I love you.I think I have always loved you. You’ve changed my life,for the better. You’re not just a beautiful woman. You’re a beautiful human being.I know I struggle with depression and anxiety…I know I’ve spent my life trying to be something amazing or something I can’t quite understand.But-with you.I become that man.
More than I ever thought possible.
You did that.
And I love you.
I love you.
I love,love love you.
You’re not just my best and closest friend.
You’re the love of my life. . .
And I’m standing here now
Because I want to grow old with you
I want to keep doing this
Because we are amazing together.
That’s what I was going to say
But I forgot …
They don’t tell you that part
Everything goes smoothly
Everything is scripted
In real life
You light 70 candles
It takes 25 minutes
And that’s longer than any shower
So it’s probably good that you didn’t wait for her to be in the shower
That plan would have failed epically
And in real life
Some of those candles die
And you panic
Thinking she will walk in to
70 dead candles
70 candles smell like Christmas
70 dead candles smell like sulphur and sweatshops…
In real life
She walks in
And you forget
Because you’re shaking
And you can’t breathe
And she is beautiful
And you think about everything …
The first day you saw her
The first time you kissed her
The night she was in the hospital
And you climbed in bed with her
You think about all of it.
The night she came over
In the middle of a thunderstorm
Because you had to see each other
And you stayed up watching
Buffy and Frasier
The list goes on…
Because it’s real
You fired her from her first job
It’s not scripted – I swear –
You think about all of these things
Seeing her for the first time again
And hitting on her
At the grocery store
Opening her breakfast cookies
And eating them
Her getting mad
Calling you an ass hole
But asking you to go to the circus
You giving her your key
After she has a car accident
You want her to be able to come over anytime-even if it’s just to sleep-
And her asking you nervously
If you want to move in together
And now here we are
She actually proposed three months ago
While we were on the couch
Watching Cary Grant films…
This just makes it official.
And 70 candles…
I was going to do it on a thursday
We were both off
I passed an accident on the way to pick up the ring.and another on the way home the next night. I didn’t want to wait.
I don’t believe in perfect timing
I believe in telling the people we love
What they mean to us
And taking care of them.
And I believe we are great together
And I believe I love you
Every day .
And then she comes home.
That’s the great part
it’s not scripted.
