Dear you, From Me.

Dear you,

You’ve opened up a part of me
That has been closed for a while.
You’re showing me things
I haven’t seen in ages —
Things I thought I’d rather not see anymore,
But now I find pleasure in them again
And it’s a wonderful feeling,
Thanks to you.

The images of the future
I see through your eyes
Are not what I envisioned on my own.
My visions were distorted by past hurt,
But with you there’s a thrill of anticipation
As we look towards a glorious, new horizon.
You’ve renewed my hope in finding ‘true’ love
And incase you didn’t know, you complete me.

I wake up thankful everyday knowing
That had we met 20 yrs ago
We might not have been
Right for each other as we are now.
We needed to face our own trials;
We needed to endure our own pain;
We needed to be refined and made ready;
We needed time to blossom.

As I find new things
To love about you each day,
I hope the expressions gratitude
That flow from my soul
Make their way to yours.

I love you more
Than I thought I ever could,
And will try in earnest
To show you often
Just how special you are to me.

I’m happy again because of you…

Sincerely,
Me.

      1. Oh, sorry you’re not well.
        Fell better soon.
        Glad your foot is better.

        I’m a bit ‘off’ myself. It was a pretty exhausting week. Just had a nice nap. ☺
