The moonlight shines down on her face.
Tense eyes, pink lips, blushed
Cheeks, starless night

He trembles and stutters and
Grins as he reaches into his pocket
Seconds are minutes, minutes are days

She looks down at his crooked smile
Concealing thoughts long unanswered
As their sights meet and the unknown was revealed.

The whole world becomes silent
He holds his breath as he waits for an
Answer. It all vanishes

Her face lights up at the prospect.
Her impending future before her eyes
