A sequel to my previously posted love letter, although different. I still stand by my belief that other than love, what the world needs is more love letters.


Tonight is one of the many and countless nights I lie awake, praying for you until sleep would kiss my eyes. As I have incessantly done over the years, I'd float into a timeless nook where I'm beheld by you until the morning sun would caress my face. There we would depart only to be reassured that each departure is a tug to the chain of days where we are linked together. One sweet day, you'll find your way to me and I to you.

When you finally will see me, you won't notice that I'm plump and that my hair is topsy-turvy short. That my eyes are too big and my lips too small would be of no importance to you. That I have a scar and my skin is not perfect won't matter to you for you would see someone different. You will see someone breathtakingly beautiful through eyes graced by love.

I can talk and act without pretense, wearing my heart out on my sleeve and you won't be displeased. Rather, grateful - appreciating the sincerity and trust. You will know and value the trust and respect I have in you because you love me.

In return, you will never know what it's like to be jealous and insecure because you will know that I won't love any other guy but you and only you. By then, you should know that I've loved you before I even met you. It's you I have consistently been asking GOD for. You will know that how you look won't matter at all for I already have a picture of you in my mind taken from my heart's eyes. How you will look won't change the way I will see you. You can age up to a thousand and still I'll see the disarmingly handsome prince whose every smile takes my breath away. It won't be your looks that will sweep me off my feet, leaving me lovestruck and swooning in daze. It will be the kindness, the witty humorous quips, the respect, the patience, the understanding and even the little seemingly insignificant things that you will do that will lock the chains and make you the keeper of my heart.

You won't always feel a need to fill in the silence of every second we're together with impressive and sophisticated words for you will know that silence don't necessarily mean void, especially when I'm with you. Sometimes, a lot of things are known better through words not spoken through the lips. You will value silence as much as you value time for you will know that there is no time wasted in silence but rather, most of the magnificent and priceless things are witnessed in silence. You will hear me better when I say I love you in silence.

You will appreciate the beauty only nature can provide. As the sunset shouts the glory with each magical hue it paints in the endless sky, so along with it will you see my love for you. You will know that every declaration of majesty and awe you see around you is also the declaration of my love for you.

You will be sure and you will have peace for you will know that my love won't end along with the last breath I shall take. Death is temporary. Death doesn't have the power to end my love for you. I can and I will love you even beyond eternity, that, you can be certain of.

You will know that I love you because I do.

Yours Alone.
