From the heart

Now people, this is a huge departure from my normal blogging.

[blog LIBlonde97] has been taunting me for the last week that she was approaching her hundredth post and that she'd already written it.

In a similar fashion to my birthday present she refused steadfastly to reveal the contents.

I knew that she'd post it on her way to the plane. Typical last minute stuff so my wait would be as protracted as possible. Arrrrgh. She knows I'm an impatient bastard.

Still. It was worth waiting for. As is she.

So guys, and I really mean the guys... if you have any sense, you'll skip to the bottom real quick like and leave a comment along the lines of 'nice one mate'.

Anyone else who has an aversion to displays of unashamed love should do the same.

My open letter to LIBlonde97

Dearest A,

You know that I love you more than I'm ever able to express in words.

I look at you, and my heart swells. Should I stop to consider the effect you have had on me, tears run down my cheeks like slow moving rivers.

What you have done for me with your love is perhaps the greatest thing that I have ever experienced. You have single handedly rebuilt parts of my heart which I felt sure were ruined beyond repair.

You are the ying to my yang, the yang to my ying. You make me whole and complete, yet you are not a crutch for me. Your compassion and caring are fresh water to a man who has walked through the desert for longer than he cares to admit.

For you I am an open book, there won't be secrets between us, bar the ones used for birthday surprises or planned displays of affection.

I thank so many things, so many circumstances now, where previously I cursed them. These things, all of them have brought us together... and for that I'm incredibly grateful.

I have always been a dreamer, always believed in something more than myself. I have held a torch within myself for the ideal that true love exists.

Since we met, I knew that torch was never held in vain. The first time I saw you, I remember the flame bursting into life. The intensity of it's heat filling me completely, and I knew beyond doubt at that point you were the one for me.

Babe, I have so many things to thank you for. You are without a doubt the most special person I have met. My life has been transformed as have I.

Before, I lacked conviction. Years of disparaging remarks and constant belittling took their toll on me. The softness inside me began to crystalise and become brittle.

While I never feared my heart turning to stone, I worried that the barriers to it would become inpenetrable.

Like King Arthur, you walked into my life and with an effortless movement, pulled my heart back into the light again. From that moment on, it has shone brilliantly. The crystals that were forming have gone. The pain surrounding it, a distant memory.

Those words and the life I endured serve me now in a much more positive manner. Those words I still hear now and again, and they remind me just how special you are, and how different my life is now.

Honey. I love you. If there was a word that encompassed the completeness of how much you are loved by me, I would use it.

Everything we have been through together has made what we have stronger. The time apart makes me appreciate the time we have together.

Having you with me, makes me appreciate life.

I know my heart will never be the same now that you are in it, and for that I will always be grateful.

When I can finally place a ring on your finger and show the world that there is no one else in my life, I will be the happiest guy ever. For the first time I understand the significance of the rings and for the first time, I have someone who deserves that.

dark to light
pain dissolves
your influence
our love evolves

never strangers
before we met
the time we did
i'll ne'er forget

what we have
we know to be
for it will last

you in my arms
you in my life
i long for you
to be my wife

This woman is truly my other half. I have never felt what I do for her with anyone else.

This, for those who know... is only a taste of what she'll get on a daily basis. Seeing as she left me with her list to ponder, I felt she deserved something to come home to. Something she could look back on. Something for her to use if she ever wondered how I really felt about her.

She. The keeper of my heart.

The bottom line is...ya know when ya know.

I've said it before and will say it again...I know that the you

you both for sharing those parts of you that encourage others to
know that all is possible in it's perfect time.

You already know that her list made me teary eyed you bastard, you had to go and make me bawl even harder... sure you don't have a spare brother for me?

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

Of course I had to read it all through.

That torch looks good in you.

"Because a love story is the only story worth telling" -- this is why this one needs to be celebrated. I could not be happier for you both.

Of course I read the whole are very fortunate, both of you. I can only hope that someday I find that person who I can share and feel all of those things with.

    Quoting FeistySyn:
    You already know that her list made me teary eyed you bastard, you had to go and make me bawl even harder... sure you don't have a spare brother for me?
I already asked...and was told that though a brother exists...he's not nearly the man our bulgy is. DARN.

In truth, I am so glad to have been in the "light" of your love, you've done much for my belief and faith that a "true" love IS possible if one only has the courage required to take it. If wishes were "tangible" - you guys would be so overloaded you couldn't walk. Blessed be to both of you. Thanks for sharing it with all of us. ((((major hugs))))

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

Guess this pretty much clinches me not getting to keep the quilt.

I've always said that a quilt is like a hug from someone that loves you that can't be there.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Ok...between the two of you I have too many sentimental tears in my eyes to really see what I'm typing.
*goes off in search of tissues*

Everything about the two of you together is brilliantly beautiful and perfect beyond words. But already knew that.
