I love you this much
By Ms. Kahlua
Enough to do anything for you.
Enough to give my life, my love, my heart and my soul to and for you.
Enough to willingly give all of my time, efforts, thoughts, talents, trust and prayers to you.
Enough to want to protect you, care for you, guide you, hold you, comfort you, listen to you and cry to you and with you.
Enough to be completely comfortable with you, act silly around you, never have to hide anything from you and be myself with you.
Enough to share all of my sentiments, dreams, goals, fears, hopes and worries-- my entire life with you.
Enough to want the best for you, to wish for your successes, and hope for the fulfillment of all your endeavors.
Enough to keep my promises to you and pledge my loyalty and faithfulness to you.
Enough to cherish your friendship, adore your personality, respect your values, and see you for who you are.
Enough to fight for you, compromise for you, and sacrifice myself for you if need be.
Enough to miss you incredibly when we're apart, no matter what length of time it's for and regardless of the distance.
Enough to spend the rest of my life with you, be there for you when you need or want me, and never ever want to leave you or live without you.
I love you this much.
As I read Ms. Kahlua’s poem I thought to myself how difficult it would be for me to actually say those words. I believe my pride and dignity would probably choke them away from me before they’d escape into the unknown…the fearful place where we await an honest, but genuine response. The hope is that the response would be a dream-like romanticized happily ever after.
If the response wasn’t clear…if the answer could be unfavorable….could you / would you step out on the ledge of life and say these words to your true love OR would you be more comfortable living in the safe unknown of unrequited love?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
