H. Ray Davis


My dear, I am in debt to you. 

For the times I have looked at you, my eyes are filled with joy. 

I owe you. For the sweetness of the things you have spoken to me are like drops of honey melting on my tongue.

I am in debt to you. For the brief times I have held you I have lived a lifetime of love. 

I owe you. For all of the nights I have dreamed of our next meeting. 

I live with the constant aching of feeling my hand on your face and the hope of a look of contentment in your eyes.

I am sure I will live my life a debtor. How could I ever repay the happiness you have given back to me? 

Before you my smile was only a reflex, but now a permanent thing that glows inside of me. 

My love, I am in debt to you.

    Thank you. These letters are a collection of things left unsaid to the woman I’ve created in my mind, but I’m glad someone likes them.
