Myra smoothed her hair back one last time, Abel would be there shortly to pick her up for their date. He said he had a surprise for her to celebrate her finishing her first year at WilTech.
"Here, this is for you," her father said smiling as he handed her a package.
She was confused, it wasn't her birthday and there wasn't a reason for the gift.
"Just open it,"
Inside the large box was small envelope.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
This is where a young me,
Fell in love with you.
Myra smiled and rushed out the door. When she arrived the small playground, she could hear the echos of their youth in her head.
"Myra! I have something for you!"
Myra turned to see Ana Rayne running her way.
The little girl handed her a sticky envelope and Myra opened it.
Here is where you craft
trinkets that bring joy
to every little girl
and every little boy.
When Myra arrived to the Toy Shoppe, she was expecting the envelope.
Under the moon light,
with an ocean breeze
waiting for you
is where you'll find me
Myra practically ran to the pier and stopped short when she saw the scene in front of her.
There was Abel, backlit by a small fire and on either side their families.
She walked towards him and he met her halfway before dropping to his knees.
Myra melted and when he presented her with her mother's engagement ring, she wanted to cry.
"Of course, yes, yes!"
"Are you excited?"
"Very much, I can't wait for us to be married."
