Jimmy Darling, I have loved you since the first moment I set eyes on you. You were warm. You were kind, and you looked at me. You didn't flinch. Not even a bit. And in that moment, I felt like I could face anything with you by my side. You are the only man for me. 'Cause you're like us. Different, but special. Let me take your pain away. Replace it with love.
