A poem about my wife's consent to my marital proposal

My love at long last

345886by Joseph C Ogbonna10 Mar 2020

Sometime in December,
2008, our magnetic gaze of love
did more than just speak or act.
It was in wedlock consummated.
And like a dream, ten years have
gone by, as our tender fruits of
affection continue to sprout daily.

Continue to rest on my shoulder
until the sun on our wedlock sets.
