You are not the air that I breathe,
you are the sweet scent that drifts upon it.
You are not the sounds that I hear,
you are the music of my life.
You are not the food that I need,
you are the nourishment of my soul.
You are not my will to survive,
you are my reason for living.
It is with you that I experience
the wonders of the world.
It is with you that I triumph
over the challenges in my path.
It is your partnership that will lead me
to the fulfillment of my dreams.
It is your friendship that guides me
as I grow and learn.
It is your patience and wisdom
that calms my restless nature.
It is through you that I know my true self.
I do not take you for granted,
I cherish you.
I do not need you.
I choose you.
I choose you today in witness
of all the people who love us.
I choose you tomorrow
in the privacy of our hearts.
I choose you in strength and weakness.
I choose you in health and sickness.
I choose you in joy and sorrow.
I will choose you, over all others, every day for all the days of my life!
