Like a pebble dropped into a pond
my thoughts go out to all around.
My thoughts are quite, quite silent,
dispersing ripples with no sound.
Two stones hit the water now.
double circles undulating round.
your thoughts mixed with mine
but still they do not make a sound.
But then you speak.
I hear your voice.
My heart it fills
with great rejoice.
The circles rush,
like waters falling,
because I hear
that you are calling.
And then you sing so sweet a melody
And then I feel, like some epiphany.
Your song of love that brings me to my knee
And then I ask, if will you marry me?
You answer, yes. My joy complete.
I stand again on unsure feet.
But we both know, it cannot be.
For I am four, and you are three.
I’ll ask again in twenty years
For now, just wipe away our tears.
And we just hope that it will be,
That we may live in harmony.
