"So caught up, and then
Everything just stopped;
Time, and all its worries
Everything faded away except for you and I
And the ring in your trembling hands,
Like we were the only ones in that crowded room.
And just like the first time,
My heart hit the floor
Trying to distinguish my dreams from reality;
'Is this really happening?'
Those four simple words rendered me speechless,
Made me stutter,
But oh, how I adored your courage in that moment
For the question had been written on your face all night
For all the world to know
That it was me,
Spinning in circles and squealing like a little girl,
Wanted for the rest of our lives.
And like that ring,
Gorgeous as it is,
That smile lit up these usually-troubled eyes of mine
With something I just can't name.
Now it sits
Upon my own shaking hand,
So alive as it shines,
Forever reminding me of what I have to look forward to."
