One night, as the result of an intriguing and fun eConversation with a very special man whom Shanene had admired only from afar, she finally met him and was instantly captivated.
Their encounter, an all too brief yet intimate, revealing exchange, touched Shanene's heart and ignited a simple love for a complicated spirit.
I Crown You With My Heart is Shanene's sweet message of love poured out to this man. Although he knows her, he is unaware of how deeply he has moved her. It is Shanene's hope that someday he might recognize himself in her poetry and realize that, in her he has--as he described her when they first met--a "gentle, kind" and eternal friend.
