I Wish I Could

I Wish I Could

October 31, 2016

Dear You,

You came into my life in a way I have never imagined. You came during those moments that I said to myself, “I don’t want to love anymore”. I have never thought that my feelings for you would escalate to this level. As much as I would like to hide and fight it, here I am, writing this letter.

I have never thought that you will become the person I would cherish, I would care about, I would miss, and I would love. You are that person who puts a smile on my face; that person who inspires and motivates me after a tiring day at work and after a stressful week in school. You make me always look forward to every picture that we will take and to every dinner and every coffee that we will have.

You are that person who makes me dream about a future and makes me want to become a better person each passing day. You are that person whom I want to share my stories with. That person I want to have late night talks about everything that we ever think about. You are that person who makes me wish to have an extension for the 24 hours I have in a day.

You are that special person in my life that I want to know better. I want to know the things that make you sad, smile, happy, angry, cry, and crazy. I want to know your favorite color, food, drinks, place, hobby, etc. I want to know the books that you are reading, the movies you are watching, the songs that you are singing, the things that you are doing.

I want to know you deeper. I want to master how to pacify you when you are angry, how to deal with you when you go crazy, and how to make you happy when you are sad.

I want to let you know that I will always be here for you whenever you need someone to go crazy with, when you need someone to hang out, someone to eat with you, travel with you, or just sit with you doing nothing. I just want to take care of you if you would allow me to.

I don’t want to lose you because I’m ready to love you whatever it takes.


P.S. I wish I could.

  1. Beautiful letter with such depth of feeling… Love the image of the band casting a heart shadow, with the backdrop of that particular scripture. I’ll have to check out more of your work when I can. 🙂 Oh and thank you for the follow.

    1. Thank you so much. 🙂

  2. Love this. A greater love story was never told.

    1. I am Rumpydog on this one. Not that these stories could possibly exist in this crazy world.

  3. Lovely photography and poetry. I read several and couldn’t help thinking of God the whole time, not sure if you meant it that way or if toward a human beloved, but lovely words nonetheless. Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi joel! 🙂 Thank you. Yes I mean it for a person. But it could be both. Showcasing the lovely works and wonders of Jesus Christ. 🙂

      1. Great stuff! She’s a blessed gal to have words like that spoken over her 😉 and yes, Jesus makes lovely things doesn’t he?! Bless you!

        1. Yes He is! brother! 🙂 Bless you too.

  4. Thanks for following my blog on diet, exercise and living past 100. I am enjoying my visit to yours. Good luck!

    1. Thanks also.. 🙂 Will be visiting your blog later. 😀

  5. This is a testimonial. Quite. But the way it ends; “I wish I could.”
    I don’t know what to make of this testimonial.
    Is it one prepared in anticipation of the entrance into your life of such a entity?
    Or is it as we are led to believe a ongoing romance, as we read it?
    Sorry for this intrusion.

    1. It ended with a statement and actually entitled “I wish I could” because all of the things written will not happen anymore because of some personal reasons. It means I’m wishing I could do all the things I have written in the letter but unfortunately I cannot.

      1. Thanking you for making sense out of all the confusion my head created. Also I see now why it is so powerful, full of descriptive yearning which could be romantically susceptible to interpretation, subject to preferential values.
        I, of course am not privy to the circumstances, but nonetheless if this wish has deeper routes than the artistic voiced (I wish for a balance), then my heart is broken over this matter. I suppose due to my age the wish for romance is very subdued, miniscule even, but I know of ages where it can be a profound desire. It is for this reason that I feel for you. Sympathize. But so beautiful is this piece. God bless you for it. His strength is made strong in weakness for the stifling of our carnal Adamic might is the curtailing which enables His Spirit to fill the more the Adamic Cavity. Power, yes a power most will never experience is yours and not for discounting.
        Much love; MAO

        1. Thanks Miguel! 🙂 God bless you too.
