Love letter # 79
Before you, I existed in complete and utter selfishness. For a moment, it seemed like I was alive. But life is more than feeding – it’s giving.
And what is it you give to me? Permission to love.
You are the cloud that says rain. You are the ocean that says swim. You are the song being sung. I am the dancer flying round the room.
Before you, my heart was a mere valve. Now it is a fountain. Now it is a star pouring light. Everything has changed – and I would not have it any other way.
The day is a temple, the night is a shrine. All this because I give to you – because it flows through me. I am not the keeper of love – only its humble typist.
You are the bell, I am the ringing. Together we herald the dawn.
