You need never search far to see my face, for my commitment and love for you will bind me always to your side.
When your steadfast ship begins to toss and turn in life's storms, I will be there holding your hand.
When your sails become heavy with rain, I will be there, offering you strength in companionship.
And when the seas are calm and you are sailing smoothly, I will be there to celebrate with you the beauty of our life together.
On this most cherished of days, I give to you my heart, full of love for only you.
I give to you my name and my past, as I am joined today by God to a new family and a new future.
I give to you my solemn promise to forever honor and treasure you, the man God has given to me for life.
-----my wedding vows made twelve years ago today to the love of my life.
I still do.
Happy Anniversary, Babe!
