So here it is, one last time and then I’ll leave you alone forever, if that’s what you decide.  I love you, Snow, and have since the hour we first met.  Hell, I wanted you even before then.  Since before we existed.  As if every movement of every star and planet, every tick of creation’s clock occurred only so that we could someday find each other.  I’m certainly no handsome prince, come to steal you away from all the cares of the world.  I can never offer you riches and palaces or any sort of luxury.  But I think you’ve had your fill of such things by now.  What I can offer you is a home in our valley, where we can raise our kids.  And I’m old-fashioned enough that I think we should be married to do it.
