“I promise to make your heart beat faster and to fill your stomach with butterflies even after thirty years of being together.
I promise to clean up all the scars and cuts that other women have put on it. I will bandage up the memories from broken promises and wasted tears. I won’t let the broken past that you rarely talk about weigh you down anymore. I will lift all of that weight off of you, so you don’t have to be haunted anymore. And I promise to love your new heart just as much as the one that was full of ghosts.”
