This is last in a series of four posts describing how I feel about my “wife” (I’m not married or engaged as of writing this) and what I would say to express my feelings towards her.
I NEED YOU
You are the Lord’s greatest miracle. There is and never will be another with your mind, your heart, your eyes, your hands, your hair, or your mouth. None that came before you, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk, talk, move, or think exactly like you. You are a unique creature and I need you. Only you.
I need you because you compensate for all my weaknesses, and complete me. When I feel depressed, you make me sing. When I feel sad, you make me laugh. When I feel ill, you make me double my labor. When I feel fear, you make me plunge ahead. When I feel inferior, you make me wear new clothes. When I feel uncertain, you make me raise my voice. When I feel poverty, you make me think of wealth to come. When I feel incompetent, you make me remember past success. When I feel insignificant, you make me remember my goals.
You are the Lord’s greatest miracle. None can think your thoughts. None can duplicate your emotions. None can copy your handwriting. None can produce your love, and in truth, none has your ability. You are a unique creature and I need you. Only you.
I need you because you complement all of my strengths and complete me. When I become overconfident, you make me recall my failures. When I over indulge, you make me think of past hungers. When I feel complacent, you make me remember my competition. When I enjoy moments of greatness, you make me remember moments of shame. When I feel all-powerful, you make me try to stop the wind. When I attain great wealth, you make me remember one unfed mouth. When I become overly proud, you make me remember a moment of weakness. When I feel my skill is unmatched, you make me look at the stars.
You are the Lord’s greatest miracle. You are rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore you are valuable. You are the end product of thousands of years of evolution; therefore, you are better equipped in both mind and body than all the goddesses and queens which preceded you. You are a unique creature and I need you. Only you.
I need you because I am happier when I’m around you. Every morning, every afternoon, every night. I need to be with you. I need to be with you not because of the love we make, but because of the love we have for each other. I need to be with you not because of the laughs we spend but because of the tears we save. I do not need to be near you for thoughts we share, but for the words we never have to speak. I need you because I love and want you so much.
I needed you yesterday, I need you today, and I’ll need you tomorrow to be my homie, my lover, my friend. I need to experience the rest of my life with you. I need to grow old with you. I need you now and forever. I need you to be my wife.
Will you marry me?
