Sonnet No. 2

Sometimes it seems like we have always been.
Was there a time without a You and I?
So tell me darling how could I begin,
To dream of life without you by my side?
So here I stand your hand in mine to ask,
If you would let me change your name to mine.
Though living life can be a fearful task,
Together even darkest days will shine.
If you accept this ring and take my heart,
I’ll walk beside you till the day we die.
For only death my dear could ever part,
Two hearts that fit so well as you and I.

My dear one take this ring I offer you
And make that solemn sacred vow, “I do.”
