“The Romantic Proposal”

My grandfather once said,
“Love is not a feeling. But an ability.”
Between my able mind and your able heart,
there lives a rare tranquility,

Supernatural in one moment
so earthly simple the next,
Tracing the lines of your tender palms
is like reading a sacred text,

Breath, bone, flesh, and blood
we’re no more than godly dust,
I’ve been quietly seeking love’s meaning
and I believe I’ve found its thrust,

Reluctance is a terrible thing to carry
from sins and hurts of the past,
Go on, compare me to all the others
but I beseech you to contrast,

Their many pros to my several cons
I won’t ask you for the difference,
Just come walk with me and talk with me
Your heart will make its inference,

Buried beneath this summer’s romance
Arisen feelings may seem so recent,
But Robert Redford had it all wrong–
My proposal is highly decent,

One day a laugh, one night a cry
to relinquish the emotional debris,
We’ll take it a shore-walk and hand-hold at a time
And beyond the horizon we’ll see,

That love is not some fleeting feeling
but, rather, an ability,
And my summer’s romance has little meaning
without you next to me,

It’s Friday, my Love, and I henceforth vow:
Pampering beyond the season,
And when autumn announces summer’s end
We’ll only have more reason,

To continue the blessings of time we’ve shared
For you’ve given me the chance,
To propose we take this ever higher
Beyond our summer’s romance.

Pamper the woman . . . . -Rg2
