Let My Heart Bleed a Question (a proposal poem)
This is what I recited to my girlfriend when I proposed to her.
A nexus of Love, this spot will from henceforth be;
As I recite you this verse, penned for you...from me.
For your beauty from face, to mind, to heart
Are no doubt my favorite works of art.
And to paint a scene with hues from your soul
Would form a picture of Bliss...make me whole.
Our time together, we’ve so much to share;
Our riches, our sorrows, our souls to bare.
Time’s made us fonder, and by you I’ll stand;
Right by your side—heart-to-heart...hand-in-hand.
We love, support, encourage each other,
But the Grace of God will take us further.
With Him as our focus we’ll be fulfilled,
In all that we are and all that we build.
Rachel, I drop myself upon one knee
Because my Heart’s idée fixe concerns thee.
I want you to forever be a part of my life.
Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?
