My Dearest Darling-The Lover of My Soul,

As I sit here writing to You after all the intervening years since our time together I
am still so amazed and thankful that my memories of You and Us are as vivid as the
day we made them. 

I can see You as clearly as when I gently held Your face in my hands and kissed Your
lips so tenderly every morning.  The most exquisite greetings to a morning I have
ever had in my life.  Ah, but then all of the memories that I Treasure most were
made by You in my life!

Your memories are what I guard more jealously than silver or gold or any other
worldly possession!  The world can have their possessions as long as I can have the
memories of You and I together and a hope of a heaven someplace where we can be
together again and never, ever parted!

I have no need of the Masters of the ages and their writings and stories, made up or
true!  I had what no words could ever give me, I had You in my life, in my Heart and
in my Soul!!  I had You in my mornings, in my middays and in those glorious nights
together in each other’s arms with our skin melting together as our Heart’s beat as
one and we wrapped each other in Our Love and felt an ecstasy as explosive and
sweet as a shooting star!

I cling to those memories of You and Us with the same strength and tenacity as I do
to life and my every breath.  If I should ever lose those Beloved memories of You
and Us it will be at the same time that my grip on life is lost too!

I revel in the details of Your face.  I view all the paintings of Your body and Our
times in the memories of my mind each and every day!  I feel the warmth of Your
body on my Soul!  I lick my lips and still taste the sweetness of Your kisses.
I remember Our Passionate moments and I cry!  Mostly tears of Joy from knowing
that I received the greatest gift of Love from You, My Darling!  You gave me Your
Heart and Soul and I gave mine to You!  There is no greater gift to give or receive!
I am eternally thankful for the gifts of love that we have given, shared and exchanged with each other!!

But some of those tears are from the sadness of knowing what I have missed
through the years of separation from You even if it was just our bodies.
I cannot deny that my body longs for You each day.  It still feels the yearning
to kiss You, to embrace You,  to feel Your skin on mine, to trace Your body with
my fingers as an artist would sketch every inch of You and to know again the passions that we shared!

My Heart and My Soul have not had to endure such tears.  They both have always
been bound to You with bonds that can never be broken by a physical separation.
They always comfort me with the memories of You singing and humming and I can’t
help but sing along in harmony with You.  Your memories always make me happy!
Each and every time!

I am writing this to You as physical proof to the Universe, and You, of my undying
Love for You and my Lifetime wish and desire to be with You again either in the
here and now or in the hereafter!

I am beseeching the Universe to continue to send You the Love and Adoration I have
been sending You since the day we parted.

I am the Lover of Your Soul!  And I know that You are The Lover of My Soul, too and
have been since those times in each other’s arms with our Hearts beating as One
and Our Souls intertwined for eternity!

I hate the thought of putting down my pen and the connection I feel to Your Soul at
this moment!  I desire to keep sending my words to You through the Universe but
my body can no longer resist the need for sleep.

And now that I think about it, this isn’t so bad.  It only means that I can be with You
again in my dreams!!  Good night, My Sweet Lover!!

From the Lover of Your Heart, and Your Soul and Your Body now, as always,

For those of You too young to remember or those who have forgotten one of the
greatest romantic movies of all time please watch, stream or rent the movie
Dr. Zhivago!  For the romantics in the crowd be sure you have Kleenex nearby.
Maybe I should have posted a warning too – “TEAR ZONE AHEAD”.

This is my fantasy of what a letter written to “The Lover Of My Soul” might have

I hope You enjoyed this and will view my other works as well!

Until Then,
