My Dearest Husband,
I am not what you would call a traditional romantic, I think I’m too much of a practical person for all that. The best thing is that you don’t mind, neither are you.
What I feel for you is a deep, eternal, unbounding love. When I sit here and think about how much I love you my heart races and my eyes well up, you are my whole world and more. But to show this in front of others, to make a public declaration of my love…how would I even start?
Flowers? Chocolates? A new shirt? Would that demonstrate how you changed my life and made it worth living again? A weekend away? A night at the theatre? dinner for two? Would that explain to you how thankful I am, from the bottom of my heart, that you chose me to build a life with?
I just don’t think it would do my feelings justice. I don’t think anything like that could ever do ‘us’ justice.
So how could I show you that my life would fall apart without you? That you are at the heart of everything that I hold dear in life. My partner, my mentor, my friend.
I could make enough dinner so that you have left-overs for lunch the next day. I could make you laugh with stories of each awkward situation I had got myself in that day. I could give you space to grow, while continuing to work on growing myself. I can let you go out into the world with confidence, knowing that no matter where life may take you, you will always come home to me. I could kiss you goodnight each evening and fall asleep in your arms.
For me, the best way for me to show you how much I care is to keep life just the way it is.
Our life is the most wonderful kind of ordinary I could have asked for.
I don’t need and grand gestures and heart stopping moments, because for as long as your hand is within reach of mine I will have all the love I need.
Today, tomorrow and forever….
Your Wife xxx
