I’m here for the man who helped me with my thermodynamic’s homework,
For the dude that told my ex to back off when I left him for my now husband,
For the Starcraft nerd that let me create a Space Marine fleet when the guys in the room doubted my “strategery”.
I’m here for the dude that dressed up as Woody, or a cowboy, or whatever would make us smile on Halloween,
For the happy dances, and love dances that I never got to see because I always came in late to the room.
I’m here for the young man who showed me how a true gentle souls lives; how to not compromise my integrity.
Even though I couldn’t participate in the events leading up to his nuptials,
Since being one of the guys doesn’t truly get me invited to guys’ only events,
I have to admit I’m here as more than a guest or a friend.
I’m here as his sister, his mentor and guide,
To return the favor he did us when we miscarried and needed clarity and closure.
He was our marriage’s guardian angel.
We owe you the world bro.
We really do.
I hope your success extends to your new lease on life,
To the new family you start today.
Keep in mind we will always love you,
And that you can count on us for shelter, support and strength.
May all that is desired by y’all come to fruition.
May all your dreams become reality.
