Letter to Madelene

Dear Madelene,

I love you. I cherish you. I desire you. I think you’re the most beautiful woman in the world. As the years go by, you seem to possess more beauty than ever. It’s not even your beauty; it’s your compassion for others, you’re warm heart, and your giving nature. It’s your love for God, and the way you treat others. You treat me like no one has ever treated me before. I have never been loved so much by someone, as I am by you. You make me feel special and always lift me up when I’m feeling down.

Do you know how much I love you? I know we say “I love you” often, but do you know my feelings behind those words? It’s much more than words can even express. I don't believe I was ever in love, until I met you. The connection I have with you is beyond anything I have ever experienced. On top of that, you’re my best friend. I can tell you absolutely anything that’s on my mind, without feeling as though you’re going to get upset or angry at me. Almost as if you totally figured out the human race---you mastered the human mind. You know that I’m only ‘me’; and satisfied with just that. You’re forgiving and understanding. You give without expectations and love unconditionally. You’re rare.

When I think about growing old together, I daydream about us sitting on a front porch somewhere on our little rocking chairs laughing our butts off, and still drinking our martinis. I dream about all the good times we’re going to have—even more than we have now. I look at you---and I see a happy future. I see family, friends and wonderful times shared together. I see ‘us’. I see holidays full of joy and laughter, and days spent on the beach lying next to one another not saying a word, yet saying so much.

Every morning before you go to work, you wake me up with a kiss. I love that. If you ever forget to kiss me before leaving—I’ll probably be depressed all day. You encourage me to do the things I’ve always wanted to do. You give me positive feedback and tell me honestly what your thoughts are. I love that about you.

Is it possible that each year I fall in love with you a little more? Some people say that the chemistry fades after time. I feel it gets stronger with each passing day. I have never loved you so much as I do right now. Maybe I don’t tell you this in depth like I should, but today I want to let you know what’s in my heart.

Your kisses still give me the butterflies as they did on our first date. To me, you’re a God send. I totally believe that God sent me one of his angels. Not only do I find you physically incredibly gorgeous, but your inner beauty makes it that much better. You’re the ‘whole package’. Sometimes I even wonder what you see in me; why you put up with me... I get scared thinking one day you may leave me. Then you reassure me with your love that we’re in this for the long haul. I call it more of a vacation. We always say to one another that it feels like we’re on vacation when we’re together—even if we’re home.

You are my home. You’re my heart and I will always love you and be ‘in love’ with you.

Thank you for letting me wake up to fresh roses this morning. You know red & white together are my favorite. You're thoughtfulness never ceases to amaze me. Happy Valentine's Day baby! I'll see you tonight!

tangerinibini said...

From an outsider's view, I have never seen two people soooo in love before! You give me hope for what's out there. Even the way you two look at each other is beautiful. Deb's totally in love with you Maddie! If you can't see that, you're blind girl! Happy Valentine's Day to my best girls!

Romeo Jensen said...

Now thats hawt (woot woot) wheres my damn video recorder :)

hey... I was listening to Paul Harvey today and I thought of you (dont judge... Im getting to the point)
evidently the place with the highest content of germs per square inch is....

the handles of a shopping cart!!!

just think... all those germs just swimming on the handle... people touching the handle... then touching the apples... the oranges... carrots... boxes of cereal... etc.

just thought I'd share :)

Mort said...

What a gorgeous couple you two are. Been reading up on your blog for a while now. I love your writing. Thanks for the entertaiment!!!

Happy Valentines Day!

CP said...

Dear Maddie,

Don't listen to Deb. I love you more than she ever could. Everytime she types your name, I get chills. Everytime I utter, "Oh no you di'in't!" I think of you, Madelene. I can't get your voice out of my head. Everytime I see someone washing their hands, I think of Deb...which naturally leads me to thinking of you. Everyday I read about you, I love you just a little bit more. Can I please come over and dirty the apartment? Deb will be so busy cleaning that she won't notice our mad monkey love.

Oh, forget it. You two are a match made in heaven. I can't compete.

But if she ever dumps you, you're MINE...ya hear???

Usted vive en mis sueños, Madelene. Y allí usted permanecerá.

Okay, so it's high school spanish, but it's the best I can conjure up without saying "See Maria go to the post office". That's really all I remember otherwise.


(Happy Valentine's Day to the most beautiful couple on and off the web).

The Bastard Son said...

