I said yes. It is an answer to a question I have controlled myself from asking you. I said yes because love presented itself in you—with your touch which sets fire to my iced heart, with your eyes sparkling like crystal under the blazing sun, and a smile which would put the 7 Wonders to shame.
 
I said yes because I had been walking through life for this long without even the slightest allusion of how wonderful it can be and now, the answer to all my doubts came. Who was I—a mere thread in the delicate, interwoven tapestry of fate—to doubt?
I said yes because I prayed a million times before and now have been answered. I said yes because God granted me so much love to give away and have now finally found the one who needed it, who wanted it. And for as long as you need it, I would willingly suffice.
 
I said yes. And with that, I freed myself from being owned by the world. With a single word, I was freed from the loveless state that I once inhabited. Friends, behold me now… flying high into my own golden sky, for in this blissful eternity, I am love itself.
And that’s why I said yes.
