Thank you. This is my thank you note for the best man in my life. I know it’s corny, and that is why I’m doing it. This man has changed me and my life more than I would ever, ever dream of and he deserves a trillion of million of billions (I’m not good at math) of thank you notes. I wish I could thank you more, and forever. You have made my life a complete disney dream, full of Chandlers and Eds, all within you. If you weren’t here, neither would I be.
I found a love for me, darling, I found you 1391 days ago, and my life changed then. I was scared – I’ve always been scared – but you said, hey, just dive right in and follow my lead. We took fate in our hands, and we jumped. You’ve held my hand ever since, and not once did you think about letting me go. Well, I have to say, I found a [boy] beautiful and sweet, and I never, ever even imagined, let alone, knew you were the someone waiting for me. We met at 20, can you imagine, finding your happy every after at 20? I didn’t want to believe it, ‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love, I didn’t even know who I was, Not knowing what IT was… BUT I decided, from that very first night you grabbed me and held me tight, I decided I will not give you up this time. And I haven’t. Even when I pushed you, being afraid of the future, of slowing you down, of limiting you, you held tight. You made me want to stay. And even telling you ‘I want to leave’, all I mean is: darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own, And in your eyes you’re holding mine. And when you look at me, late at night, in bed, Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms, and I know then, I just know, I will never let you go. Do you remember that summer night? Barefoot on the grass, watching the stars through your telescope, listening to our favorite song and I was freezing, you brought a blanket for us to cuddle in… Or that morning When [I] said [I] looked a mess, and you as always, whispered underneath [your] breath, But [I] heard it, I always do, ‘darling, you look perfect [today]. If I could ever explain how proud I am of you, how your achievements make me want to try harder and better… how your intelligence and persistence show me, every day, that we can make it. Well I found a [man], stronger than anyone I know, [he] shares my dreams, and makes me go after them. I hope you see how much you’ve done for me, I hope I show you enough of how much I am ‘me’ because of you. I hope that someday I’ll share with you all you’ve shared with me and now, in our home I found a love, I found you to carry more than just my secrets, to carry love, to carry children of our own. And even though we are still kids, but we’re so in love, we’re Fighting against all odds, against anything that stands our way, our love, we fight it. Together. And I know we’ll be alright this time. Baby, don’t ever be afraid, please, Darling, just hold my hand, I’ll be your girl, and you’ll be my man. I see my future in your eyes, I see you and I see us. I have faith in what I see, now I know, I have met an angel in person, I have met whom I am supposed to have faith in, believe in and support. And, hun, you look perfect tonight!
It’s a very poem-y, different text, but I really wanted to incorporate Ed Sheeran’s lyrics because we both know how much they mean to us.
I love you.
