They say I’m not good enough to be your bride
Others say a man like you shouldn’t be by my side
How disheartening that their chide has you petrified
Darling, how can I get you to put the world aside?
And get you to focus on what we’re feeling inside?
Just think of that dream
That future we sought together, you and me
So sweet, so perfect, so real
That it feels like a crime to not let it fulfill
So, tell me
Will you commit fully
To this romance
While we leave the opposers
Behind in evanescence?

We know the weight of what our loved ones think has a significant impact on our lives and decisions. But at the end of the day, it IS your life. And you have the final say. Perhaps it won’t be a good decision, but what if it is?
