A feeling arose deep inside,
excitement her face would not hide,
she could not help but smile so wide,
anticipation was her guide.
All senses heightened and aware,
followed the zest within the air,
walked out the door without a care,
she found a note just waiting there.
“I have looked forward to this day,
a huge surprise is on the way,
the one you love is here to stay,
meet me at our beloved cafe.”
Her heart was escaping her chest,
she did not know what to expect,
ascending up those concrete steps,
red tulips placed to interject.
Awe held her still, kept her in place,
the warmest lips then kissed her face,
they interlocked in an embrace,
filled with love, light, joy, and bright grace.
