See my words

Don't depend on my voice for what I need to say.
Look in my eyes for they are the window to my heart.
See my words there as you would if I had sent them to you in a letter.
See my words as you would if they had fallen from my lips.

Don't depend on my voice for what I need you to hear.
Watch the rise and fall of my chest for it shows how fast my heart is beating.
Listen to the words my heart is saying as if I were singing to you its rhythm.
Listen to the words my heart is saying as if they came on a sweet whisper from my tongue.

Don't depend on my voice for what I need you to understand.
Touch my body for it will react in a way my words cannot express.
Understand its shudder as if it was a crack in my voice.
Understand its shudder as if I were reading to you every ripple.

See my words in every action, look and touch from me for they give away everything I can't possibly voice and if you look close enough you will understand that they say I love you...and so much more.

Dear, Sweet, Sweets21,

I am serious about this salutation.

You cannot begin to fathom just HOW MUCH having YOU as My Friend means to ME.

Today, people have forgotten just much a blessing a true friend (like yourself) is. I consider myself rich with your friendship.

I cannot stress it any other way.

You just sleep and live as right as you can, but always remember what I said tonight in THIS comment box.

And YOU can write me anytime you like.

Take care of YOU for me. Deal?

Peace.
