You and Me
To: You

This is the beginning of something beautiful. It appears to be a budding collaboration and it is all about you and me. It started a couple of years ago when I was thinking about you. I caught myself wondering if you thought at all about me. I know sometimes you think it’s all about me and sometimes all I think about is you. Let me propose something to you. What if you started to think of me first and then I will try to think of you?

You are near me.

You are far from me.

Do you remember me?

Will you sit by me?

I love you.

Let me feel you.

Help me understand you.

You said that to me.

You did this to me.

Do you want to come with me?

You love me.

You hate me.

Do you understand me?

Let me love you.

I am hopeful that this relationship will work out between you and me. You really are just right for me. Thank you.
