The night, was such a Treasure Trove night!
Their eyes were sparkling, in the light!
Even though, they were all alone,
they spoke in a soft, melodic tone.
A single red rose, to pledge his devotion.
She gives her, hearts-key, to reflect his emotion!
A soft blue-velvet box, he puts in her palm.
Although she's excited, she tries to stay calm!
She opens it slowly, a brilliant diamond's inside,
he caresses her warmly, and speaks , slowly with pride!
"If you'll be my wife, I will truely be blessed"!
She throws her arms round him, and whispers, Yes, darling, Yes!
