To the woman that I love:
You mean so much to me;
More than words could ever speak.
I’ve seen something new in you this week,
And felt the truth that I am weak.
There are places in me only you can meet.
Things I have shared have felt unfair.
but I have tossed my heart into the air,
and you have handled it with care.
I hate that I have ever taken you for granted
Or left you alone and short-handed.
I had holes I was scared you’d leave stranded
without knowing you could reprimand them.
Of all the things I have tested,
Only your love has left me standing.
I see now my deepest need
is to know that you will not leave.
I see the value in you and in me,
and I long for you to want me.
I am the best me and live my best life
with you at my side and you as my wife.
I have sought security, but found it inside;
As there is nothing my love for you would not abide.
So whether perfect or rough,
I need you to know,
You are the woman that I love.
