come into our lives
and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints
on our hearts
. And we are never, ever the same." --Anonymous
Earlier today, I was looking through my box of every single letter anyone has ever sent me, and every single letter that I've meant to send, but never got the chance-- I found an old love letter to my boyfriend of a year and a half. Although we're not together anymore, I like the way I wrote it, and just thought I would share.
I love you, plain and simple. As the universe spirals slowly into oblivion, I love you. When your illusions become disillusioning, and the stars fail to shine, I love you.
You are my sun that rises and my moon that sets. You are "the highway and the peregrine and all the sails ever to go out to sea." You are the light in my eyes and the smile in my soul. But most of all, you are the embodiment of my heart, and I cherish that.
