I Will | A Letter To My Future Husband


Dear future husband,

I won't tell you every single second of every single day how much I love you.  I wish I could.  I wish I could promise you that.  But unfortunately, words only hold so much meaning, I won't always feel like loving you (cuz love is a choice, remember?), and I could tell you a million times and you still won't understand just how much I freaking love you.

But I can show you.

And here's how I will show you.

I may not always say 'I love you' but my actions will - through cooking your favorite meal, to giving you a massage when you get back from work, in writing little love notes and leaving them around the house for you to see.

I will make the bed everyday, I'll make you breakfast as early as I can, I'll get things for you when you're too tired to move, I'll nurse you when you're sick, and still kiss you even when you're contagious.

I will always try to remember to ask how your day was, and I promise that I will always listen to you recount the events at work.

I will never climb a mountain and shout about our love from its heights, but I will write down our stories, memories we've made, and I will promise to read those to you when you're old and grey and aren't too good at remembering details.

I'll always look at you and smile and still tell you that you're the handsomest, sexiest man alive, even when your hair isn't black anymore, your face is wrinkled from laughing at me so much, and your eyesight may not be superb either.

There probably won't be any famous movies or novels about our love story, but I'll always remember the moment we met, the way our eyes spoke to each other, and the way our hearts called out saying 'Oh there you are.  I've been looking for you...'

I will always love to hold your hand in the car.  I will never tire of you showing me affection in public.  Or calling me when you're with your friends, and bragging about how I'm your girl.  I will always love telling anyone who will listen about how blessed I am to have you and call you mine.

I will always try to take interest in the things that you love and that are important to you.

I promise to never walk away from you.  I promise to always apologize when I am wrong (even if it takes me a while to realize that I really was in the wrong).

I'll always be happy in the mornings because I get to wake up next to you.

I can't promise that I'll always say the words 'I love you', but when you look in my eyes, you will see that the love I have for you is something that three little words could never fully convey.
