"So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: Who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived, or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?" - Hunter S Tompson

Yes - This is love.
Yes, I know it is so, for this is not from below but from above - This is love.

Be I holding your hand as we walk on the sand, or six hundred miles apart, in my hands I hold your heart, for you have mine and never shall we part.

Fall we might - But still - The Light.
The light - that teaches us.
The light - that keeps us.
The light - to hold on to. 
The light - to belong to. 




these are a must. 

And these - The rest of my life I shall try
So there will always be -
You and I.

Yes - This is love.
Because the Son Of man hath loved first -
He loved you and I

Yes - This is Love.

Till the day I die. 

I Love You.

"... How dreary to be somebody-- How public like a frog;
To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"
-Emily Dickinson

This poem is so sweet (can you tell I like love poems?) and I love the personal aspect of it. This seems more lovey than "A Mushy Love Poem." Please keep writing; I love all of your poetry.

"il piu nell' uno," (according to Emerson, an Italian expression for beauty)

"Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality" ~Emily Dickinson

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain"
~Kahlil Gibran

Quite a heartfelt way to put such things; I did not find this to be too sentimental, as I usually do with poems of this nature. The certainty, the devotion, the raw honesty of it made me sure that the love which you are speaking of is both true and pure. I especially liked the bit about 'the light.' Well done!
