Never has a man loved a woman as I love thee,
a love that was forever meant to be.
I have walked a long path for too many days,
a life of solitude in so many ways.
Then I reached out for you and took your life
and asked you forever to be my wife.
This promise I make to you, my rose,
our book of love will never close.
For now I know the reason why
God gave me life beneath this sky.
to seek you out, to come to you
to take your soul, to make it true...
and hopefully to make you mine,
for always, darling, 'till the end of time.
