Here is something I wanted to share with you. There are probably several variations to this letter but this is the version that was given to me as part of a packet of inspirational stories and poems.

Dear Friend,

How are you? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends. I waited all day hoping you would want to talk with me, too. I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you and I waited. You never came. It hurt me but I still love you because I am your friend.

I saw you sleeping last night and longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight on your face and again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you! You awoke and rushed off to work. My tears were in the rain.

If you would only listen to me. I love you! I try to tell you in blue skies and in the quiet grass. I whisper it in leaves on the trees and breathe it in colors of flowers, shout it to you in the mountain streams, giving birds love songs to sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air with nature’s scents. My love for you is deeper than the ocean and bigger than the biggest need in your heart.

Ask me. Talk to me! Please don’t forget me! I have so much to share with you. I won’t hassle you any further. It is your decision. I have chosen you and I will wait. I love you!

Your Friend,
