Have you woken up next to the same person so many times, you don't even have to touch them to know if they want you?
Falling in love is exciting and thrilling. Every new experience opens your eyes, and heightens your awareness of that person. Long looks, holding hands, gentle kisses...
Tentative touches, beating hearts and a passion that could last a lifetime.
When the long looks have become secrets that make you laugh and holding hands includes a little one. Gentle kisses are stolen, then savored until next time.
Touches are familiar and desire comes quickly.
Knowing someone so well, there absence leaves an indelible mark. The short temper no longer leads to loving and the uncertainty eats at your stomach.
Love no longer taken or returned petrifies to stone.
One word: LOVE
When the thought of never being with your lover again sets your soul to running. Running back to the safety of a love given and needed. Relief, a tidal wave crashing against the shores of a broken heart. Forgiveness washing away the stain of imperfection.
