The Joke (Her Perspective)

Writer’s Note: This is a continuation of my post last week, The Joke (His Perspective).

It all started as a joke, a tease here and there
Somehow it was only me who actually cared
You treated me as if I was a mere stranger
So I moved on, lived my life like you weren’t there

Then I almost lost my life battling an illness
A blessing in disguise that lead to your awareness
The joke was on me as I was always helpless
Been helplessly wishing for your love and caress

This joke I hope you’ll take it very seriously
As I return your kiss and hug you tenderly
I’ve been yours from the start, you’re my one and only
Until my last breath, please promise to stay with me

The Joke (His Perspective)

It all started as a joke, a tease here and there
From our friends, our families – it was everywhere
I ignored all these – didn’t budge, didn’t care
I continued my life as a boy with a dare

Then something dawned on me which I cannot undo
I was no longer the oblivious boy you knew
The joke was on me as I win your love anew
So please believe me when I tell you “yes, I do”

This joke now I’m taking very seriously
As I put this ring on you and kiss you tenderly
As I make this vow to love you endlessly
Say yes, be mine forever, my one and only
