I give you my hand not to lead me, but to walk beside me. I choose you to be my support if I ever stumble, and to know that I’ll stand by you if you do.
I want you to tell me it’s okay if i make mistakes. I want you to assure me that it’s through these mistakes that I’ll learn, and so will you, as we all learn from each other and move on richer and wiser in experience.
I want you to see the faith deep within me. Look into my eyes to see that I believe in us—that we will achieve, conquer, overcome and succeed. I want you to tell me your eyes reflect the faith and sincerity you see in mine, for believing souls throw light in the dark and offer comfort in despair.
Respect me for who I am, for with respect comes value, and with value comes the desire to protect and care. So hold my hand and explore this adventure called life with me. Be my strength. I’ll be yours. Let’s agree to disagree and hold onto our views; we are individuals first, a couple later.
Let’s bloom to our fullest potential in this garden called life. Let’s stay strong for each other so neither of us hesitates to be risk-takers, to experience all the exciting moments along this journey.
So come, my love, fly with me. Take my hand, soar high with me.
