Be­cause I love and cher­ish you, (Name), and want to fill your heart with grace, these things I promise I will do: to tell you what is true, that you might touch whom you em­brace; to put aside my view, and paint my por­trait from your place; to give you am­ple space; to make our bat­tles few, and love the child be­hind the face: And that we might make one of two, too deep to know, too vast to trace, Be­cause I love and cher­ish you, these things I promise I will do.
