His pledge to her:

Image by Q

i will kill the spiders.

i will share my fries with you when you’ve finished all yours and are still hungry.

i won’t ever pop my collar.

i will never be rude to your tummy- when i hear it growl and gurgle.
i promise to bend down and reply respectfully.

i will eat the mushrooms when we order the supreme pizza.

i will kiss the papercuts. and the door-slammed finger, and the counter-bumped hip.

i’ll try my hardest not to get annoyed when you whisper questions and comments during movies.

i will be the big spoon. i will let you win at wrestling, sometimes. other times i will not.

i will go faster. harder.

i will pull when you want. and tease you when you don’t.

i will send you random texts and leave you silly gifts. not always. not on schedule. just whenever i want to. whenever i think you need one. or seven.

i will check your tire pressure. and remind you to take your car in.

i will hold your hand.

i will love you.

i will love you.

Temporarily removed

i will love you.
