I love you – so I will marry you.
You must login to vote
And I will bear you a child from time-to-time.
And in the bad times –
I will bury the brooding hen’s worry and the angst inside of me
And when the bills are past-due, and there’s more month than we have money for
I will find the words and the way to comfort you in this time.
I do love you
So I’ll go camping with you – without much protest
(even though I hate camping)
And I’ll clean and cook the fish you catch
(even though I hate cleaning fish)
And I’ll make it a point to smile lots and often, to make this family time quality time.
Day-to-day, I’ll do the simple, loving things that you’d never think to do for you, never mind me –
and the missing you when your mind is gone on vacation and I’m left to manage all alone; a lonely despot, with two court jesters and no one to share my throne.
I remind you to cut the grass
I love you
So I’ll take your name and make it my own
And I’ll take your pain and make it my own – when it comes
We’ll sip sorrow together when we have to, and we’ll laugh together a lot, and we’ll dance together from time-to-time.
