If I could have known what it would be like to be married to you, I wouldn't have been so afraid that day. If I only could have realized how much joy you would bring into my life.
If I could have heard the conversations we would share, I would be amazed to hear the words that you gave me.
If I could have seen the perilous times we would face, I would see your courage as we went through them.
If I could have felt the gentle touch of my wife, I would have reveled in the peace and fulfillment my heart would feel each night.
If I could have known how much your friendship would mean to me through the years, I would have been afraid not to spend the rest of my life with you.
If I could have known.
