"It hadn't really hit me
Just what I would do when he's gone
But as he laid on my lap
Half-asleep, and more relaxed than I've ever seen
I knew, in those few moments,
That my love was not in vain;
That this man I wish to call my husband,
Human as he is,
Would not forsake me admist my pain
Would not judge me in a fit of anger,
He would chose to love me
Imperfect as I am,
Even if it meant breaking all the rules.
Never have I been so sure of what he means to me
Of how safe I feel with his arms wrapped around me tightly;
I can feel it in his kiss and when he says goodnight,
Like I'm the only girl in the world he wants.
I see my tomorrows in his eyes,
That happiness I've never had
For on that night, when he took my hand
And whispered those four wonderful words,
I knew it was meant to be."
