He wanted her eternally 
After he found perfection 

In this imperfect world

Between him to this girl

The ongoing passion  

Was absolutely refreshing

Changing both their demeanor

Revealing their loving nature 

Causing more frequent smiles

Reinforcing their initial belief 

That love could indeed last forever

With them facing the future together 

She had finally found in him

Ultimately the love of her life

At this truly unexpected age

When she decided to be brave

He never wavered for a moment

From the chrysalis of change

Which had engulfed them both 

Giving life to new found hope

So he planned how to ask her

Knowing she would say yes

When he did in fact propose

What destiny would not oppose
