Proposals are a difficult thing to do. You have the joy of acceptance and the fear of rejection that seem to occupy your mind and fill it with doubts and hope. This is how I would propose to my love.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems

just a moment in time
the movie in your mind
put aside the whispers
filter out the doubt
look into my eyes
ignore the muted shout
don't you wish to melt away?
into the golden sun?
don't you want to whisk away,
and have a little fun?
aren't you sick of pain
and fear inside your life
all I know inside of me
I want you as my wife
I'm tired of the race
I'm ill with blank disgrace
I want the world to leave us be
I want the world to set us free
take my hand and smile
you can let those tears fall
I'll make it worth your while
and always give it all
through good and bad I'll love you
through thick and thin I'll stay
from the blinking of the sun
to the fading of the day
and in the night I'll hold you
until the sun appears
I'll take away your sorrows,
and cast away your fears
so let our love combine us
and let our spirits soar
just take my hand within you
and I'll love you evermore
