I pledge myself to you, my love,
My life is no longer my own,
My afterlife is unknown,
If I'm fortunate, If I'm adequate,
If I'm to be in the heavens,
I'll plead for my home.

Your eyes are my home,
Your breath is my air,
Your voice is my song,
Your arms are my shrine,
Your heart is my altar,
Your smile is my prayer,
Your hand is my prize,
I ache to make you mine.

I need you in every way,
 My rib is not in place. 
 My certain heart calls you,
 My present, my future, my solace,
 My first and last, my onliest love.
 My other self, my life,
'I love you ' is not enough.

I can relate to this very much. We always wonder "what is wrong with me?" For something we haven't done.

We always think that 'why me' when things go against us. Do we think 'why me' when we succeed? Nope.
