(Every once in a while, there comes a time,
When all you can do is, um… rhyme?)
So, here goes:
A little breathless, a little dazed,
Utterly ecstatic and still amazed.
He got down on bended knee,
Opened a tiny gray box with glee.
Rockefeller Rink, snowflakes fell,
Applause from the crowd began to swell.
The tree sparkled and so did the ring,
Of course my heart started to sing.
Yes, I said, drinking happiness, as if from a cup.
He grinned and grinned…then asked if I could help him up.
Thank you to friends and family for your well-wishes. And thank you, Rob, for a night, a dream-like scenario, a brief yet infinite moment I will never forget.
