The most amazing thing happened yesterday,
A day that began cold, and gray,
The woman that I had asked to be my Wife,
Found a solution to my financial strife!
The problem was too close to me,
A way out, I could not see,
But she is far smarter than I,
I am, after all, a guy!
It involves a great sacrifice,
A plan that is so much more than nice!
I had made the situation far too complicated,
In a day, an elegant solution she had created!
Where, before, there had been clutter,
She cut through it, as a warm knife, through butter!
I had begun to wonder not when, but whether,
We would ever live together,
A couple things still must take place,
But she put a smile on my face!
That she would work so hard,
So that we could share a home, and yard,
Brought a tear to my eye,
I am one very lucky guy!
With it, she made a promise to me:
Without her, I will never be!
So, you see, I will get what I am after,
To live with her, in Love and Laughter!
