It’s that time of the year again! A time to acknowledge she who makes all things possible. She who works tirelessly in the background to build me up. She who took me as a clay pot and molded me into the African King I am today.
My reign began when I met you, though I never knew I needed you when I wanted you…I never thought you’d be the one to tame me when I hounded you. I didn’t know where we were headed but I liked where we were going as your beauty held me hostage, Given, you’re my life's treasure; I value you, and nothing else matters. The truth is, I don't deserve you but you’re my once upon a time and happily ever after.
You elevate me to levels I could never get to without you, I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you have made of me. Because of you I’ve seamlessly transitioned from a boy to man and now I'm the King I believe I was destined to be. You give me purpose and for that I’m thankful, the truth is I don't just want you, I need you... you’re more than what I prayed for.
I'm with you, and by that I mean forever, I love you more than I love myself; it's deeper than anything I can put down on paper. For me, you changed everything, for you, I'll do anything...
I draw strength from your indomitable spirit, comfort from your kind heart and courage from your beautiful soul…because of you I have no fear…the truth is I’ll go to war for you, you’re the jewel in my crown and the tip of my spear.
