Because Of You

When one sees
but never saw,
touches,
but never feels,
hears,
but only sound,
one knows life,
but doesn't live.
But when one loves,
it's with his soul he sees,
his heart he touches,
and his life he hears.
It's all the glory,
and the sorrow,
the joy's,
and the pain,
the fullness of everything
that has ever been.
I see,
I feel,
and I hear,
wonders beyond all I ever dreamed,
all I could ever want,
all I could ever need
and I love,
as I have never loved before…
because of you.

JamesB~
This is just beautiful.
Only a heart that has touched, felt, seen and known love ... could pen these thoughts.
Wonderfully done, my friend.

"the fullness of everything
that has ever been."

Indeed, love has a way of opening our eyes, minds and hearts. Lovely writing.
