The proposal I never got…

9 Comments

I knew when I saw him he was what I wanted. And I said it when I saw him, “that’s gonna be my husband one day.”

Perhaps I didn’t know I was sealing my fate by speaking those words. I was only 17 years old, a senior in high school, just excited to see such a handsome face.

Little did I know I had to wait 14 years for that day, but it didn’t come with a proposal, or a ring, just our vows written on paper.  We had two witnesses, his friend & mine & and a minister under the gazebo on a misty, rainy day.

Ironically, I waited 14 years to marry him and our marriage lasted 14 years, until he departed me through death.

Goodbye my love, my one true love.  I hope you are in eternal peace.

But I reminisce to say that I may never get to experience the marriage proposal but it’s ok, I guess.  I loved him anyway.

  2. May I simply just say what a comfort to find somebody that actually understands what they’re
    talking about online. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. A lot more people should read this and understand this
    side of your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular given that you most certainly have the gift. http://www.gzxinhuang.com/

    blog posts in this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually
    stumbled upon this website. Reading this info So i am happy to express that I have an incredibly just right uncanny feeling I came upon just what I needed.
