@teslimalabi_: "We have nurtured this love. We have watched it grow and wilt and grow again, season after season. We have laughed and cried and laughed till tears of joy filled our eyes. We have confronted the distance together, 7000 miles apart at one point, relying on voice notes, emails, letters, and hope.
You have trusted me to love you and walk this journey with you by your side, as your partner and equal. You have filled my life with your beauty and joy. You have taught me what it means to love intentionally, that it is a choice we make daily, seeing the best and worst in each other and choosing to love both.
I didn't think I'd be nervous asking you to be my wife, but I was. On one knee, reading you a poem I wrote for you years ago, holding back my tears with a wide grin on my face as you cried. I said the words, and it seemed like time stood still. That moment was the only moment that mattered.
So Thank you.
Thank you, for saying yes; "Yes" to being loved, lead and served. "Yes" to a lifetime of partnership, adventure, and discovery, and "Yes" to the gloomy days; if they come, I'll be ready because my sunshine will be right beside me.
I love you. @buzo_u
