My Proposal…

For Kitty Shell

On this day

I Give thee a plant

in a silly way

in a silly hat

|

Call me “crazy”

or “weirdo” if you prefer

but call me, please

to your leisure I defer

|

For not just a plant

but my future to thee I offer

for in it, without you

lies only a tear-filled blur

|

Faults, I have plenty

but with you, progress

with time, I Know

I’ll bug you less!

|

In rhyme I can say

what in text I cannot

though mortal words,

still miss the Spot

|

A poet I am

a lover of words I am not

they lack the True meaning

in what you, I’ve got!!

|

A writer, you’ve got

but can’t you see?

without you in my Life

there’s little point in it, for me!

|

With you I flourish

I’m growing a lot

will you Share in my Future

‘til we’re filling our plots?

|

No more than You I want

to be there when I fall

nothing I’d like more

then to catch you , before you…

stumble!

|

See what I mean?

Even rhyme can’t express

how much “wo ai ni”

with any accurateness!

|

Through a rhyme

or in words, plain

it cannot be described

how much I ache when you’re in pain

|

What I’d like to try

is to see you smile every day

I’ll exclaim, “There she is!”

and Know all else, will be okay!

|

There’s nothing more Healing

than True Love, when shared

YahWeh’s example to us all

For Their Son They did Bare

|

So much Joy

in all Life to be found

with You, side by side!

To the Stars we’ll be bound!

|

Sharing with you

every down, every up

Sorry, but I am

that Love struck pup!

|

but I offer you space

and what future is mine

to share in the Home

that You Design!!!

|

So my proposal

however feeble it may be

is to Grow this plant with you

for Time and Eternity!!!!

|

Will you marry me?
