Just a man showing his appreciation for the one he loves when comparing his time with her to the wonders he has seen through out his life.


The life I had before the life I have now contained moments so wonderful, so seamless, that they will always be worthy of reflection. And I'm sure you had such moments as well, that you find so worthy of remembrance.

I remember seeing the blood red sun set over the shimmering blue ocean in Acapulco, while I was lying in the warm water so comfortably. Absolute relaxation overcame me, and everything seemed so peaceful.

I remember climbing to the top of an immense waterfall in Yosemite and staring out at the endless sea of lustrous green trees as far as my eyes could see. I felt like I was in another realm; as if where I stood were Paradise.

I remember watching the ancient sun rise in the vast desert of Kirkuk. The sun was appearing like I have never seen it before, bringing incomparable beauty to such a loathsome and barren wasteland.

I remember holding my daughter in my hands for the first time, being so grateful over how perfect she looked. My own little Cherub staring up into my eyes, words could never describe the beauty I saw in those moments.

These were all times that were wonderful and serene for me. When I look back on those moments, I feel like there was not something missing, but someone. Someone I wish I could have shared all these superlative moments with, not just someone like you, but you.

We will see wonders together to add to our past moments of clarity. We will live our new life in novel beauty, and unfolding new mysteries together. Seeing our share of sunsets, finding our own paradise, and bringing beauty into places where the land seems so barren and ugly. We will not only be like a rising sun in each others eyes, but our love will shine for others.

And when we bring life into this world together we will be witness to a beauty that words cannot express, but only you and I will understand.

The life we had has prepared us for the life we have. And even back then, through seamless moments so worthy of remembrance, I believe I was waiting and hoping for the moments we share now.
