VOF Love Letter to my Mentor

Dear Mentor:
Although I do not know you, I do know love. So I will tell you why, even though I do not know who you are, I love you.
Love is nurturing, like we will surely be to each other in our journey through this stage.
Love is caring, as in the way I promise to care for you from the moment we begin.
Love is tender, as I know you will be when you need to guide me through my mistakes.
But what would love be without the passion, the spark, the lust for more? I promise, my dear mentor, to show all this in my writing so that everyone can feel my feelings, dance my dances and share my hush moments vividly.
My kind of love for you, as you will soon find out, is hectic and full of laughter, because when I get nervous I prefer to laugh and continue than to stop and cry. Searching for the answers, looking for truth, standing by the side of the ones who need me, that is where I wish to find the fountain of my inspiration, and in the ocean of our mutual love and understanding is where I hope to find the right path to the achievement of my best writer self.
For all of these and much, much more, I want to tell you my dear mentor, you are very welcome to join me and lead me in the right direction. I promise to not let you down and make every assignment of this stage, a memorable form of love.
