When I look at you…
I see the future laid out in front of me.
I see a smile that warms my whole body up
coming home from work on a cold winter day.
I see heads thrown back in laughter
as we make dinner in our tiny kitchen together.
I see adventure after adventure
as we explore the cast world around us.
I see someone who is thoughtful, caring,
and willing to listen to the shenanigans of my life.
I see the father of my future children
who will be gentle, loving, and patient.
I see the dad who will be fun and energetic
and give them endless childhood memories.
I see a hard worker who never gives up
and is willing to face all of life’s challenges.
I see us celebrating life’s biggest moments
together hand in hand.
I see you teasing me with grey hair as we
rock on our front porch for endless hours.
I see someone who is ready to live life
to the fullest until the very end.
I see everything you will be
and hope that it will be with me.
When I look at you…. I don’t see just you.
I see my best friend.
