Love Assured


My lover and my friend--I want you to know how much I love you and why.

Thank you for acknowledging my thoughts and feelings, whether they are positive or negative, justified or unjustified. I feel safe being myself, knowing I cannot be perfect, but that you will continue to love me.

Thank you for the time you take to give me an extra hug, to tell me I am wonderful, or squeezing my hand affectionately. Those silent moments recharge my senses of appreciation for you.

Thank you for asking if you can help me work on my homework. It shows me that you are genuinely supportive of my goals that are such a part of who I am.

Thank you for answering all my questions without criticism or impatience. You have shown me that my dream of a kind and loving relationship is a reality now. You motivate me to expect and tolerate no less and to be the same with those around me. You have created calmness and safety in my life, which I only ever imagined before.

Thank you for the times you've asked me, "Do you and I need to accept that idea?" The partnership I had hoped for is expressed in little comments like that.

Thank you for speaking so complimentary of me to others. When you do this, you place such value on me that it makes me want to act even better. You helped me to find motivation to go forward again.

Thank you for being so appreciative when I remind you of a call to make or an errand to run. It shows me you do not have everything too tightly organized and it makes me want to be the same as you.

Thank you for taking the time and having the consideration to inform me when you do have plans. You show you have respect for me and for us. You always protect me from unkind words or behavior, too.

Thank you for constantly telling me or showing me that you are attracted to me physically, emotionally, and mentally. You have brought back the confidence I had misplaced some time ago. Thank you for inviting parts of my world into yours and making them one.

Thank you for going to the doctor's with me. You show your concern for me and commitment to us and that our relationship is much more than surface deep. Thank you for always being satisfied with our world. You not only remind me of the way I used to see things, but are helping me to get back that way. Thank you for having control of your future and your career. You remind me to have faith and strength in myself, too.

Thank you for hugging me and kissing me when I get home as if we were still dating. The passion that I have for you just keeps building!

Thank you for playing games with me and talking silly with me. I can see that we will never really grow old together.

Thank you for sharing your real estate secrets when you come home from work, then tucking me in at night. Thank you for your love when we hug good night. Thank you for bringing me to a place where pleasure and happiness is truly what makes me feel good.

Each day, I am in awe and say to myself, "I can't believe I just keep falling more and more in love with him every day!" Each day, I love listening to you more and more. Each day, the intensity and passion of making love to you just gets deeper. Each day, I find myself wanting you more and more. Each day, I find myself more driven, more compassionate, and more appreciative, with greater faith in you and more strength in myself. Each day with you in my life and what you give to me, I see myself becoming a better person! Thank you for all you give to me by just being in my life.

I love you and only you, and I want you and only you. I could never even imagine or wish for such a blessing when it comes to you and me being together, and how lucky we are to be in love.

I love you so very much, and I hope this reassures you, too.
