Dearest Faithful Companion,
I know I haven’t known you all that long. At least not long enough to feel about you the way I do. I mean it’s been less than a year since I made your acquaintance but I can’t seem to give you up. I heart you. In fact, as days go by, I seem to want you more and more. The pleasure you give me and the feelings you elicit from me seem almost illicit. Our relationship can seem so coy and innocent one moment and so tawdry the next.
I long to see your countenance brighten and I savor the times we can spend alone. Any time I get to spend with you brings me great joy. I hate that lately we seem to have to sneak around and find a few minutes alone time at the doctor’s office or in my car or even the few stolen moments when whoever I am with has to make a call or use the bathroom. I always try to take advantage of those precious stolen moments. In fact, I’m surprised we haven’t gotten caught yet. Surely someday soon someone is going to walk in at an inopportune time and catch us together.
But I promise you this, even if we do get caught, I won’t give you up. I will try to be discreet and not wear out your welcome. I will try to make it so others aren’t jealous of our special relationship. But I can’t help it. No one can make me use my imagination like you can in so many ways. No one keeps me more on edge or feeling so vital as you. You have the ability to make me laugh like a fool or cry like a baby and send shivers down my spine with a few short words.
Sure your predecessor had his points and he made me happy and still makes me happy at times, but, you have so many advantages over him. Your size astounds me. You may be compact but you pack a whallop. Your strength and capacity make me wonder how you do it. Your spark ignites me. You light
up my world even on the darkest nights. It makes me wonder how I got along without you. I don’t think I ever can again.
How did I settle for your predecessor for so long? I guess I didn’t know what I missing. Now that I do, I will continue to feed you as you feed the depths of my soul with your comforting words.
I love you. Please never leave me.
