Valentine’s

Our Story

Tell me again about the first time we met. It’s my favorite story.

Wild Magic

You don’t know who they will be, the ones who open your eyes to life’s wild magic, but when you find them, it will not be hard to tell.

Secret Admirer

I probably won’t admit it in person, but I think you’re pretty great.

Everything

Nothing feels more like everything than love.

Touchstone

When I wasn’t sure if it was
worth it
to keep going,
because of how hard it was,
you were there
to show me
it wasn’t going to be easy,
but it was going to be worth it.

Light Within

The light
inside of one
person
is enough
to change
the world,
so imagine
what we
can do
with two.

Breathless (I)

The first time
I saw you,
I knew it
was going
to take
another
fifty years
to catch
my breath.

Boundless

This is the
kind of love
that just keeps
going.

Natural Bond

Maybe it doesn’t
have to be
so serious.
Maybe we don’t
have to make a big deal
out of spending
the rest of our lives
together.

Real Magic

Life might be
a miracle,
but I never knew
magic
until I met you.

True Happiness

Exhibit a.
This is a picture
of true happiness.

Walking Together

I am proud to see
the one you are,
and the one
you are becoming.
It is no small thing,
this chance I have
been given
to walk the road
beside you.

Dream Life

I don’t know
how to find the world
that lives in my dreams,
but in all of them
you are there,
so I think that
is the place to start.

Long Shot

What are the odds
that in the span of the infinite
galactic tangle of stars
and quasars and black holes,
somehow we found
each other?

Heart Lines

There are invisible lines
connecting everything together,
and I am particularly fond of
the one that connects me to you.

Waiting to be Kissed

Every time I looked at the picture I thought how I should have kissed her, so finally I hid it in the attic & I wonder if it’s still there with us both so young & her waiting to be kissed.

True Map

There is no one who comes here that does not know this is a true map of the world, with you there in the center, making home for us all.

Some Kind of Ride

feels like some kind of ride but it’s turning out just to be life going absolutely perfectly

Slow Heat

melting in the slow heat of a summer night, damp with the dark air & thoughts of you

Single Mind

If I love you with all my heart, she said, what will you give me? & then she stopped & said I didn’t have to answer that because she was going to do it anyway.
