“I Let You into My Heart” (A Love Poem From Gratiana to My Husband on our 21st Anniversary, December 2010), 8/31/11 (post #7)


My life is blessed with the love of my life,
A man whom I adore, and who adores me–you.
You saw me as beautiful then, when we first met,
And in your eyes I am beautiful still—as you are 
          handsome in my eyes.

Your love has taught me many lessons:
Of patience, though you would eagerly say not,
Of humor and wit, two of your greatest gifts,
Of understanding, when no one else
         understands me but you,
Of faith in others, even when yours is tested,
Of honor, in always seeking to do right by others
          before you do right by yourself,
Of acceptance, because life’s balance scale may not
          always tip in your favor,
Of love, a simple, pure, unfettered, heartfelt happiness.


A million soul defining moments ago, you
         claimed me as your own.
From then til now–and forever beyond–your joy is my joy.
I truly began to live when you came into my life, 
Because, I let you into my heart, my love.

P. S.  Obviously, the photos are from 22-23 years ago.  But simply picture us as the same happy couple–just with a few more wrinkles around our eyes.  Ha!

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
