A Significant Name

For Shelly

Permit me to interpret the significance of your name.


S is for suspense.
It describes my condition while I awaited your reply.

H is for honesty.
This is one of the fine characteristics that you possess.

E is for ethics.
It’s the basis for measuring equity and integrity.

L is for love.
This is the main thing that brought us here today.

L also is for loyalty.
It’s a quality that we must have to keep our vows alive.

Y is for year.
It calculates the quantity of time that we’ll be together.
