I think the space between us this past week and a half has been good. It has allowed me to clear my thoughts and I hope it has for you too.
The time and space has allowed me to reflect on everything and to make sure that I knew this is love. That this is worth every second and that the feelings are real.
Last week I made promises to you that I loved you. I made promises to you that I loved [your son] and I made promises to you that this, if you wanted it, is forever. I let you know that you are my dream and that I want to be with you forever.
Today will hopefully be a day that we both remember forever. Today I want to start bringing your dreams to life. You said that you dreamed that I would come back, and I did. You said that I was your dream man and hopefully today another of your dreams will come true and I will make you the happiest girl on the planet for now and forever.
You’re an amazing girl and I never want you or [your son] to leave my side, but I know that it’s time that I have to start showing you that not only have things changed with me, but that everything I have said is true. So..
[Name], will you do me the honour of becoming my wife – Will you marry me?

There is both a ring and a necklace here. This engagement ring is a symbol of my love for you. This necklace is a symbol that I will always be around for you, no matter what happens. I want it to be up to you which you wear. The ring when you are ready and the necklace if you feel hesitant. I want to give you the option of accepting, without feeling pressured all around.
I love you.
