Recipe for Love

Amy Oxford

Take a little bit of me
And a little bit of you
Add an entire decade
And all that we've been through

2 cups of loyalty
generously sprinkled with trust
A pinch of forgiveness
And laughter is a must

Blend a smile, a kiss and
Holding each others hands
Add this all together
Between a woman and a man

Stir in two hearts
Sprinkled with adoration
Stir it all together
And you get a good foundation
For Love.

To Be One With Each Other

George Eliot
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?

Love Is Like Magic

Author Unknown
Love is like magic, and it always will be,
For love still remiins life's sweet mystery.
Love works in ways that are marvelous and strange,
There's nothing in life that love cannot change!
Love can transform the most commonplace
Into beauty and grandeur and sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish, understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart, and not with its mind.
Love is the answer that everyone seeks;
Love is the language that everyone speaks.
Love can't be bought, it is priceless and free.
Love, like pure magic, is life's sweet mystery.

Give Your Hearts

Kahlil Gibran
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

I've Married One of Shakespeare's Dreams

Ogden Nash
Geniuses of countless nations
Have told their love for generations
Till all their memorable phrases
Are common as goldenrod or daisies.
Their girls have glimmered like the moon,
Or shimmered like a summer moon,
Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,
Now the sunset, now the dawn,
Here the princess in the tower
There the sweet forbidden flower.
Darling, when I look at you
Every aged phrase is new,
And there are moments when it seems
I've married one of Shakespeare's dreams.

La Vita Nuova (excerpt)

Dante Alighieri
In that book which is
My memory...
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you
Appear the words...
Here begins a new life.
