The Proposal

The Proposal long poem

Uploaded by Aashish Barnwal


I close my eyes, I see a face,
Time has passed at a splendid pace,
It was a scorching sunny day,
With rains of happiness on the way,
A day to remember, a day to dare,
I was to promise a whole life to care,
A red rose in hand and hundred evenings of hope,
Balloons of happiness and dreams unfold,
They call it the day of romance,
Day of luck, or the day to take a chance,

And then, there she was, in ruby red attire,
Stunning, soignè and glowing in necklace blue sapphire,
Right beside me, standing,
In a place solemn and serene,
Her raven hair tightened with a pinky velvet ribbon,
She never looked so beautiful, needless to mention,
Memories started rolling, like a flashback soon,
How I waited for hours all the way,
And her one glimpse would make my day,
Her rosy lips, her charming face,
Her eyes with an ocean depth,
Her infectious smile,
Those cute dimples little,
Raven tress, nose pointing like knife,
As if the statue of Aphrodite came to life,

With all the love I had for her,
I walked towards her,
My heart was beating like drums,
My eyes were swinging under blanket of dreams,
With some dare in eyes,
And love in heart king size,
I bent down on one knee,
Took her hand in my hand,
Oh my dear, will you be mine?
I will stand by your side till the last sunshine,
My love for you will never fade,
Be it mountains of happiness or sorrows’ shade,
No one would love me like you do,
That’s why I wanna live forever with you,
No matter how many fights between us would happen,
We will always make it right, our world won’t be shaken,
You would always find me there,
In every moment of joy and each moment of despair,
You make me love you so easy,
It has become part of me rather than a necessity,
Being with you rejuvenate me in such a way,
Morning has brought hope in its every ray,
A little tiny world of ours, I aspire,
You are someone to me, for whom I respire,
This is a little tough decision, I know,
For we can’t predict everything now,
I promise, you would never find yourself alone,
Just say you love me, I asked in calm tone,

And then to my surprise,
I saw tears rolling out her eyes,
She was holding a heart,
Which was not mine,
She said, with a sigh,
We do not make a good pair, you and I,
All lyrics of songs, we kept on listening were unspoken,
Ah! All in vain, the heart was broken,
I heard a small crack somewhere,
I wonder if anyone would even care,
Collapsed and sunken were my eyes,
Silent and tearless were my cries,
I was left alone with shattered feelings,
For heart was punctured with iron drillings,
As moon shies from the sun,
I shared my love with no one,
Then I realized, even moon is alone,
Did it ever love someone?
