To My Wife

Norma Jean

When I say “I Love You” I mean I love you absolutely

I will not Love you more tomorrow …
Because of your noble and magnificent works
Nor will your failings cause me to love you less …

I love you not for the title that you bear in this world
Nor for what you may do or have
Though all that is a part of you …
I love you for the deep down hidden part of you that is real …

The part of you that knows joy and laughter …
and pain … the part of you that knows fear …
and hunger … and loneliness, the you that knows grief
and loss of love … ecstasy and exhilaration …

I am moved by you … I am touched by your need …
your vulnerability …
and I am inspired by your courage
your willingness to go on, your great capacity for love

I know who you are and I am in awe …
My love for you is complete
There is nothing left
to make it better, or more …

Now you know how it is that I love you …
know also that in that way I know you love me
It is finished … our love is perfect …
Let us now simply live and enjoy it!

My Darling, I will love you forever …
