    Every phrase begins with a word
    And every word stems from a letter
    If I wasn't writing this to you,
    I probably wouldn't know any better.

    The heart is one of the body's most vitals organs
    My heart is my soul's fundamental element
    Since my astrological sign - Leo - lives from the heart
    I shall convey to you my thoughts, desirable passions and tell you how they are meant

    I can't say I've seen you, although there was a picture on your page
    My decisions are not based on legalities and have nothing to do with age
    In my mind, my eyes have seen you a thousand times
    And my heart has wished for more
    I've kissed and embraced you with the deepest affection
    And comfort in your presence is what I most adore

    You've been to me my closest confidant
    And made me laugh when I wanted so badly to cry
    You've never touched my face with the sweetest sympathy
    But your humor has dried the tears from my eyes
    I've felt you without literally experiencing your touch
    I want to be with you, but if I could hear your voice
    That would mean just as much
    I am intoxicated by your voice when I hear you say my name
    I've become addicted, but my heart shouldn't take the blame

    When I think of you, I see a rose:
    red as can be
    Beauty defined in its purest form
    It's love God has given me
    My heart weeps no more,
    I have no reason to mourn

    The softness of the petals compels me to contemplate the tenderness of your cheeks, your lips
    How smooth they would be when I'm finally able to lay upon them a kiss
    I get this burning sensation deep in my soul
    It didn't start as a spark, but began as an inferno
    When my mind dreams of your voice, it brings out a longing in me
    It asks for your love, a kiss on the cheek
    Even a touch from your hand would make life ever so sweet

    You've drawn from me sincere and deep emotion that has been inspired by very few
    I've never seen a flower and visualized anyone else but you
    I get overwhelmed because I contemplate all good times from present to past
    I thank the Lord everyday since, thus far, our friendship did last.

    When I'm angry, you come to mind
    If there were clouds in the sky, I swear, you make the sun shine
    You mean more to me than the dirty air I breathe
    If you were to depart from this life, I'd breathe it all in, so in heaven it’s you I can see

    I thank all of you for the kind responses. It means so much to me. I never see or read a discouraging word from any of you. Yes, poeticly, I finally found someone who makes me happy in every sense of the word. Thank you again.

    Thank you for taking the time to read what I have written. Your response, PurpleMoons, is not taken lightly. Good to know some people can relate to what I am saying.
