I Love You

Happy Valentine’s Day!

     As I reflect today, Valentine’s Day, on the loves I have had, and the loves I have lost, I can see that how I think about love today is different than how I thought about love in times past.

Love is beautiful, abundant and always around us for the taking in a moment. Fear has kept me from love. Fear has kept me from experiencing the love I have always wished for. Fear has held my heart hostage. I choose to no longer live in fear. My heart wants to break free of the prison fear has kept it in. Today, I release the chains and let my heart soar to places my heart has never dared soar before. For a love I have today, may not be here tomorrow, so I want to cherish and value those I love and let you know how special you are to me.

I will never expect for you to just “know” I love you. I will tell you. I will touch you. I will show you in a million different little ways just how much I love you so. If ever you don’t feel my love, or I am not expressing it the way you need me to, know it is okay to tell me what you need and I will do the same. Always tell me what you need because I need to be able to do the same to you. If I can’t give you what you need, I will tell you and you me.

I cannot promise you all my tomorrows, but I can promise you my today. Because all we have is right here in this moment, and in this moment I am here with you and for you. I can’t promise you who I will be or what I will become, because all I know is who I AM right here in this moment. Right here in this moment is someone who loves you deeply with all of her heart. I don’t expect you to make me the same kind of promises, because you cannot make promises on something you cannot foresee. Who we are in this moment, may not be who we are in future moments.

Life is a journey and we each have our paths. Sometimes we share the road, and sometimes we walk alone. I welcome you along my path for I know you were sent to walk with me for a reason. Our encounter none other than divine. What I need is the space to be me, all of me, just how I am. When you fall, I will be there to pick you up and dust you off. I will wipe away your tears as you will wipe away mine. For some days one may be carrying the other depending on the loads we bear.

I may walk with you 100 days, or I may walk with you a lifetime. However long I walk with you, I want each day for you to know that I am walking beside you and that I love you – for I may never get the chance to walk alongside you again. I choose today, and I choose right now, for I see you as a heavenly gift. I cannot worry about the future or the what if’s and what not’s, for worry will do nothing but take me away from this very moment, this very moment I have been blessed to walk alongside with you.

I can promise you that I will do my best to be true to myself and not lose myself while I walk by your side. Help me remember who I am and gently push me to always be true to myself and I will do the same for you. I will be open and honest and speak my truth and you are safe to do the same with me. For with this understanding, comes a balance that helps us both remember who we are. And if the day comes where our paths must part and you must walk one way and I another, I will let you walk with grace and love you still, hoping that someday we will meet up again once more.

I love you.
