Tahira, my dearest, my desire…
My heart thrills, to hear you say “I love you,” to hear you call me “my love.” For I love you, with all my heart and soul, all my gentleness and fire. I love you, Tahira, my longed-for. I love you with every iota of tenderness, of desire, of calm seas and burning flames. My patience and my heart will never leave you, summer-dancer, rain-singer; you have my love forever. My heart’s desire is to love you, cherish you, be the place where your wings are free to spread and you are free to fly. To live and love with you and share forever with you.
Oh Tahira, my beautiful, my dreamed-of…I am here, running towards you with my arms reaching out to catch you and my heart beating in fiery joy. I will give you my strength, my love, my tenderness for all time. My heart will catch yours, O enchantress of my dreams, my eyes. I will catch you.
Yours, my love, yours forever
