When I say I love you I mean that I love you with all my heart. You are someone that I can count on to hold me up above the water when I am too tired to swim. I am hopelessly bound by the chains of love's links. Is my love a gift or yet another cruel joke played on my weary heart? Why do I weep tears of happiness and yet still have tears left to weep in fear and sorrow? I long to feel your arms around me and your lips upon mine as you profess your undying love in deeds and words. I yearn to feel the warmth of your body covering mine. I crave the passion of our lover’s embrace. I love you and I know as long as my heart beats you'll be a part of me. Please don’t hurt me because I have had more than my fair share of hurt in my lifetime.
