How does one measure joy?
When I look into your eyes and see your soul as it speaks to my heart. I am totally committed to you for this lifetime.
How does one measure happiness?
When the rhythm of my heartbeat synchronizes itself to the beat of yours and I feel that same beat of yours within my chest even when I am separated from your physical presence. I know that my happiness is shared by you , for you,
with you. Your love envelopes me like the petals of a sacred flower and I glow in the fire of the loveworth your soul reveals and shares with me.
Come my beloved and know that my commitment to you extends beyond this short span of time we call life.
I shall age with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love your for this was destined to be.
You are my joy, keyholder of my happiness.
It is I who loves you.
