- A letter to the one I love. By Arlene Brown
it is true, I donít always tell you just how much I love you. Just how
much you mean to me and that I would be completely lost without you.
was a time in my life when my very existence had little meaning. Where
everyday was literally just sun up and sun down. I walked beside my
life instead of with it. Then I met you and everything changed.
know I am a better person for having met you. I know that my life would
be meaningless without you. And I know that I donít always tell you
enough just how much I love you.
Let this gift be a reminder of my love for you, my devotion to you and a symbol of the truth of our being together.
- The Angels around us. By Arlene Brown
will never know just how precious you are to me. You were there for me
when no one else was. You never abandoned me. You stayed with me until
I regained my strength in myself and in others. You showed me that even
though some days were cloudy, that the sun was still shining. You told
me it was just beyond those heavy clouds. And if I really concentrated,
I could see the good all around me even though at times it was just
beyond my senses.
There will never be enough words to
express to you my appreciation for all that you have done. Because of
you I choose to be whole once again. To spread my wings and soar above
the clouds. To be part of life and reawaken all of my senses. I now
know that there really are angels amongst us and you are surely mine.
- If I close my eyes. By Arlene Brown
I close my eyes real tight, I can still see you, just standing there,
giving me that sweet smile of yours. You know the one. That incredible
smile of yours, that melted my heart and captured my soul.
I close my eyes real tight, I can remember what it was like kissing you
for the first time. The way your soft lips lay against mine. I can
still remember how tender your lips were as I brushed against them with
If I close my eyes real tight, I can still
remember the first time I touched you. How the soft caress of your
hands made my body ache for your very being. To be one with you.
I close my eyes real tight, I can still remember the first time I said
that I loved you. I can still smell the perfume in the air. I remember
where we were, and what we did after.
If I close my eyes
real tight I can imagine what it would be like to live the rest of my
life with you. To go to bed with you in the evening and awake with you
in the morning.
I love you and will forever.
- Sail away with me. By Arlene Brown
at night I think of you. When I awake, the morning is new with all the
promises a new day brings. I long to be with you, to touch you, to be
the one you desire.
Say you will sail away with me, to that far off land, the one that holds the promises of today and the dreams of tomorrow.
I await your reply.
- To a great father. By Arlene Brown
There are no words to fully express just how instrumental you have been in my life.
I was small you let me explore my new little world and all it had to
offer. Although I felt free to be adventurous I knew you were keeping a
close eye on me. Making sure I didn't get into harms way. You taught me
right from wrong. I always felt protected and loved.
grew older you taught me how to be a good person, to look after myself
and others. And yes, sometimes we didn't agree but somehow I knew that
was OK too. I learned we could have differences yet still love one
On this Father's Day I wanted to let you know that I love you very much. And that you are such an important part of my life.
- Happy Birthday! By Arlene Brown
(This letter is sent with celebration confetti in the bottle instead of rose petals)
am sending you this birthday greeting to let you know that even though
I cannot be with you on your special day, that I am thinking about you
and really wish I could be with you.
I have always felt that
in this fast paced, hectic world we live in that if you manage to have
just a few true friends you can count on that you are truly blessed.
That is the way I feel about you. I am so happy we are friends, and that we can share life's ups and downs together.
And so on your special day, just know I am thinking of you and hope you have a wonderful day of celebration.
- Marriage Proposal. By Arlene Brown
day I am so thankful that I have found you. You make my life so
complete. Late at night, when I am just about to go to sleep I think
about where we began and how far we have come. How much we have grown
independently and together as a couple.
I want every day to be joyful, loving and passionate and there is only one person that can join me in life's incredible journey.
That person is you.
Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?
- Shakespeare's Sonnet 18
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
- For You, My Love. By Arlene Brown
Upon the hills of morning dew,
Beauty is what I see in you.
Soft and delightful to my touch,
I never knew I could love so much.
The secret whispers in the night,
your desire is revealed in my sight.
Savoring my desire... its true anticipation,
Having been transformed, a true re-creation
I am within you and there I shall stay,
Through mighty highs and distant frays.
Our love is forever and desire will run,
For now and forever till the well torn sun.
- I Love You. By Arlene Brown
love you. Those three words are very special words to me. Before I met
you I didn't truly understand what these words really meant. Those
three words symbolize not only my love for you but my devotion and
fidelity to the one and only person I have ever truly loved. And that
Never have three words meant so much to me because they say what my heart already knows and what I feel deep in my soul.
I love you.
Today, Tomorrow and Always
- One More Day. By Arlene Brown
day we met was the most important day in my life, and now it is just a
memory. A fragment of what could have been. We needed one more day, one
more chance to see this through. Please consider this as you go about
life's journey. Consider what we had at the beginning and what evolved
and what might have been if we had one more day.
One more day is all that we needed, all that I wanted and all that I dreamed of.
One more day and I would have been able to show you what love is all about.
One more day and I would have shown you I can do things differently, be what you need and what you desire.
One more day and time would have stood still to allow us to catch up to it so we didn't lose one minute of each other.
One more day and we would have looked into each others eyes and realized this is worth saving.
One more day and I could have said all the things I wasn't able to.
Like I love you, I need you and I don't want to lose you.
Will you do me the honor of allowing us one more day?
I await your reply.
- The Key To My Heart. By Arlene Brown
didn't know I could, or if I ever would give my heart to another again.
I lost my zest for living, my very essence of being, until I met you.
heart had been hurt by another. I felt as if I could never trust anyone
again. Something told me I should open myself up, if just in the
smallest of ways to you.
I am glad I listened to that small inner voice. I never knew what true love was until I met you.
It took time and patience and a lot of love, but you never wavered. You have become my strength and my reason for loving again.
Today I give to you the Key To My Heart, in thought and with this gift as a reminder of my feelings for you.
Whatever the future holds for us for better or worse you now hold the Key To My Heart and my love that goes with it.
I Love You ~ Always and Forever

importantly I wanted you to know that this special feeling I have for
you isn't just celebrated this one day a year for me. This is a

And so on this very special day of celebration I send to you this special letter and gift for you to hold dear to your heart.

