A Marriage Proposal

you speak marriage promises
you take my hand in yours
i peer into your loving eyes
as you kneel upon the floormarriage

incisive patience has taught me
wisdom of your years
wholeheartedly i listen to your oath
your adoration dispels my fears.

my joyful heart affirms your love
to its urgings i acquiesce
trust has openend heart & soul
dispels all vestige of loneliness

I’ve waited for you many days
alone,often burdened with strife
here you kneel ring in hand
asking me to be your wife

anguish of my loveless life
the memories of the pain
all vanish when you touch my face
whispering my name

once still, now my senses stirred
awakened from sleep, i’m free
i hear the birdsong, feel the breeze
scent of lily embraces me

there were times i was certain
love for me would come too late
you knelt and whispered lifetime promise
i understood real love is worth the wait
