Right now as I stand here, you are the other half of me. The better half. Since I met you, you’ve been my third arm, my second heart, my second set of ears. But tonight, after we say I do, all that will change. The word other will no longer exist in our relationship’s vocabulary. Tonight, we will become one. Our hearts will beat in perfect unison, our eyes will blink at the same speed. For the rest of my life, when I wake up in the morning, your hair will be the first thing that I smell and your skin will be the first thing that my lips touch and kiss. And tonight, I’m giving you the key that unlocks every door inside of my body. From this moment, I promise to always defend you, and protect you, and give you my word that I will always do my very best to make you laugh, and to keep your cheeks sore from smiling so much. I’ll cook you breakfast and we’ll watch classic movies together. I’ll be an amazing father to our children one day. I’ll make sure that they know how much I love their mother, just like my dad showed me. We will travel around the world together, and we’re gonna watch thousands of sunsets together. We will grow old together, and watch each other’s hair turn grey. I promise you this: that I will always look at you the same, as I see you today. I’ll tell you every day for the rest of your life how gorgeous you are. Even when I’m 80 years old, I will still ask you to dance with me even when there’s no music in the room. I want to kiss you but I can’t yet.
My goal is to fill your days with happiness for the rest of our lives, so that when we’re old and grey and withered, we will still cuddle and kiss and think about the old days and smile, knowing that we have a love that makes the storybooks jealous. I wish there was another word for love, because the word is used too loosely these days. So I will say this: I look forward to being enamored, infatuated, smitten, and completely devoted to you for the rest of my life.
You are my dream...
