The Engagement Haiku

I found you a ring
Of pink, white, and yellow gold.
Matching your necklace.

They need your ring size
To order it from Europe.
It can not be stretched.

The "M"-word scares me.
"Commitment" makes me panic.
But I adore you.

There are still issues,
Things that we must determine.
But I adore you.

Though they will take work,
I have confidence in us:
We will resolve them.

And in the meantime,
I want to reserve the spot
Closest to your heart.

I love you.  You fit.
You make me laugh hard out loud.
You bring tears of joy.

James A. DeLaHunt,
You are quite perfect enough.
Will you marry me?
