A Love Letter

A Love Letter
Started writing for the Love Letter Contest but finished too late : (

 My Precious Maria,
I can remember it like it was yesterday… your first words to me…
They sang a melody like no other I had ever heard.
I swear my heart did a back flip at “Hello”
Since the day we met I’d seen my world through starry eyes
Through sun drenched days and blue colored skies
And your beauty had become the arms into which I hopelessly fell. 
Looking back… I am in awe of the way we were with each other
We were truly like best friends from those first days 
And through the years our love grew strong 
Our hearts knew this home is where we’d always belong
Walking around with you, holding your hand… I was the proudest man alive
And that feeling never changed throughout our years together.
I told you everyday that I loved You, that you were all the woman I could ever need…
And that you were the prettiest girl in the world, indeed.
I can still feel the press of your sweet gorgeous lips against mine 
And how they always made me weak in the knees
I loved when you insisted that I kiss you “like I mean it” 
when I was rushing out the door…
I can still hear with pristine clarity…your inimitable laugh at my stupid humor…
how I adored that………..How I miss that……….

I’m wrapped within a loneliness of unrequited bliss
As I stare at photos on the wall and dream a lovers wish.
A wish to feel you loving me, that’s where my anguish lye
 or hear your sweet voice saying… “you’re my very handsome guy”…
I promise I will try my best…
 to hold on to all that we’ve been blest
inside my heart’s special place 
reserved for your ethereal grace. 
So whenever I want to speak with you or hold you tight..
I will listen for your whispers
 in the flush of the wind on a cool autumn’s night 
I’ll see you in the stars when the moon’s full to sight
And I’ll kiss your lips when my dreams are in flight… 
In love for all eternity
And baby… although you are gone… my heart is still so in love with you
And longs for the day that we dance once again in the presence of God.

    Awesome Awesome and nothing next to it can fly, by the grace of God you've written a perfect love note, it speaks of the kind of love, that was scribed in heaven before you tasted the fruits of it on earth, she is your angel up above, showering you with her love, far beyond human comprehension, she loves you through the wind, hail, and snow, be blessed, tis better to have loved and lost, then not having loved at all, an old saying but so true, xxx

    I am moved Bernard and it makes me appreciate my sweetie even more. Many people could live ten lifetimes and never experience the love you have known. You are truly a blessed man. Twice blessed because you know you will be reunited.

    I've read this before, very moving and individual write Bernard. Is one that sort of defies comment, soulful. I was happy to add my happy birthday to you, was very nice of Becca to do that, she is real 'Lady', and friend. Take care, Richard
