My heart said
We have to move fast
My head said it’s not so
That love can exist
Without a piece of paper
To bind us
But still I wanted to be
 Beside you
Cohabit with you
Be with you
That hunger guided me
To your side
I found you felt the same
The proposal so soon
Didn’t come as a surprise
But a blessing in disguise
Three weeks they claimed
We can’t know each other well
They’re wrong,
They couldn’t see
That I know you 
To the centre of your soul
For you are an open book
Your eyes the window
You are the part
I didn’t know I was missing
A partner to love me
To support and comfort me
To see the good
The bad
The best of me
In all times
You’ve been there
How lucky can I be?
