Five Years

anni_09Matt when I met you, I think I found the only other member of my species on this planet.

anni_01I am constantly amazed that you can see the things I see, yet you also manage to give me new views of the world.

anni_10Loving you, and knowing your love, has reminded me what it means to be alive.

anni_05Sometimes when I’m awake late at night, I’m so overwhelmed that I have to kiss your skin while you sleep.

anni_02I will give you all my strange thoughts, and listen to the ideas you share.

anni_04I promise never to hijack your spaceship or trap you in a web of electro-magnetic beams, and my kisses will never be poison.

anni_11When you are sad or angry, I will do whatever I can to help you.

anni_12When we encounter trials, I will stand next to you and face them with you.

anni_13And when you are happy, I will be excited and glad for you.

anni_06I will never make you guess when something is wrong, nor will I make you wait to hear: I love you, I love you, I love you.
