My darling, I am always with you. Wherever you are, wherever you go, there I am. Even if I haven’t seen you in many years, even if I know nothing about you, about your life, I am inside you.  I have cared for you for so long, I have wanted you. I cherish what we had—what we will always have. There is no power on Earth that can make me forget you. Nothing stands in the way of my genuine affection. My heart will always take care of you. It will protect you forever. It is the shield against danger that you need.








Even More

Even more

I love you. I will always love you. My love is deeper because it has lost. I will never see you again. All I have of you is what is in my heart and my mind and soul. All I have are visions of you and me together, visions in the past, never the present or the future. I go down the street and sometimes come across a reminder of our time together. The reminder makes me smile when I have long lost the capacity to smile. You made so many great moments happen for me. I will forever be in your debt.



The Years

It was you. It was you all along. Years have gone by, more years than I dare count. Something reminds me of you. My heart whispers your name. It is the only name I care about. Yours is the only name that has ever counted. This amazes me. How can it be? How can feelings that were so alive long ago be alive still as if it was yesterday all over again?

She stood before him, her whole body trembling. I love you, she wanted to say. I know I should not because it’s not allowed, but I love you. You are my first grown up love. The man, young and good looking, kept his eyes on the chalice. He did not dare look up at the person in front of him. She waited a few minutes; then shrugged her shoulders. As her back was turned to him on her way out, she heard him gasp. Her head made a movement as if to turn towards him. She shrugged again and pushed the big thick door open.

Help! I wanted you to help me say it! I want you to understand how I feel about you. My eyes did the talking for me. I didn’t have to do anything with words. The way I stood, the way my hands tried not to show emotion or nerves—all were more eloquent than anything I would have dared say.

I see the places where we were. I see them and I remember you. You were the important one. You made them matter. Without my darling, there are no places.

I run

I run

He looks like you, enough like you to make follow him. I want to be close, close to the memory of you, close to what once was the two of us. My legs don’t run as fast as they should—not anymore. I almost lose sight of the other you. I find him again. I am happy.

I know it well. The strong, lean body. I know it when it holds me, when it shelters me after a hard day. I know the comfort I get when I see it, when I see him. It is more than priceless. The feeling of always being able to count on him is unmistakably tender and warm.
