To my husband -
"Love is like a friendship caught on fire: In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable." --Bruce Lee
Today we have been married nine years. Nine years ago, a couple of crazy in love kids pulled the ultimate April fool's prank and jumped feet first into this thing called marriage. As our anniversary has drawn closer, I've been thinking a lot about our relationship. I like to think that that every couple feels like they share something special and unique, something that is exclusive to them. I'm no exception, I've always felt that we have something very special. But, it's been in the last few years that I have come to realize just how special and unique our marriage is.
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage." --Lao Tzu
I cannot fully express how lucky I feel to have you as my husband, my partner, my lover, my best friend. I cannot fully express how grateful I am that we love and trust so easily. I cannot fully express how amazing it is to me that we always strive to build each other up and support each other no matter the endeavour. I cannot full express this things because words are really too little for all that I feel. But I can try.
"You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly." --Sam Keen
I am still in love with you, madly..wildly. You are the only person that sees the real me, all of me..the pretty and the ugly, and loves me anyway. I love the crinkles around your eyes and how they deepen when you smile. I love how you can fix anything with a hug. I love how we know each others boundaries. I love how we never speak unkindly to each other, and how we can fight in silence. I love that I can trust you completely, I know that you will catch me when I fall. I love how you make me laugh until I am gasping for breath. I love knowing that you are simply a good person with a pure heart. I love that you are hard working and selfless. I love that you love Metallica so much. I love going to sleep with you by my side every night and smelling your neck every morning.
"Paradise is always where love dwells." --Jean Paul F. Richter
I love your touch, I love your kiss. And even now, I still want one more touch, one more kiss, and one more I love you. It's never enough and I don't think it ever will be. Thank you for being the man I need you to be, the man I want you to be. Thank you for being my love, my heart, my best friend, my everything.
"You're nothing short of my everything." --Ralph Block
I love you.
