We are officially engaged! I gave her the ring this evening, and then the things that happen when one proposes happened. Happiness ensues…

_The dreary days come and go

And then the dreary days come and go again

Life will never be gentle or kind

Nor will it be important or spectacular

There’s never ending turmoil in my mind

Trying to understand what I can’t

I try my best, but I’ll never win

So why do I suffer through it all

When I could live in eternal peace?

I’ll tell you why…

The days are less dreary when you are around

Life is spectacular when shared with you

And your presence brings clarity

To an otherwise cloudy thing that we call life

Look me in the eyes._
