“For 25 years, you have been my best friend.
With great joy, I have made you happy.
With deep remorse, I have made you sad.
Through all of this, I have never faltered
In believing with all my heart there is only you in my life…
I promise you all the joy I am capable of giving,
All my strength to share life’s sorrows,
All my material possessions for they mean nothing to me without you.
I love you to the moon and back again,
And my greatest fear is to live in a world without you in it.
So I ask you to have me as you have had me for 25 years,
‘Til the end of my life and to my soul’s eternity:
Say only ‘Yes’, and I am yours.”
