The Proposal

Many charmed my eyes
But you touched my heart.
I cannot promise you the world
It’s a home for all people
Each having a right to it
I cannot promise you heaven
Heaven is God’s shrine
Only He owns it all
I cannot promise you happily ever after
For life is impossible
Without hard times and hardships
Complement life as love to a woman’s heart.

But I can promise
To be your moon in darkest of days
To be a finger that wipes your tears
To be the blood running in your veins
I can promise
To be the first and last voice you hear,
To have your weakness my encouragement,
To share the weight of your life
To hold you close right at the top
Clearing the ground so you’ll land unharmed

Your beauty shall be my lines
Your heart shall be my refuge
Your arms shall be my home
In the wake of this day;
I make a promise
To be a loyal friend
A loving husband
And the best father.
Say it out loud love!
Will you marry me?
