You’re still the One I want

2 Nov

“Looks like we made it, look how far we’ve come my baby. We mighta took the long way, we knew we’d get there someday. They said, “I bet they’ll never make it” but just look at us holding on, we’re still together still going strong. You’re still the one I run to, the one that I belong to. You’re still the one I want for life! You’re still the one that I love, the only one I dream of, you’re still the one I kiss good night. Ain’t nothin’ better, we beat the odds together.”

We will be married for six wonderful years in December and I honestly cannot believe how fast time has flown by. I wouldn’t change a thing about you for all the money in the world – you are the “yin” to my “yang”. This is just my little way of saying that I love you to the sky and back again in the midst of life and all it throws at us. I have never felt such profound peace, as when I said “I do”. Everything was perfect about that day, I had no reservations – I knew you were the man for me. Where you lead, I will follow and I will endeavour to do only good to you as long as there is breath within me. I will always choose you.

As I lay in bed next to you the other night, it occurred to me (again) how grateful I am to have you in my life and that I get to share my journey with you. You are such a good man at the core of who you are. There are few people I know that have a heart as big as yours, you would give your last to a stranger if you could, so going into business is not for you babe, you’d be flat broke or in a ton of debt. You love our son infinitely and I wish that he would let you take care of him more (I’m referring to night-duty here ONLY). You’re so good with him, loving and affectionate, and I love watching you two interact. My favorite picture of you with Samuel is on a Saturday morning when he’s fallen asleep on your chest, it melts my heart and makes me weak in the knees. As a teacher, you are invaluable to the staff and your school. Those kids are like your own in the way you guide them, not just in the classroom but with issues close to their hearts.

You are smart, funny, loving, stubborn and sometimes off the cuff but I love you! All of you! Everything about you! I knew that I wanted a man of your caliber to father my children. So cheers to you babe and the rest of our wonderful life together.
