They say what’s meant for you can never miss you



Perhaps I believed in that in the traditional sense, then you came into my life,

not once but twice, the second time making me a whole hearted believer



I remember our first date like it was yesterday



My heart knew from the very first moment it was much more,

life just needed to catch up



I remember learning that we came from similar families, and being impressed that you earned your way in the world



You are that someone. It’s always been you. When I look at you,

I see the manifestation of everything I’ve ever dreamed of, and everything.

I’ve ever prayed for, staring right back at me.

In you I found someone who supports me, who inspires me, who respects and honors me.



Exactly 1 thousand three hundred and sixty-six days ago,

you were on your way to meet me at a cabin upstate as I waited for you, I wrote in my journal:

I pray that all of these times it didn’t work out were for good reason.

That it was all a part of God’s plan to send me someone so incredible, that when I finally met him, I would know.

I would know to love him wholly. I would know not to look for something better.

I would know how lucky I was. I would know that the search was finally over



You bring out the absolute best in me, and you help me see the parts of me that I can’t always see.

You have changed my life for the better in every way



You are my calm and my steady place.



There is an undeniable kindness about you,

and how you care for those you love is one of my favorite things about you



I vow to make you laugh, to inspire you, to support you, to cheer you on, to assure you when you feel uncertain,

and to love you with my whole heart, so long as we both shall live



We both know how indecisive I can be, but one thing I know with complete certainty is,

you are the single greatest thing that has ever happened to me



Thank you for never making me feel like I'm too much, and for embracing and accepting me, for me



I vow that all of my future seconds are yours
