“Standing here in this place,
Wondering how long forever will last”
You are the best thing that has happened to me since the day I met you, you are the most interesting person that has happened in my life after so many years of emotional solitude and you are different person who has brought with you inner peace after several attempts of finding one.
“For all the times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see”
You were there for me in my darkest moments and you were there with me in my beautiful moments. You were there for me in my cloudy days and you were always around me in my brightest moments, you have taught me lessons and have brought me blessings. You have shown me the way and led me through the paths and with these my love, every second, minutes, hours, days and months spent with you is filled with unending memories.
“Its like catching lightening
The chances of finding someone like you”
I got attracted to you the first time we met, I felt a connection with you the first time we spoke and I felt a different ecstasy with you the first time we kissed. I found peace in trusting you and joy in loving you at every moment of our lives together.
“For all the love I’ve found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby”
I loved you when you were with another and when you were in solitude I loved you still. Days of hurting me didn’t stop my love for you and when you brought tears to my eyes, my feelings never grew weary.
“You were my strength when I was weak
You saw the pains there was in me”
I loved you when you wiped my tears with your soothing hands, I loved you more when you kissed away my pains and I loved you beyond words when you took my pains as yours.
“I’m staring into your face
Now I’m thinking, want to see the end of forever with you”
I could go on and on but this day, I just want to stop by saying to you, to the witnesses here and to the whole world that I love you and I will love you till I breathe my last.
“I hate to turn up out of the blues uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it”
I folded the paper neatly into my bag as I watched the man I wrote the vows for get married to another. My heart was screaming but my body was weak, my soul was crying but my face was blank, my mind was writhing in pain but my legs were feeble. At that point, I couldn’t place what brought me here but as I made an attempt to leave, I made up my mind,
“Never mind, I’ll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you too”
True love they say, is seeing the one you love happy and truth be told, I love him and his happiness gives me utmost satisfaction. His words came to my mind
“I’ll remember you said, Sometimes it lasts in love,
And sometimes it hurts instead.”
I joined the others in giving a standing ovation as the pastor declared the duo husband and wife, yet as strong as I was, I couldn’t stop the tears from flowing down my cheeks as I was faced with reality and I finally asked myself, “For how long will I sacrifice my happiness for true love”?
