Life has a way of just surprising you when you least expect it.
You think you have an idea of how your life is going to go,
or what is going to happen – but you never really do.
When you came into my life, you got me to understand the meaning of life.
There’s a joy in my heart again that had been missing.
There’s excitement about life again that I thought I would never feel.
Your love gives me more and more strength with which to carry on my life.
Before you came along, I had accepted life as it was -- void of love, void of happiness
void of belonging.
I had accepted the darkness, and embraced loneliness.
If only I'd known that I would someday meet someone like you
Who gives me everything, would do anything for me, gives me all their love
I would have done anything and everything in my power to find you sooner.
But, now that I have found you -- now that my eyes are open.
Now that I can see you -- I don’t plan to let you go.
When I think of you -- I can't help but smile -- the joy overwhelms.
You have always made me feel good about being me
Even when I wasn't happy being ME.
You embraced me when I didn’t even want to embrace myself.
With you -- I just feel as though all of my wishes and dreams will finally come true.
I stand here this day to tell you I love you – and I feel so blessed to have you in my life.
As I stand here this day, I think of all the possibilities that await us.
I feel so hopeful about us and our future – and that we will all be a family.
I feel for the first time, I have found someone that I can count on.
I feel comfort in my soul because I feel as though you WILL always be there for me.
I want us to have a life in which we understand each other,
encourage each other, reassure each other, support each other,
and love each other forever and unconditionally.
I cherish you now and will cherish you through a lifetime of beautiful tomorrows.
I want you to know how pleased that you are a part of my life.
I love you today -- this day -- more than I did yesterday,
I will love you more tomorrow than I do today.
