Not much of a poet, but I wrote this to explain why I asked a girl, Giuliana, to be my wife…
We visited Prague on our first holiday as a couple, placing a ‘love lock’ on a small bridge, beneath the famous Charles Bridge (Karlův most). Returning a year later, we visited the bridge again to find our ‘love lock’ had evolved to that you see above.
I asked a girl…
On a cold winters night in a fairytale city, I asked a girl, oh so pretty…
I asked a girl to share one heart, forever united, never to part.
I asked a girl to bestow her trust, put faith in our love, pure and just.
I asked a girl to just simply be, never to change, nor change me.
I asked a girl to remain my friend, hold hands tightly, right to the end.
I asked a girl to journey with me, excitement abound, what would we see?
I asked the girl to complete my life, share all that I am, to be my wife.
Thankfully, she said yes!
