Sitting here looking out the front window alone on this valentine evening I have been rummaging through my mind and memories of love that I once shared with someone. No matter who or where my thoughts take me I seem to always return to one place, one person. If I could have her for my valentine today I would share this with her - again. It’s something I wrote to her with all of heart and soul, yet it was lost somehow.
I've been trying to figure out what "it" is about you that has me so enthralled, so captivated in such a short period of time. I have a mental list about a mile long of things about you, that you do, that you are... I finally decided what it is... "It" is not one thing or two things..."it" is YOU! It's not a list of many attributes - it's the sum of all of them put together.
"It" is the way you make feel when I'm around you. So secure, so comfortable. I am able to tell you things that I would never share with anyone else. There is no feeling of vulnerability... I feel like I can talk to you, tell you everything and anything. I have never spent as much time talking with anyone about me and my feelings - and you let me. You listen, you respond, you react and you share along with me. I have never experienced that before.
"It" is you... you are beautiful to me. You have all the right parts in all the right places. From your sparkling eyes to your lovely ankles! You excite me whenever I see you! That trademark smile and expressive eyes, I melt inside every time you share them with me.
I want to reach out and touch you at every possible moment. Just to place my hands on your shoulders, put my hand in yours; lightly caress your soft skin. It sends shivers throughout me that are multiplied a thousand times when YOU touch ME. There is warmth, a surge of electricity when we touch that I have not felt before with anyone else.
You have a sparkle, a vitality about you that sweeps me up. I feel your energy, your enthusiasm and you take me with you. I love to hear your voice, whether it's over the phone or from you sitting next to me. It is so comforting, so lyrical sometimes.
I have never been so totally engaged by anyone before in my life. You make my day when I can talk to you, when I can see you smile, when I can hold your hand, when I can kiss you. I am so completely enthralled by you... Not by this or that... by "you", you are "it".
I have never been as happy, I have never been as excited about being with someone, about sharing with someone. I have never looked forward to tomorrow the way I do now, because of you! No one has ever done to me what you have done!
"You" ARE "it".....
I feel so fortunate to have found you, to have shared with you, to have had the opportunity for you to be a part of me, a part of my life...
There are no words to express it... I could write a hundred stories and never be able to convey what I'm feeling... I must rely on a single word, just four letters that I hope have as much of an impact for you as they have for me... I love you! Believe me, I do. I have never been so sincere, so ardent, so definite, so confident about anything...
