And then my heart began to long.
And saw how well our love could last.
Through many days of thick and thin
I can still remember when,
Our softened lips met for the first,
Quenching an undying thirst.
It seems as though there's been more sad,
But 'tis harder when remembering glad.
I know that times were sometimes hard,
And left your heart with many scars.
But things have changed and so have we,
It's obvious we're meant to be.
I have not beauty, nor great richess
To give to you my darling princess.
But if you'll see past all the latter
And take the time to see what matters,
You'll know that what I say is true,
And know that I will always love you.
I'll swear it now before the Lord,
And love you now, forever more.
And although I've got no ring for thee,
My dear beloved, will you marry me?
