I Love You/Profession of Love Love Letter
Iím sorry Iíve taken so long to reply to your
letter. I know I promised I would write more often, but once the
plane landed in Dublin and I was finally away from everything back
home, I grasped how totally Mary broke my heart. It felt like there
was nothing but splinters on the left side of my ribcage, instead of

But Delilah, youíre like a ray of light in my life.
Please be with me.
