______, 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.
