Dear Lily Potter - My lover, my wife, my best friend, and my soul mate,

I hate you.

I hate how you always have to have the last word.

I hate that you go absolutely MENTAL over the little things.

I hate that you never seem to get that I need "guy time", Pads really isn't that bad.

I hate the fact that you're always bloody right all the damn time... can't you be wrong once in a while?

But most of all... I hate the fact, that I don't hate you... not at all.

I love you.

I love the little noise you make when you're sleeping, it's not quite a snore but more than just a murmur. It's cute.

I love the fact that no matter where we are or what we're going you reach out to me, as if reassuring yourself that I'm still there.

I love your hair... have I told you that? I love watching it, especially in the sun, how it catches the little glints of silver that you swear aren't there. I've always loved your hair, it's fascinating.

I love the fact that you KNOW I didn't cook the dinner I said I did, but you pretend it's the best thing you've ever tasted.

I love it that you still let me grab your hand under the table.

I love kissing you, I always have and I always will.

I love the fact that you sing in the shower, badly, but hey, we can't all be perfect.

I love that YOU are stubborn, if not I never would have known that you absolutely loathe your middle name, I can understand that you know, mine is Eustace... or that your favourite flowers are NOT in fact lilies but orchids.

I love the fact that you don't hold my quirks against me, so I like my grapes peeled... what of it?

But most of all Lily Potter...

I love you, Lily Evans-Potter with all my heart and soul.

Forever is a long time, my love. I'm stupid enough to want to spend forever and eternity with you.

Always and forever yours,
