My Best Adventure
I have walked many bumpy roads in life,
I ran into trials, obstacles and strife
As I celebrate this special day,
To my best adventure I have this to say:
Many prayers I have said,
Most of them seem unheard
But God works in mysterious ways,
And I learnt that it pays to pray.
He protected me when I struggled,
Gave me courage when I mumbled
His timing is perfect, that is His nature,
He answered my prayers through my best Adventure
My best adventure taught me Kindness,
Brighten my home with Humility,
Filled my sight with prudence,
And for this, I lift my head with dignity.
Though I am not yet the man I prayed to be,
I have faith this adventure will shape me.
And I could never be more thankful,
Believe me, this blessing is plentiful.
I will let my adventure lead the way,
See the world before my eyes surrender
Make the best of life before time flies away
Color, with memories, each day on my calendar.
Now, there is a proverb I will never disparage.
“There is no cure for love other than marriage”
That is why today I say to you as I bend a knee,
You are my best adventure; Will you marry me?
I composed this poem for my now fiancée on the day, with the help of our family and friends, I did a surprise proposal for her on my birthday dinner.
