To the One I may love, I'm sure that when I first met you, it was small. I thought that little tingle was sure to go away- a small little fly that will be swatted by the hands of time. When I first met you, I came to the end of a short lived road, and recently was disappointed by the anti-climatic view at the end. When I found your road, I trudged on relucantly- was there really another way for me? Sure, there was a sign-and I saw you. I thought a few times about what other road to take, but I chose you. I couldn't explain why; maybe because you looked somewhat promising. 

To the One I am beginning to Love, your road is full of twists and surprising turns. Eventually I was so far in to turn back now. And really- I didn't want to leave it. I felt winter warm up to spring, and new life began here. And as I look a little further back, I wonder how far this route will take me since I made it this far already. 

And the route took a brighter turn for an opening from the thorns and thickets of this lonely wilderness. 

To the One I Love, when time went by, you never left me. We spent so much time together-and even in the darkest, pessimistic days in which I often drowned in, you stayed by me like the guiding Southern Cross. I thought I was undeserving of you this way because if love is forever, I had to make the right choice. And as I stand at the edge of the abyss I am about to leap from, I can see how far we've come- and how beautiful the road and the sight is this whole time. 

And I see a new dawn of a hot summer heading my way as I lept off...

To the One, as I fell deep into the canyon, I felt my back being caught by the gentle touch of the wind. Oh look a rainbow ring, and the spray of a gushing waterfall. There was no turning back now, but I let myself fall down- to be just falling deep into your comforting arms amongst the velvet canopy of emerald and jewels of colours. To a new Paradise of Marriage.
