My life without you is so very difficult. I told you many times throughout our 15 years together that I could never live without you. That I did not want to live without you. I told you daily just how much that I love you and just how much that you mean to me. I made it a point to show you just how important you are to me and that I needed you in my life.


I am the man that I am because of you. You looked beyond my flaws and imperfections and loved me just as I am. You stole my heart and nurtured my soul. You gave me strength and courage by just being you. Your words of wisdom instilled determination in me to overcome all obstacles. You made sure that I stayed on a true and faithful path.


You never judged me or belittled me. You never condemned me or berated me. You cared for me, encouraged me, and stood by my side even during the darkest of times. You made sure that my dignity and pride were always kept intact. You respected me and honored me. You loved me unconditionally.


I have never met a woman like you. You were truly unique, one of a kind. You were my rock and my inspiration. You gave me purpose and self-worth. You made me feel alive. You kept me young.


The moment that I first laid eyes on you I knew that you were my one true soul mate. I knew then that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you. I wanted to take care of you, love you, and make you as happy as I possibly could.


I love you with every ounce, every fiber of my being. I gave you all that I am without hesitation or reservation. My heart, body, and soul were given to you freely.
