a love letter to you
Even now, today:
Sitting, writing to you, in this bed,
where you made my body,
my heart, my soul feel
The greatest gift I could give &
I feel you in every breath I take.
Never have I loved more from afar
(at least in my best moments)
without an ounce of melancholia:
thank you, thank you, thank you
is my whispered prayer to you
every waking hour of
this life I have been given.
Never have I felt more awe
in how loving can change a person -
work wonders on the heart.
I mistakenly believed for a short time
that you had taken away my
opportunity to love-
to be loved, to feel love.
Now I see, as I saw at the start of us,
you have opened up my
opportunity to love
even more deeply than I could
ever imagine – strengthened,
is simply all it can be called.
Magic love, this mystical
muse I live with
not in my memory-
here in my heart.
Accepting what is and loving it
anyway- or even BECAUSE
of exactly what it is.
I could not have written a greater love story if I
tried to imagine in my wildest fantasies.
