The Proposal

A suitor carefully examines many gems
before selecting that precious one.
With this token he professes his undying love,
then eagerly waits for the perfect moment
before presenting it to his love,

A warm smile takes hold of her in a moment
of anticipation her fingers eagerly untie the ribbon
and lift the lid on the box.
At first glance her heart skips a beat.
A flood of emotions render her limp,
while he gently places it on her finger.

They gaze into each other's eyes,
lost in their own world.
True love radiates brightly into their hearts.
