She Said Yes

Her eyes were dazzlingly bright

Her smile as radiant as the sun

On her hand she displayed a ring

That told the world a story

She has found the one she wants

The one she will be with forever

He wants to make her a part of his world

For forever and a day

And he shares this family heirloom

With a sparkling diamond gem

Together they will share a life

And bask in their love for each other

She stood by the window
Shining as bright as the sun
He had come home
Now she could share the news
To his shouted greeting
She replied with joy
And rushed to be by his side
He said she looked radiant
She blushed and spoke
In one breath
She shared the news
They soon would be parents
Their family was growing
Pride, love and excitement
All washed over him
Together they embraced in joy
All three of them
