My Knight

My wife wrote this for me about this time last year after we had started dating.  I do not have the words to explain how much it truly means to me. I read it often, and each time I take away a new perspective on how deeply we are connected and much love exists in our relationship.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I do. KW

Lots of women say they want a knight in shining armor…not me.  The way I see it is, a knight in shining armor symbolizes a man who has never been to war.  He has talked the talk, but he hasn’t walked the walk. He’s never gotten his hands dirty, never fought for what he wants.  The knight in shining armor may be prepared and have good intentions, but he lacks the necessary experience needed to go to war. 

I have found something much more rare and valuable than a knight in shining armor.  Ladies, start looking for a knight with worn and tattered armor. At first glance he may appear a little rough around the edges, but I assure you he has a heart of gold and knows what it takes to protect the princess. This knight is often overlooked, but don’t underestimate this dark horse.  He has seen battle and knows how to keep you safe from harm and is willing to go to the ends of the Earth to prove himself. 
The knight in tattered armor will show you true love. He will not only tell you that you are beautiful, but he will make you believe it – even when you’re at your worse & those are the times you’ll actually appeal to him the most. 
This knight will encourage you to be yourself and longs for you to be comfortable in your own skin.  He’s not looking for glitz and glamour, he’s looking for real. 
This knight is a true gentleman.  He will open your doors, carry your bags, kiss you on the forehead, protect you and cherish you.  He doesn’t do these things because he thinks he is superior to you, he does these things because it’s his way of showing how much he respects and values you. 
This knight will know there are certain times a girl HAS to have her chocolate and he’ll bring it to her at precisely the right moment. 
This knight will fill you with such joy and he’ll make you laugh until tears stream down your face, you snort and your entire body hurts in a remarkably fabulous way. 
This knight will make you feel like the most important person in the entire world. His eyes will pierce your soul and time will stand still.  Nothing and no one else will matter. 
When you meet this knight, you’ll know it.  You will feel an immediate, intensely intimate connection unlike anything you have ever known before. 
This knight will refuse to accept your standard “I’m fine” response when he asks you what’s wrong.  He’ll know better and make you tell him what’s really wrong and then he’ll hold you tightly in his arms and make everything better. 
When you meet this knight let him know just how special he truly is, never let him go and sit back and laugh at all the silly girls searching for the wrong knight.
