The poet is still in love

August 5th, 2011

Hello everyone and welcome back to another fantastic episode of The Thursday Blog. You are going to love today’s episode whether you are reading this for the first time or your family have issued a computer ban from Friday to Wednesday as you have a habit of after reading the latest episode of your beloved blog, still sitting there for the rest of the week hitting refresh every few seconds hoping in vain for another episode; much like Mark Zuckerberg at the end of The Social Network.

Today, four years ago, I bawled my eyes out crying as I saw the beautiful sight of my Princess walking down the aisle and choosing me, under her own free will, to be her husband. Each year on our anniversary I sit and try to do something that is close to impossible. I try and describe her beauty and communicate how much I love her. Four years on, this has not changed and ………

The poet is still in love

When I was young, I was a dreamer. Oh you should have seen my dreams. I could run faster than the speed of light, I could jump from building to building, I could entertain thousands if not millions and have the audience in the palm of my hands. Nothing was impossible in my dreams and only the impossible was wished for.

When I was young I dreamt of being rich. Money would be made and multiplied and nothing that was wanted would not be obtained. I could have rooms upon rooms filled with every wish and desire a boy could think of; like magic, everything I touched turned to gold.

I do not have this kind of wealth but I have found something that has made me immensely rich.

When I was young I dreamt of being famous. All would know my name and countless people would adore me. I would be accepted, I would be loved, I would be treasured by people all over the globe.

I do not have this kind of fame but I have found someone whose opinion of me means more than all the others combined.

When I was young I wanted to be successful. I wanted to be the best in the world in a specialised area, so that I could devote my life to a life’s work.

I do not have that kind of success but I have found a greater cause to devote my life’s work to.

Don’t you see my Princess what you have done to me. You have not caused me to forget my dreams but you have enlarged them. All the wealth I could possible think of doesn’t compare to the value you are in my life. All the fame, accolades, and love from the world’s public cannot add up to a fraction of the value I receive from one moment with you. I would place no greater importance in life than to be the Husband, Father and Servant of God that I am called to be.

You have never sought to change me but every minute I spend with you inspires me to grow. You have such a genuine love, one so unique that I have never seen anything quite like it. You love people for who they are not what they can do. You find joy in the most unlikely places – from finding a temporarily lost toy, to earning points on a loyalty card from a shop that you will never visit again. You laugh and my goodness when you laugh the whole of heaven rejoices at the beauty of the sound. And when you lie in my arms, with you eyes closed tight, I am reminded that I am the richest, most loved, successful and blessed man in the world.

I love you my Princess.

Love your Faithful Husband
