Note to recorder:

I am looking for a male voice with a soft, romantic, as well as emotional voice. Please record the audio in a romantic, heartwarming voice. The tone should represent the feelings of a young man for his fiancee. I have posted 14 letters for audios here, so please once you record the audio for this, I aspect to have your more audios on the other letters. I will keep in touch with you by messages and comments.

Please do not skip any word. Thank you so much.

Letters to Seemi

Letter 6
I am Getting Older

Dearest Seemi,

Today when I came home after my walk, I took a look in the mirror. I noted that I am getting bald. Also, my hair has started to turn white like an old man’s.

Two or three years ago, if I saw any gray hair on my head, I plucked it out just to look young. When I was 16, my face was full of pimples. I hated pimples. They disturbed and hurt me a lot. Now that I am 22, I don’t have pimples, but they left very tiny holes on my face.

No matter how hard I try to stay young, one day I will be old. I hope you will like me forever because this skin, this hair, and this body are mortal, but my love for you is immortal. I will love you forever.

Five years ago, when I saw you for the first time, you looked as white as snow. Your delicate hands, your deep eyes, and your silence still occupy my mind. No matter how you look with the passage of time, I will always love you the same way.

Yours forever,
Rizwan

I'm not sure that I have a romantic voice, but I think that if I were trying to read it in a sensitive, dreamy manner, I'd use different words. For instance, I would word the initial paragraph this way:

"Today, after my walk, I took a look in the mirror, and noticed that not only am I going bald, but that my hair is starting to turn white. It's like I'm actually starting to get old."

I can read it out verbatim but I feel like the end result will sound a little weird to me. If it doesn't to you, then I don't mind doing it.
