Part #62 - An Early Summer Evening

Letters to Petula

My dearest Petula, oh I wish I knew a way to tell you how much I love you. No poem or song can possibly express the depth of my feelings for you. Poems are inadequate but they are all I have. My heart is yours, my love, completely, honestly and truly. It is yours forever and I could never take it away. You are special and beautiful to me like no other ever was or could be.


The last 9 years with you have passed so quickly, even though we've been through so much together. We've had our ups and downs of course, but I would not trade for all the money in the world. Sometimes I wish we could've met much sooner so that we'd have more time together. But I want the time we have going forward to be special. I want every day with you to mean something, no matter how small.


I thought maybe the intensity of these feelings would lessen a bit but no, they just seem to get stronger. Whether we make love, or I just hold you at night, my heart is set free from all past hurts. You have set me free but free as I am, I am still yours.


Sometimes I look at you when you don't notice. Like in the car or the bus. When I look at you my heart melts because you're so beautiful. And to feel you, the softness of your beautiful tropical chocolate skin, every inch of you is heavenly to touch and yes, it's a mystery how I can be daydreaming so much about you when we've been together for so long already, but there it is. I am so in love with you, my angel, more than I've ever been before....
