The woman we fell in love with as a baby;
The woman who picked us up when we fell;
The woman who wiped our tears when we were hurt;
The woman who gave us that hug that made us feel better any band-aid ever could;
The woman who talked us through that time, our first crush broke our heart.
They are Our Best Friends, Our Partners, and Our Lovers
The woman who inspired us to reach for greater heights;
The woman who with their first kiss captured our heart;
The woman who held our hand and told us it would be alright in times of doubt;
The woman who stood beside and believed in us when no one else would;
The woman who makes our house our home
Women are our rock from birth till death.
Thank goodness for Women
It’s been a long road and along the way I have had many experiences that have shaped the very essence of who I am. But it wasn’t until you walked into my life that I could truly say for the first time I saw clearly what my life was meant for. Today I stand here with you ready to walk a new path in my life. As with any path there will be unknowns and obstacles ahead. But knowing you will be walking the path with me I have no fear, because I have no doubt our love build on trust and mutual respect will carry us through any obstacle we may face.
I promise you that you will always be:
My partner who I walk beside the rest of your life.
My best friend who I will not only listen to but hear
My soulmate who my heart will always beat in unison with.
I say to the world that when I:
Hold your hand.
Hear your voice,
See your smile,
Look into your eyes,
I know a love that I did not think was possible.
It is true that when we are apart I count the minutes until I see you again, until I can hold you in my arms again. Why? Because you and only you:
Bring me happiness
Have awaken my soul
Have given me strength
Are my partner
Are my best friend
Are my soul mate
Are my everything
We must have said those three little words to each other a thousand times and I won’t speak for you but those words when spoken by you to me are so powerful they awaken my deepest emotions.
I’ve often wondered how is it that the sound of three little words can bring me so much happiness? Then it hit me, it’s when I hear you say them I know you mean it.
When I look back at past relationships I realize that when others said I love you they really didn’t mean it? When they said those words, it was the sound of their voice, nothing more nothing less. It was just a sound, a vibration that broadcast itself as a mechanical wave of pressure and displacement through air. Now that’s not romantic and it’s certainly not something I should have given my heart away to.
But with you I love you is not just the utterance of words it’s your actions that bring those words to life. Like when we trade smiles across a room. When you instinctively grab for my hand in a crowd. That look in your eye when you wake up beside me each morning; Small unconscious actions that likely go unnoticed to everyone else but me. Actions that say I love you without any words, no sound passing through the air. I hope my actions say the same to you because there is no doubt in my heart that I love you
They say the Law of Attraction uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. If that’s true, then you and I are the result of that law.
For the longest time I dreamed about finding someone with not only your physical beauty but also the quality that truly captures my heart and mind your brilliant intellect. It was obvious from the start that I had been dreaming about you all along.
Dreaming that once I found you we would begin a relationship so passionate everyone around us would feel the heat it generates. And they do!
Dreaming that we would work together to conquer any obstacles in the way of our happiness. And we do!
Dreaming that we would connect on such a level all we needed to do was look at each other and know what the other was thinking. And we do!
I believed in you before I even knew you, you are everything I ever dreamed about. So, you know what? This law of attraction thing must be real, because here you are.
I looked up from my laptop across the living room at you, your head buried in your laptop. Once again, we were together physically in the same room but mentally and emotionally we may as well have been on different continents. What happened to us? Once our passion was so strong all we could do was think about each other. Lately tough we were simply going through the motions.
We had become more committed to our work than we were too each other. In the chase for professional and monetary success we forgot that feeling we had when all we had was each other. The anticipation of seeing each other’s smile. The warmth of being in each other presence. The safety of being in each other’s embrace and the feel of our lips pressed against each other’s. We had convinced ourselves that our happiness could be found in a number and that through hard work we would achieve that number and have everything we wanted in life. Everything that was except what truly made us happy, we forgot about each other.
