a proposal of sorts

marry me
because i'd like to wake up
in OUR bed
i'd like to go to OUR church
in OUR car
i'd like to celebrate with OUR
children all the special days
of the year
and i'd like to have OUR aniversary
here i am with everything i own
that i would like to be OURS
in a house, in a heart
in a hopefull future
but the only thing missing
is a past and words like
we, us and them 
i don't want to suffice with 
just being him

    Very inventive stuff, John. How could a prospective mate resist this proposal, which covers yesterday, today and tomorrow in such a charming way. Love, daver

    I feel your longing John; sometimes patience isn't enough, the need is now and when it isn't forthcoming, there is pain. Love yourself in the meantime as you are special! :)
