The Proposal

Staying steady for so long…

So steady…

So long…

Monotonous, something will go wrong…

So wrong…

So wrong…

Complacent, finding reasons to hold on…

So time’s up…

So what’s wrong…

Sheer luck, she could have moved on…

So hold on…

So stay strong…

Unnerved, not the best she could have done…

So pretend…

So show off…

Unimpressed, she wonders where I’ve gone…

So back up…

So she moves on…

Reeling at the thought of alone

So step up…

So it’s on…

Courage, oh how I’ve grown…

So grow up…

So win her…

So sure, oh yes, now I know…

So abrupt…

So get nerve…

The tipping point, never slow…

So be stout…

So stand strong…

Now down on one knee I go…

 

She said yes.
