The most adorable being that ever walked the planet you are. The sight of you leaves me without breathe. I sit here and ask myself, How lucky am I to be blessed with someone as lovely, kind, caring, patient and God fearing? I bless the name of the Lord for this precious gift (you).
As graceful as a spider spins its web you walk, with your heart so wonderful and perfect. Your deeds amount to no other that I’ve come across. Words fail me when I try to define you and how you have been to me from the beginning of our journey together.
I sit here and wonder at the level of intimacy and love that flows through us as one, and I realize how much you mean to me. No other person can ever take your place in my heart. Thank you for giving me the greatest gift of all, Life! When I was inside you; I felt your strength, your passion and zest for the life you carried. Our hearts beat as one, and the beauty of being bonded with you was magical.
Looking into your eyes at conception showed how much joy and gladness I brought into your life. And I would never ever wipe that wonderful smile off your face; because it welcomed me into this world and warmed my heart.
The years after that were the most significant and memorable times of my life. I learnt from you right from cradle; through months of crawling after you and watching you tackle each day and task like it was nothing. You are my hero! You nurtured me and made me who I am today.
I applaud your courage and faith in me. You never left me, but patiently stood by me; caring, watching, and making sure I had it right. Even when I made mistakes trying to prove myself in life, questioning what I learnt from you, accepting and rejecting, rising and falling, you still stood by me!
So many wars we fought together; and one by one, we conquered them. Sadly, in these days, the existence of your kind has been simplified, but you’ll forever remain my chef d’oeuvre.
