There is a mysterious power to your love,
Wholehearted, sophisticated, at times underestimated.
I wouldn't be as close to you if you didn't want me to be.
Almost 10 years ago You wouldn't have stayed on the phone for
An hour and a half, While I mumbled about how much I liked
you, and maybe we Should/ Could/ be Together as a couple/ if
you're into that... If you didn't want me to be.
You wouldn't have told your Dad on new years eve at midnight
At the table together celebrating, That we were marrying.
The night I tried to propose. By the way Rick-
One more drink that night I was so close, to asking I swear.
Tonight, we have a lot of amazing people here with us.
Thank you. I have the courage Tonight to say to you and to
family, and friends, promises I've made in secret, love that is
understood, in ways that won't take an hour and a half.
With the influence of your love.
Even if our memories fail us, I like to think somewhere outside
Of time. Under the stars of future and fantasy.
This more than a promise.
There will be an intimacy that will forever be felt afar.
I am not a believer in much.
I do believe, however:
No matter how we part, our love exists as different veins of
The same heart.
Writing this in secret, she might come home while I write this, ssshhh
