Today's letter will be a short one, but I promise you, there will be more. There are so many things I want to share with you and our time together, it seems, is far too brief. There is only one message I want you to hear today...
First, foremost and forever; I want you to know that I love you. I love you more than I even knew it was possible to love. I love you so deeply that I am sure that only a select few have experienced it in their lifetime. Every love poem I've ever been touched by in the deepest most secret place of my heart has been written about you, for you, I am sure of it.
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: Where “I” does not exist, nor “You”, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. - Pablo Neruda
Precious angel baby, oh how you are loved!
