Marry someone who loves your little quirks,
Who pauses the basketball game with seconds to go to hear you talk about your day.
Marry someone who finds your flaws adorable,
Who helps you grow wiser not just bolder or prouder.
Marry someone who can dedicate time to understanding how you feel,
Someome who studies who you are and can help you reach your stars.
Marry someone who inspires you to do well,
to better the world and to create a successful life together.
Marry someone who can capture the essence of your time together and explores the beauty of their own soul.
Marry someone that teaches you about politics, finances and history,
Who has vision.
Fall for their intelligence and grace,
physical charms will only fade and you will be left with an empty shell.
Marry yourself before you marry someone else,
Become someone else’s who.
Your happiness isn’t in someone else’s hands,
As a soul mate compliments but does not complete you.
You are whole, never forget that.
If you take this to heart and you marry someone who can see you and fight with you and rock your world,
The flame of passion will never be extinguished by pettiness or keeping scores.
Give yourself freely and the rest will come.
