The Proposal (Poetry)

Updated on April 15, 2013

If I wrote poetry that came directly from my heart

Would the words I wrote cause you feelings to impart?

If I walked for miles to feel your warm embrace

Would you be there waiting with longing in your gaze

My thoughts are deep within me they fill my heart and soul

But caution intercedes so loves pain might not take hold

My heart is in the open in peril resting on my sleeve

Wanting the affection my mind can scarce conceive

Is it the softness of your touch, the calm beauty of your eyes

Or more the want of feelings and hoping you’ll abide

As an unexplored wilderness filled with peril and trials

This game of love and feelings that brings ponder and beguiles

Since the time when God first made man and he and woman met

Did he wager life eternal and for her all God offered did he bet

This creature called woman instilled with beauty and of grace

Man would give his all just to gaze in wonder at her face

But even as Eve deceived Adam and tempted Adams fate

Has man heeded to hearts calling and longed for her embrace

But to find a special woman, one of character and poise

The dream of each man’s heart that turns men out of boys

So this day I’ll pop the question of which I hope the answer’s yes

And find out if I can take your hand and passed your mental test

For what can man hope for as life bids him trials to overcome

If there is no one there to share when life’s test are lost or won

The future lies ahead and this point we’ll never pass again

But neither can we retreat to when our friendship began

As I come here now before you and kneeling on one knee

I ask your hand in marriage that together we'll forever be ©

      Thank you both fro reading and your kind comments. This was my reply to a friends challenge to write a poem with romance. I'm afraid my proposal to my wife was not so romantic. fortunately she said yes and the 2nd will be 18 years of wonder and joy.
