All I want
is to hold you close
To be with you
every blessed day
and shower you always
with acts of love

You show me the meaning
of selfless love
complete me
and fill my soul
with something so profound
I cannot imagine how I never knew
it was missing

Forever more
I wish to be beside you
Surrender to you
My heart
My body
My soul

I was always
and will eternally be yours
I've loved you
in lifetimes past
and will love you
in all lifetimes to come

For the rest of my life
I'll have but one wish:
To be wherever you are
and wake with you in my arms
taste the sweet nectar
of your intoxicating kisses
Admire you affectionately
as the moonlights milky rays
enhance your sleepy beauty

I'll love you forever
I'll never break your heart
I'll be here through the best
I'll stand with you through the worst
I'll give everything I can
I'll make you smile each day that I
am blessed with your love

This to you I swear
and seal these timeless vows
with every beat of my heart
and every breath that I breathe

I will dedicate my life
to showing you
the depths of my love
and I will always treat you
like the priceless,
that you are

In my heart
you are safe

The author's comments:
This piece was very startling for me. I had originally wrote it in 2011 and entitled it "My Gem". I had thought it to be just another poem of mindless mush (one of many). Imagine my surprise when one year later I re-read it, only to find that I had written my wedding vows! Anyways, I hope you enjoyed it!
