Your goofy smile lights up the grayest days
I get lost in your mesmerizing eyes
Your dumb, dorky laugh sends my heart ablaze
And when you fixes your hair, my heart dies

Your voice is so effortlessly charming
Even the birds fly down to hear you speak
Your hugs make my heartbeat’s speed alarming
And your dumb singing will never be bleak

You makes me so happy to be alive
I know you’ll be there for me whenever
Together, there’s nothing we can’t survive
I want this feeling to last forever

I want you to know what you mean to me
By giving you this ring while on one knee

This peace follows the same format that Shakepeare wrote his sonnets, with 10 syllables in each line. I wrote about this topic because I was feeling romantic and wanted to make a cute poem.
