Wants

I want a forever partner more than I want the
idealistic marriage we all get lost trying to find.
I want a kind love more than I want a lover.
I want someone who truly loves themselves
because I’ve learned one can only love me
to the extent they honestly love themselves.

Cake

We can’t just dress this cake with
love and expect it to taste good if
the ingredients don’t include respect, trust, loyalty, honesty, faith, kindness, affection…
Love isn’t enough to make us edible.
I want delectable. I want filling.
I want a flavor I can devour.
I want much more than the icing on our cake.

Moment

I keep getting the feeling that I should be capturing this moment, this experience. I’ve never done anything so daring in the name of romance and possibly love. I’m nervous as heck. The butterflies in my stomach seem drunk. Fluttering about in all different directions. But among the chaos I still feel a sense of peace and calm. I trust him with my safety and dare I say heart? So here I am embarking on this new journey, adventure. I don’t know where this will lead but I want these words to frame this moment in time. Who knows, maybe I’ll be reading this to our kids one day.