So, at that moment I put down my work and walked across the living room and pushed your laptop aside. Before you could protest I pulled you close and kissed you like I hadn’t kissed you in a long time. Every bit of passion I had kept hidden from you over the years. Every time I had wanted to tell you how much I loved you but didn’t because I was too busy was all in that single kiss. A single kiss that joined two souls that once were inseparable back together.
You looked at me, a bit confused, and then asked where did that come from? But before I could respond you placed a finger on my lips to quiet me and said you don’t need to say it your kiss already did and yes, I missed us too.
From that day on we have never took each other for granted. We have never let work or the pursuit of money come between us. Sure, we still strived for professional success, but we made sure to keep that chase in perspective. Because after all my love for you is the biggest success of my life.
I’ve been hurt. But I must admit when I met you I was captivated by both your beauty and your mind. Even so I was afraid to give my heart to someone again and you told me you understood my trepidation. But you also said I shouldn’t give up on love and that you would be there for me when I was ready to try again. It was scary but I knew deep down that you were one I couldn’t let get away so I took a chance and gave you my heart and every day since then you’ve shown me that I made the right decision
I love the way we talk
I love the way we listen to each other
I love that we never judge one another
I love that when we disagree we still respect each other
I love how for no reason at all we’ll complement each other
I love how when one of us is down the other one carries the load no questions asked
I love how committed we are to each other
I love how we work together to get through our rough patches
Most importantly I love you. I’ve given you the keys to my heart and I’m lucky I didn’t give up on love or else we would never have been, and my heart would never have known what true love really was.
We’ve hit a few bumps in the road lately haven’t we? People are talking, you don’t have to pretend I know you’ve heard it, because I’ve heard it to. It seems people are relishing our troubles.
I knew it.
It was only a matter of time.
They were never meant to be together.
That’s just some of the things they’re saying.
They say that there are others out there who would be better for us. But I know, and I suspect you do as well that no one could ever have as big a place in their heart as we do for each other.
They tell us to focus on the rocky times and ask ourselves is it all worth it. But I see in your eyes, they betray you, and I suspect you see it mine as well the love that still burns in our hearts for each other.
They tell us these things I believe, and I suspect you do as well because deep down they are jealous of what we have.
A passion for each other that is truly uncontrollable.
A love for each other that is truly special
A mental connection so powerful that words are not required to express our feelings for one another
We were meant to be together
We are stronger as us than as you and me
So, let them talk, because I know, and I suspect you do as well that together there is nothing we can’t overcome.
Do YOU REMEMBER THE TIME you came into my life and stole my heart LIKE A SMOOTH CRIMINAL? I smiled and asked your name. You smiled back and said DIRTY DIANA. Well, well that’s a bit unusual I thought but so were you. There was no doubt that you were OFF THE WALL and knew I CAN’t LET HER GET AWAY. So, despite my heart beating a mile a minute I played it cool. I’ve seen you around Dirty Diana and I have to say you are a PRETTY YOUNG THING but I suspect you just might be DANGEROUS. You laughed and said I can be when I want to, but that just ANOTHER PART OF ME. Most of the time I’m really quite harmless. Than you said I’ve seen you around too your name’s BEN right and I know YOU ARE NOT ALONE. What’s her name? BILLIE JEAN right. She’s the one who ROCK WITH YOU? Her? No, she’s old news SHE’S OUT OF MY LIFE now. Then I took a leap of faith and put it all out there. Look I’m not going play games with you it’s as easy as ABC it’s THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL I just want to SCREAM that SHE’S DRIVES ME WILD. You blushed and said so you WANNA BE STARTING SOMETHING with me huh? I CAN’T HELP IT I REPLIED you are BAD. Well you said I just might feel the same way. Then you hesitated for a second before looking at me and saying who am I kidding take my hand CAN YOU FEEL IT I’m trembling. THIS IS IT I thought THE GIRL IS MINE. So, right there and without hesitation I said GIRL DON’T TAKE YOUR LOVE FROM ME and to this day you haven’t.
