The Proposal - Poem by Jeff Gangwer

At Temple Square in Salt Lake City:

I drop to my right knee at Rebeca's feet

(The grass is damp, but the sun is shining)

I hesitate

This is it

(I even practiced)

I choke a little and apologize for my less-than-perfect Spanish:
"Eres mí mejor amiga y compañera.
"Eres la persona más importante en mí vida.
"Tu lo eres todo para mí.
"Te amo mucho, mucho.
"¿Te casarías conmigo? "

Despite my numerous faults and my glaring imperfections,
She accepts my marriage proposal through tears of joy—
"Of course! "—
A priceless gift on my twenty-ninth birthday