- Dear Valentine. By Arlene Brown
Will you be mine??
A Secret Admirer
- You Are So Special. By Arlene Brown
I saw this gift and I thought of you.
I have trouble sometimes adequately expressing my affection for you, it
doesn't mean that I don't care or that I don't want to be near you
because I do.
My hands get all sweaty, my heart skips a beat and my knees get weak. I stumble over words that for most come fluently.
Silly isn't it?
Perhaps, but I feel like a teenager again. All swept up in the moment and it feels great!
I really look forward to our times together and can't wait to see what the future holds for us.
- You Can Count On Me. By Arlene Brown
As time goes by I realize more and more just how very special you are.
do love you, and always will. I will always be there for you. Through
the highs and lows you can count on me. I will not let you down, ever.
Best friends sometimes turn into lovers and sometimes lovers become best friends, you are all that and more to me.
My very best friend, my lover, my confidant and my heart.
never knew this is what a true and honest relationship was like until
we brought our two lives together and joined our hearts together in
this thing called love.
I am a better person for having met
you, a better person for the love you have unselfishly shared, and a
better person for what you have taught me.
I love you and always will.
- As Time Goes By. By Arlene Brown
As time has gone by I simply cannot believe how much our love has grown.
How much we have grown as a couple, and how much we have grown independently.
That is the beauty of this relationship. You have allowed me to grow as a person.
Because of that I have been able to help our relationship grow and take on the
many challenges we have faced. Because there is strength in unity and strength in
our love for each other.
We have overcome every obstacle thrown in our way.
We have climbed the highest highs, and cried over the lowest lows.
All I know is that there is not another person in this world I would rather be with.
Thank you for being you, thank you for loving me with all of my faults.
I Love you and always will.
Happy Anniversary my love.
- To a Very Special Mom. By Arlene Brown
When I was small you let me explore my new little world and all it had to offer.
Although I felt free to be adventurous I knew you were keeping a close eye on me.
Making sure I didn't get into harms way. You taught me right from wrong. I always
felt protected and loved.
When I grew older you taught me how to be a good person, to look after myself and
others. And yes, sometimes we didn't agree but somehow I knew that was OK too. I
learned we could have differences yet still love one another.
On this Mother's Day I wanted to let you know that I love you very much. And that
you are such an important part of my life.
- Dear Mom, I Love You! By Arlene Brown
On this special day I wanted to let you know that I love and appreciate you so very
much. Not just for the day to day friendship we have but for the time you have given
me all throughout my life.
When I was young I do not think I fully appreciated what a sacrifice, on so many
different levels being a Mom is.
You have sacrificed and loved me for all of these years, sometimes without getting
the recognition you truly deserve.
On this day know that I love you more than words can say and you will always be a
part of my life wherever I may roam.
- Thank you for all that you have taught me. By Arlene Brown
I cannot begin to thank you for all of the wonderful things you have done for me over
the years. When I was small you wiped away my tears and celebrated my achievements.
You were always there, encouraging me to take my first steps, my first words and holding
my hand and comforting me through my first mistakes.
As I grew you were still with me. Through school and all of its highs and lows. Through
my teenage years you guided me through some difficult times. Sometimes I didn't want you
there, but you let me know that was OK too. I needed to find my own way. But I knew you
were never far behind. Looking out for me. Perhaps I didn't appreciate it then, I thought
I knew it all. But you knew that too! And let me learn life's lessons.
You have taught me to be a better person, to give and not always take.
Now that I have grown I want you to know that all those "firsts", when you were there
meant so much to me. I don't know how I would have been able to get where I am today without you.
Have a very happy Mother's Day.
I Love You
- The years have passed. By Arlene Brown
The years have passed, and so many things have changed in our lives.
But one thing remains constant, and that is my love for you.
Sure, we have had our highs and lows but if I had to do it all over again I
would have only changed one thing. I would have married you sooner.
Every moment we have shared together we cultivated and nurtured our relationship.
We have cherished special moments, and the future only holds a multitude of
unopened doors for us to explore. And the realization that while we live a union
of unconditional love every day, we are also creating a legacy of love for the
people close to us to remember long after we are gone.
I love you and always will.
- Can't wait to see you again. By Arlene Brown
In this thing called "life" with all its ups and downs I never thought I would start as I began...
In wonder of all around me, with each new day an adventure.
These days I lay at night and smile in wonder of you
I close my eyes and I try to recall each new step I took when I was
young. I feel at peace, for now, those earliest of steps are revealed
once again with each new step I take with you.
those summer days of long ago where playing, running and chasing
butterflies, laughing at the silliest of things encircled my life.
And now here I am with you. Chasing life's new wonders with you, my new best friend.
Isn't it strange that just when I thought my zest for new adventures was over, that it really has just begun.
I thought I had all that I was allowed, all that life was going to give me.
I am so delighted I have started where I began. Everything seems new, exciting and wonderful.
I can't wait to see you again.