To my love, Debbie
There are sooo many wonderful aspects about you, the list is endless. I am very fortunate to have such a talented, vibrant, sexy, sexy , and did I say sexy woman like you in my life. As I have said in the past, I feel as though I am on vacation, when I am with you, what a funny and magnificent time we have together! Through your eyes I see the world, and it is indeed a different and wondrous place to be. I feel as though, I just met you and I my heart and soul still quivers at the very thought of you. You are a very vivacious, loving person and you bring out the best in me. When I think of you, I think of the many photographs of our life together. Each one showing a wonderful expierience between us. Look at the photos, happy faces, true pictures of the soul, shown in a photo. I have told you many times, my love, you are a treasure. You most certainly are the most precious gem. You make me happy. I know you are the most thoughful and funniest woman ever. Also you make my heart race every time I am close to you and I know I'm a pain, but I can't help it, I am always going to invade your space. You have a heart that is very big for others and every time I watch you from afar, it is with a twinkle in my eye and a strong desire in my heart. I treasure every day with you and I am looking forward to what matters, every day and night with you, my love. I love you. Happy Valentines Day! Thank God for you.

~Deb said...

I love you more than anything on this earth!

kathi said...

Okay already...stop it, I've had a wonderful day and I don't want to end it with a bunch of tears. Dang, too late.
I love both of you.

Mike said...

joey♥ said...

Deadly Female said...

Deb, that was so beautiful. If ~S~ and I have a fraction of what you and Madelene have when we are finally together, then we will indeed be blessed xx

Casually Me said...

True love. I thought it was an Urban Legend, like the Yeti or talent and Woody Allen. You have it, aim to keep it, and probably will. God blessed both of you, now bless him back.

~Deb said...

Ahh! She's outa'the house...I can really talk now... (evil laugh)

Thanks guys! She cried when she read it---and then asked me,

"Ummm, how do I comment back?"

So I explained it to her and she was about to comment under MY id name! She's too cute.

Oh---CP----you had her hysterically laughing. She's yours.

And why am I the second favorite KATH????????????????????????????

Okee-dokieeeeee back to the psyche ward.

None said...

Happy Valentines Day Deb & Maddie! ( a day late ) Damn, woman I wish I could express my feelings in words like that! Sounds like you 2 found something very special within one another - not only love but a solid friendship - God bless you both :)

Mike said...

This was one of the sweetest posts ever Fraggle!!

(mutters....how can I compete with this?)


Leesa said...

I love that you said, "You are my home." I am going to steal that one!

Jon said...

You give me hope.

kathi said...

Well, my sweet deb, you're not going to believe this but...Marko and I are my favorite couple. Get in line...2nd isn't bad!

Love you

CP said...


*cabbage patchin' around my livin' room*

I get the Maddie, I get the Maddie...she isn't Debs now, cause Deb can't have her.

Moo ha ha!

You two are a fucking inspiration, you know that? All these years together and you are still like all about the lovefests. That's nauseating, in a really sexy sort of way. It kind of makes my loins tingle a bit.

No, wait...that was my cellphone on vibrate. But, really, you two have this ass-clenching kind of love that inspired me to come out of the closet on my blog (no, not like that you freaky lesbian dolls, I came out about THAT like 20 posts ago! *L*) I mean, show my pic with the hubby. Love like that should never be contained.

Thank you for reminding all of us what Valentines day is all about...

the poohnanny.

Er, no, I mean...the love.



~Deb said...

Punding: Thanks sweetie! That means a lot---and yes---it’s nice having your best friend as your lover too.

Mike: Awe………my pumkin’……….thank you!

Leesa: When I see her----it’s “home”. I’m sure you get that feeling with hubbie---seeing the connection you two have.

Jon: Believe me---there are rough patches….(but only on my side) *wink

Kathi: Okay okay okay! I’ll take second place! Damn it!

CP: You are one wacked out chick! I LOVE YOU! haha! I’m glad you ‘came out’ on your blog-----not the lesbionic sort of way---but the gorgeous couple out on display for all. Can I place my bidding now?

Poohnanny! Hahaha!!!! That is love---isn’t it?

Mavida Lesbiana said...

How beautiful!

Walking Contradiction said...

Oh my. That is the sweetest thing I have ever read. ANYONE who is against homosexuality should read this. This is the epitome of true love. Wow. I mean, you gave ME butterflies, and I mean that as a compliment. You both are extremely lucky to have found each other, as are my wife and I.
