Marry Me?

Breathless and startled
By the sight of your eyes
If they ever looked away
I swear to you I'd die
I don't know what I'm doing
I don't know what I may
I'm left without the breath in me
Or anything to say
I put my arms around you
And pull you to my kiss
I feel you hands upon my hips
As I fall into bliss
You rest upon my shoulder
And softly kiss my neck
I reach into my pocket
I'm such a nervous wreck
I pull out a little package
A little velvet box
Inside a silver ring resides
I see your face of shock
I hold onto your hand
And hold on for my life
I slide the ring upon you
Asking you to be my wife
A smile starts to form
As I fall on my knee
I look up to you and ask,
'Will you marry me? '

    awwww very very sweet....
    i think thats the sweetest question...but it has to be in a sweet way..
    cool thing about poets is, that if they ever want to ask someone to marry them, they can make up a sweet poem and at the end, ..say will you marry me. ilike it.

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
