in the morning when the sunlight coaxes us awake, i will sing with you. as the soft orange light dances in the window, i will offer you my hand, my compassion, my love, my devotion
in the afternoon when it is time to set the seeds all in a row, i will laugh with you. as the roots of the garden plants take hold, i will share with you my joy, my curiosity, my spirit.
in the evening when the warm air has turned cool, i will promise to be faithful. as the colored leaves gently drift toward mother earth, i will give you my trust, my sorrows, my mistakes, my tears.
and at night when the white of the moon touches our hair, i will comfort you and hold you close. as the whisper of death marks our shadows, i will pray with you, and once again give you my heart, my hopes, my dreams.
stay with me marry me today
