Marry Me

By: Richard Oti

I skipped over a hundred lips to kiss yours
It was tender, heavenly, and a perfect first.
I’m charmed
I’m in love with you.

I found you in the midst of a thousand others
Because there was no one as pretty as you.
No one with such blue eyes
Eyes that could see deep down into my soul.

I chose you over a million ladies
It was only you who could make the earth stand still.
I’d love to revolve around your light
Because it shines brighter than the sun.

I’d marry you in a heartbeat,
Because this diamond ring wouldn’t fit anyone else.
It should find its home on your finger,
Because you have found a home in my heart.

Will you be my wife?
