Becoming partners is an important step.
To me, it means we are there for each other, through anything and everything, for as long as we breathe the same air. It means we do life together, we plan together, we decide together. It means we love each other, and are there for each other. It means we are loyal, we are devoted, and that we are, for each other, the one who comes before all else.
It means I love him. It means he loves me. It means we share.
Every day I get to know Chesie better, and every day I find that I really don't want to be without him. Every day I find that my time with him is more alive, more real, than is my time away from him. Every day I love him more and more.
Every day I find I wake and rush to him. Every day I see I won't sleep well if he doesn't hold me. Every day I want to be with him more and more, and every day I find him more beautiful, more handsome, more interesting and fascinating and sexier than I could possibly imagine.
That's what partner means to me. It means I love you wallaby. It means I want to be with you for as long as I can see into the future.
I love you Chester Howley. It's the the ground on which I stand.
