A Letter to My Husband.

A letter to my husband, on this our fifth anniversary.

I’ve said hurtful things that I regret. You forgave.
I’ve sweated so many small things. You obliged.
I’ve despaired when things got rough. You encouraged.
I’ve wished for more than I should have. You granted.
I’ve cried buckets of tears. You mopped.
I’ve felt unattractive and inadequate. You desired.
I’ve dug my heels in stubbornness. You caved.
I’ve needed more than you had to give. You endured.
I’ve questioned you. You tolerated.
I’ve shared my deepest secrets. You listened.
I’ve lusted for your touch. You consumed.
I’ve trusted when it didn’t feel natural. You committed.
I’ve laughed until my stomach ached. You tickled.
I’ve given myself to you unlike any other. You welcomed.
I’ve loved more intensely than my heart thought possible. You requited.
I’ve grown as a woman, as a person, as a wife. You inspired.

You are truly my better half. I love you more than yesterday but less than tomorrow!
