“Dear Damilover,

Our journey has definitely been no fairy tale but it has been unique to us and so I thank you for 10 years of memories…some funny, some good, some beautiful, some not so beautiful, some sad, some bad.

I am nowhere near perfect, never pretended to be, and perhaps never likely to be yet you have loved me flaws and all! I’m thankful that I sometimes made you smile (contrary to your opinion I know say I funny die) and I apologize for every time I hurt you and made you cry (that is especially horrid cos I know how strong you are).

If I had to choose again I’ll still choose to spend my life with you and I hope to God that you’ll manage me and continue to do the same! All I know is that I love you and I’m committed to you and our family..every other thing we go dey work am….” Deyemi Okanlawon wrote.
