I Love You
for So Many Reasons

Before I met you
I spent a lot of time
meeting all kinds of people
I had a lot of fun
and learned a lot
Though each person I met
had great characteristics
something was missing

No one person
had all the qualities that
I had hoped a person could have
someone whose every action
and thought I could respect
someone who was very intelligent
yet could also be fun-loving
someone who was sensitive, 
yet virile
exciting and sensuous
someone who knew what they wanted out of life
a beautiful person inside and out

I could not find a person like this
until I met you
I love you

                by Susan Polis Schutz




I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.

I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.

I love you because you have done more than any creed could have done to make me good, and more than any fate could have done to make me happy.

You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign. You have done it by being yourself.


I guarantee that we'll have tough times.
And I guarantee that at some point
     one or both of us will want to get out.
But I also guarantee that if I don't ask
     you to be mine,
I'll regret it for the rest of my life.
'Cause I know in my heart
You're the only one for me.

Two Empty Arms
by All Leather

Love that runs away from me
Dreams that just won't let me be
Blues that just keep bothering me
Chains that just won't set me free
I'm too far away from you and your sweet charm.
Just out of reach of my two empty arms.

Each night in my dreams I see your face
My love for you I can't erase
I awake and find you gone
I'm lost and all alone
Your lips so sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my two empty arms.

If you need me I'll be here
I'll be faithful never fear
I think of you, both night and day
So close yet so far away
Just out of reach of my two empty arms.


If You Love Something Set It Free
If It Comes Back,
It Was And Always Will Be Yours

If It Never Returns,
It Was Never Yours To Begin With

      In the morning
        when the sun
          is just starting to light the day
            I am awakened
              and my first thoughts are of you

      At night
        I stare at the dark trees
          silhouetted against the quiet stars
            I am entranced into a complete peacefulness
              and my last thoughts are of you

                             by Susan Polis Schutz

With these words,
I want to say that
you are incredibly special to me.

You are so important
to my days -- and so essential
    to the smile within me.
That certain space where our lives
overlap is the place that brings me
the most understanding,
    the most peace,
the nicest memories, and a joy that
    comes to my heart so constantly.

When you read this,
I want you to think of me
    smiling softly at you,
and thanking you.......
    for all that you are.....to me.

Music Touches Feelings
by Susan P. Schutz

Music touches feelings
that words cannot
It is the melody
of the heart
the voice
of the spirit

Some music
causes me to dream
Some music
inspires me to create
Some music
causes me to think of the past
Some music
helps me plan the future

When I am with you
all music
moves me to love

Love is.....

listening to each other
     with the heart,
hearing what is
     often unspoken.

Love is putting
     another's happiness
     and well-being
     ahead of our own,
     and doing so cheerfully.

Love is giving your best
     to someone else....

Love is a gift
     that never ends.

        I Miss You So

        by Susan Polis Schutz

        Though you are not here
        wherever I go
        or whatever I do
        I see your face in my mind
        and I miss you so
        I miss telling you everything
        I miss showing you things
        I miss our eyes
        secretly giving each other confidence
        I miss your touch
        I miss our excitement together
        I miss everything we share
        I don't like missing you
        It is a very cold and lonely feeling
        I wish that I could be with you
        right now
        where the warmth of our love
        would melt the winter snows
        But since I can't be
        with you right now
        I will have to be content
        just dreaming about
        when we will be together again

The brightness of a full moon
Glittering in the ocean
You are there
And I am here
But thoughts of you
Bring me nearer

Do You Really Know
How Much You Mean to Me?

      Sometimes I wake up
      in the middle of the night
      shivering from fright
      feeling empty
      feeling nothing
      because I think about
      how it would be
      if you weren't here

      And then I wonder
      if you really know
      how very much
      you mean to me
      how incredible
      I think you are
      how you are
      a part of all my emotions
      how you are
      the deepest meaning in my life

      Please always know
      that I love you
      more than anything else in the world

      by Susan Polis Schutz



With witchcraft
you saved me
With love
you inspired me
Your strength
I feel lifting me
Your caring
so deepens
and now you touch me
and my daily sun
a raging star

Blessed is this magic
this wonder
Beloved is this alchemy
of the heart
My once common life
now holds
a precious soul

Celebrate Love

by Susan Polis Schutz

 I want to
      walk and feel the hot
      sand on my skin.
      I want to
run and have the misty breeze
blow through my hair.
I want to
swim and
have the waves
sweep me to the shore.
I want to
watch the bright red sun
fade into the ocean
and then I want to
join you
and help the stars
reach the sky
as we create a sunburst.

I want to
warm the entire dark land
with our fire
I want to
hold on to you tightly while I sleep
and dream about the dancing clouds
and then I want to
join you again
and wake up
the entire land
with our screams
I want to help
the sun rise
as we celebrate
another beautiful

When I met you,
I wasn't planning on falling in love.
I wasn't planning
on feeling so attracted to someone,
but you awakened
feelings inside of me
that I'd forgotten existed.

When I met you,
I didn't realize
how much our love would grow --
that the attraction
that first brought
us together
would reach beyond passion
to the comfort of knowing
I have someone very special,
someone who is
not only my lover
but my close friend.

When I met you,
I had no idea
where our relationship
would lead us,
how beautiful you would
make my world.
But now I know
without a doubt.....
the luckiest day of my life
was the day that I met you.

"i carry your heart with me"
by e. e. cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it
(anywhere i go you go, my dear;
and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)


With these words,
You touched my heart
You touched my soul
In you
I've found friendship
I've found happiness...
In you

Whether we're together
Or miles and miles apart
You're with me always
You're a part of me...
I'm yours

Beautiful memories
Fun times, sad times
Whatever the mood
Sharing, caring...

You touched my heart
You touched my soul
I'll always be true
I'll always be yours...
I love you

      I Love You

      When we first met
      I held back so much
      afraid to show my deepest feelings

      As I got to know you better
      your gentleness and honesty
      encouraged me to open up
      and I started a trust
      in you that I never had
      with anyone else

      Once I started to express
      my feelings
      I realized that
      this is the only way
      to have a relationship

      It is such a
      wonderful feeling
      to let myself
      be completely known to you

      Thank you
      so much
      for showing me
      what two people can
      share together

      I look forward to
      spending many beautiful
      times with you

      by Susan Polis Schutz

Love, peace, abundance, and joy.........
