______, I take you as my husband/wife. To say I love you is not enough To try to con­dense the depth of my feel­ings in­to a few words is im­pos­si­ble. It doesn’t tell of the re­spect I have for you as an in­di­vid­ual, Nor how I ap­pre­ci­ate How ten­der and car­ing you are, Nor the joy I find in your laugh­ter, Nor the tears I hold back for your pain, Nor the strength you give when I need it, Nor the plea­sure I feel in your touch. But if to say I love you means all these things Then let me say I love you more each day.
