Fourteen years already huh...Looking back, the irony is not lost on me--but it's a good sort of irony. You know what a fan I am of saying, "I told you so" lol.
On one hand it seems like we met eons ago, on the other hand, it feel like only the blink of an eye.
It is true that I didn't know what love was when I met you. You taught me that love is loyal, that true love is unconditional and cares not for the judgement and opinions of others (you taught me how to drive too, but there's no need to rub it in mkay?) you showed me that as a unit we can weather any storm and survive every disaster.
And when things were really really bad between us, you set me free. That was when I truly discovered that I wanted nothing more than to be bound forever to you.
When we said our vows, I refused to promise obedience. Ironic no? But still, I'm not sure that was the wrong choice--promises are no good if you can't keep them. And while I do try my best (okay, most of the time anyways), I do not always achieve the whole obedience bit.
You have showed me that it it is okay to be vulnerable, that risking a love lost is better than to never have loved at all.
You have taught me that one must be themselves in order to truly be loved for who they are.
And that we love people for who they are, not who we think we want them to be.
I would never have guessed that my greatest joy would come in being at your feet, that in being bound I would find myself free, that the joy in being your queen comes to me when I am on my knees.
But I believe that it was just meant to be.
And I like to think that we are just getting started.
I am deeply grateful for the gift of your ownership.
I am glad that it pleases you to be my Master.
And I am yours.
in all ways.
Happy Anniversary Master.
