    I love this Pablo Neruda poem, and I cried a bucket when it was read in Patch Adams. This image has a typo in it, unfortunately, but it does capture my favorite segment. I think the full work should be read to fully appreciate it, though: "I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

You're trusting that person to hold the secret sections of your heart and to love the bits you thought were unlovable.

And you are as beautiful as words written by the greatest love poets of all time!!

It will never change....I am here for you always....I will never leave your side....you are my best friend....my lover....my soul mate. I love you with all of my heart!
