The Question

We will not do this willy-nilly

To act fast would just be silly

Let’s think on this tonight

We’ve got to get this right

It is not a piece of cake

The right decision we must make

This is about the rest of our life

You asked me to be your wife

I been down that road before

It ended with a slamming door

So don’t tell me to answer now

This is a very serious vow

Yes or no one thing is true

I will always deeply love you


(just fiction… my boyfriend and I have both been burned in the past and are not looking for marriage right now.  Just thought of this after a friend got engaged this weekend after only a few months of dating.)
