i knew you were the one when you ...
described yourself using the very words i used to describe the man of my dreams
wrote me a thank you note at the end of first semester
listened to me cry about why it was so hard for me to trust people
understood how important the promise of "forever" was to me
cared about getting to know my family and loved sharing about yours
learned to play guitar just to fulfill a bet
still wanted to play games with me even though i beat you (sorry, but it's true)
spent the whole day with me and we didn't run out of things to say
told me you wanted to talk to my dad first before starting to date me
talked about your dreams for the future and God changed mine to match
told me "our story" over and over and over, just because i liked hearing it
designed a ring that was more beautiful than one i ever could have imagined
stood in the church and held my hand while we worshipped
you are my love. you have been these last 6 years we've spent together and i know you will be forever.
