Favorite Quote:
Love is not a feeling; it is a gift, an act, an ultimate sacrifice. -Me (Em)

Without you,
I could not find the strength
To drag my beaten body
Out of bed each morning.

If you should ever leave me,
I would cling to you,
Like a child
To her mother's skirt.

But no,
You would not leave your other half.
Our hearts are but one heartbeat.
Our souls have merged into a single soul.
We are one.

I thought that I loved you.
I believed my heart was bursting.

Last night,
I knew that what I had percieved as love,
Was but a drop in the ocean
Of the aching passion I had for you.

But today,
I discovered that I was wrong.
For what I had felt the night before,
Was absolutely nothing
Compared to what I feel now.

If you think you love me,
Your devotion must be a grain of sand
Compared to the beaches of devotion I have for you.

My heart does not ache.
It breaks into innumerable pieces for you,
Like stars in the sky.

The author's comments:
Inspired in part by The Princess Bride, written by S. Morgenstern.

I dedicate this poem to Jesus Christ, who is capable of love far deeper than the words of this poem can describe.
I also dedicate it to my future husband, whoever he may be.
