“I do not love you for the way you dress, though you do look so lovely tonight.

And I do not love you for the things you know, though I’ve always admired your mind.

And I do not love you for the way I feel, that first moment you walk through the door, I love you for all of this and so much more.

And all I know is you’re the part of me that keeps me strong. What I want is for us to face forever, standing up together, eyes turned towards the heavens, arm in arm.”
