Do you suppose that Cupid planned my Fate?
And that I only learned it far too late?
Did he search the whole World over, just for you?
Knowing that I could not resist the things you do?
Or, did he change you into someone that I could not resist?
And that I would be a goner once we kissed?
Did he make you far too lovely to look upon?
And once I held you, all my sense would be gone?
Are you really, really what I see?
Or, are you just what I want you to be?
Can a man truly find the object of his dreams?
Can Love really be as lovely as this seems?
Until these questions are answered, I will stay,
Saying grateful prayers, for every single day,
I have no idea what I might have done,
That would have earned me the Love of The One,
The One that makes my world turn around,
The One that keeps my feet clear of the ground,
The One that has transformed my Life,
The One that has consented to be my Wife!
