Default Leap of Faith

I asked her to marry the best way I know how.

There are some nights I will piss you off,
and other nights I will make you piss your pants,
whatever the case may be,
I hope that you can handle that,
live with me,
through the days I cry,
the "hate my life's",
and the "wonder why's",
and let me be there for you,
in just the same way,
when life's a losing game,
and you don't want to play,
I want to wake up next to you,
with no make up at all,
and stare until you wake up,
because you're so beautiful,
and with our dragon's breath,
& messed up hair,
we'll make out anyway,
because we don't fucking care,
I'll go out of my way,
and interrupt you at work,
with a pot full of orchids,
because I'm that kind of jerk,
I'll stand by your side,
even when I know you're wrong,
and be standing there still,
when friends and family are long gone,
I'll protect you for life,
with my words or my hands,
I'll be more than your friend,
and I'll be more than your man,
now and forever,
if you'll give me your hand,
til the hour glass shatters & spills,
every last grain of sand,
I've never looked more forward to anything,
than the day that I turn 52,
because there's no one who can say a damn thing about it,
and I can finally be with you,
and rest assured,
until that day is tomorrow,
I'll be the one thing of yours,
that no one will borrow,
you'll be the first woman,
to lay hands on me in forever,
and that night will be one,
we both will remember,
I'll be the first man to touch you,
in the last 30 years,
and those passionate moments,
will be so hot it sears,
but to make sure that you,
remain mine to that day,
I'll take what I know about caution,
and I'll throw it away,
I'm going on and on,
because I'm nervous to ask,
because I might come out on top,
or I might look like an ass,
I've stepped to the edge,
and in moments I'll leap,
I've been thinking about this,
and it's cost me some sleep,
all my life, since childhood, I knew,
there'd be that one-in-a-million that I'd lose my heart to,
and spend the days of my life with,
and now I know that it's you,
so I really don't know,
what I'm waiting for,
but I know I can't do this,
to myself anymore,
I will bear you proud always,
for the whole world to see,
If you will take my hand as I leap,
and just say "yes", you will marry me (?)

She said "Um"!

....then about a minute later, she said "YES"!
"I don't care about your past, I care about the future we're going to make together."
