They say love is a powerful emotion;

Able to manipulate the mind

And the heart to be joined to another.

It enables us to understand

Truly what it means to be in another’s shoes.

When two hearts are made one,

It is a beautiful thing.

Each connection is composed of delicate stitches

That each holds a fiber

That holds the two hearts together.

It is a feeling that no person should have to live without,

For, love is stronger than hate,

And connects people on a deeper level than friendship.

Love is selective,

Which is why I am grateful to have been chosen by you,

And you alone.

Before we met,

I never knew what it meant to want something so badly,

More than anything in the world;

To just wake up and know everything will be alright

Because you’ll be by my side.

Never have I missed anyone so much that

My soul feels incomplete when they’re absent;

I don’t feel whole unless you’re by my side.


Such a strange emotion,

Weird, some may say,

But I don’t mind;

If I’m with you,

I know I am in the right place;

I was always meant to be, In your arms,

So you could hold my heart and my hand

For all eternity.
