For years I thought I was the man because of my independence
uncanny work ethic
and my wit..
For years I thought that it would be me and only me for the rest of my life...
It is amazing how in one breath everything changes,
everything becomes clear and a bit more complicated....
I welcome my new family with open arms and promise a life of prosperity,
and every ounce of love I have to give...
She is the love of my life,
the bearer of my child,
It feels good to finally have the ability to share this with the world....
I am not "the man" but her man
and can only hope that I can give her the love she deserves,
the life we both yearn for....
I love you Kimberley Collison,
the gift you are carrying is by far the best I have ever been privy to....
