Words on Love

Not my own words but rather a collection of thoughts that I feel close to….

Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations and full acceptance even celebration of another’s personhood. – K. Casey

I love you
Not for what you are
But for what I am
When I am with you.

If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don’t have it, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough.

It is in deep solitude that I find teh gentleness with which I can truly love. The more solitary I am the more affection I have for others. Solitude & silence teach me to love others for what they are, not for what they say.

A Glimmer of hope

I want to love you as you ought to be loved
If I did our love would be grand
Something inside me is dead, my love
You have stirred it with the touch of your hand.

I want to be loved as I see others are loved
With eternity seeming but moments away
Some things are sacred and scarred by roughness
My trust has been given but it is hard to convince it to stay.

I see you as no one else sees you
I see you as I see no one else
I am unable to show you and make you feel
The way I want to…
The way I ought to…

But ‘they’ say love cannot be forced
What will be, will be
And it is.
Look at us.
What a mess.

I long to show you what is in my heart
What is real, what is possible
I get giddy
Short of breath
This is only the start
of what I know will be ideal

You are beautiful
Please don’t ever change
On the inside, the core
The you. That is beautiful.

You are brave
I have not your courage
You fly without wings
Fear is difficult for you

You are different
Please don’t conform
We need more like you
A voice that is to be heard

I miss you – Plain & Simple
Everything about you – Physical & Mental
I say good night – I say good morning
When you’re there & not
I beg you – Time & Again
Find forgiveness – For myself
I will try – Always & Forever
Everlasting – Care & Affection
I give my all – Work or Play
Every moment I treasure – A Gift, An Honor
I want to care for you – Old & Young
Find your sore spots & step carefully
I’m not afraid anymore & I was
For I found Strength & Wisdom
In you I believe & Trust
I don’t find my lessons unuseful though
I want you to see me as I see you
Fragile & Wise
Foolish & Strong
Right & sometimes Wrong
Always Caring
Ready to Listen
Trying to understand – though hard sometimes
I miss you – plain and simple
