Since you…

rainbows are black and white

and, since you….

lightbulbs cast no light

and, since you….

sunsets are looking gray

None of these hold a candle to you

they never did, not in any way

since you….

No other women walk the earth

and, since you….

Songbirds bore me from their perch

your smiles, your beauty, and your heart

outlast anything the world’s provided since it’s start


since you

stand here before me today

I’d ask you to marry me, your grace…

on the calendar’s  greatest recorded day….
