love starts as an attraction to another.
love grows with mutual respect.
love thrives on confidence and dignity.
love survives on wisdom and honor.
new love, stirs the emotions, moves the soul and fires the blood setting hearts aflame.
love of a mate provides us with another soul to feel kinship, with someone to share life with,
someone to be loved, in spite of shortcomings and human frailties.
someone with which we can share meaningful conversation, and plans for the future.
someone to recall the past with, to dream with.
someone with whom silence is comfortable.
another soul on the earth who is in tune with yours.
someone who cares deeply about your well being and who in turn is cared for by you... just as deeply.
someone whose happiness means as much, if not more than your own.
someone to place your trust in without fear of betrayal.
not having to worry when you are apart, because you are secure in the knowledge that they will honor the love you share.
someone to hopefully grow old beside, to share the winter of life with, while recalling the summer of your dreams.
lover is someone who, with a look, can touch your heart, ease your mind and bring comfort to your soul.
someone whose voice is music to your ear.
someone who by just entering a room makes your heart soar and joy fill your being, makes you want to touch them, be close to them.
who cant run your blood to molten fire with desire, their presence being food for your soul.
someone for whom your love grows stronger not weaker with the passing years.
someone who is willing to talk out problems and share concerns,
not look for an easy way out if all does not go just as expected.
someone willing to share difficulties as well as good times.
someone to walk through those difficult time with.
someone to share all things with: tenderness, passion, warmth,
dreams and desire, laughter and tears but mostly life's journey.
a casually dropped piece of clothing can bring your love to mind as the scent of them clings,
and turns your thoughts to love, as pleasant memories collect to be reviewed at leisure.
love of a partner requires long-term commitment and wisdom and above all, work from both partners to nourish
and nurture that love into a living growing thing. without nourishment, all things die, even love.
do not easily discard love, for the day may come when love, in turn, discards you.
place a high value in this the most precious of life's joys.
some never find this treasure, many find and lose it through no fault of their own.
some discard it lightly as if it were of little value and easily replaced.
the ability to love and be loved is the most precious of gifts given to man, and as such should be hightly treasured.
