Just a quick post before I bugger off on my honeymoon!
I’d like to share the poem, (I use this term very loosely) that I wrote for Dan. It was read during the ceremony.
For my husband
I’m in love with a man who wants to be a superhero,
Someone with extraordinary talents and abilities.
He wants X-ray vision, super speed and a thorough knowledge of the force.
But the thing is… I’ve never thought those powers are all that super.
Flying to Sainsbury’s would get old after a while.. and wearing an ironman suit to a dinner party is frankly just inappropriate.
I don’t love him because he can lift a car or turn water into ice.
I don’t love him because he saves the planet and wears a fancy costume (Not many people can pull off a spandex anyway).
I love him because he’s weird… about as weird as me.. and we dance in the kitchen while cooking.
I love him because he can’t relax without a reference code or confirmation email
I love him because he’s a bitch and spends the morning rating what the news readers are wearing…The poor weather girl gets the worst of it.
I love him because he escorts me to the toilet if I’ve had a nightmare, just in case there are any monsters.
I love him because he makes me laugh every single day.. even when I want to smash his head through the TV screen.
But most of all I love him because he sees ME.. even when all the lights go out… even when I can’t see myself anymore.
He sees me in the darkness.
I love him because he’s strong enough to lift the weight that threatens to crush me.
I can do anything with him by my side.
He is my heart, my home and my best friend.
I’m in love with a real superhero – the greatest man I know.
The wedding was the happiest day of my life (such a cliche I know). Thank you all so much for your kind words and best wishes.
The photos won’t be ready for a few weeks, so for now here’s one my uncle took!
