I post these a day late because we are on vacation. This is what I said when I placed the collar around Beauty’s neck and took her as mine forever.
I pledge my life unto yours. When you need strength I will offer mine. When you need words of encouragement I will listen and provide support. When you need solace and comfort and the silent speech of love, I will understand. I will place you in my heart today, before all others, and I pledge to work from this hour forward to make our commitment everlasting.
Beauty, you are assertive yet gentle. You are stubborn yet yielding: you bend your will to my wishes like you never have for another. I admire your spirit, your honesty, your spontaneous silliness, and your quiet shyness that others never see. My aim is not to change you, but rather to grow with you and to help you grow. I bring a stronger heart to this choice than I have brought to any other. Never before have I wanted to take someone as mine by the offer of a collar for life. I want to bind you to my side and tuck you safely in my heart for the rest of your days. You give my life balance, support, love, laughter, strength, passion, and a completeness I have never known. I wish for my love and my dominance to give you wings, to let you soar in this life yet remain with me, as mine, for two forevers.
Beauty, I accept your desire to serve me. I will honor your feelings and your needs. I will always put your best interests foremost in my dominance over you. You belong to me, thus you are now part of my body and soul. Your happiness, health, and well-being are in my care, and I will selflessly tend to them because you are part of me and my destiny.
