'Love' by Lyn Martin

Engagement means I can get married

It means I am in love

I can wear a ring on my left finger

My engagement finger

The ring means love

It means for the rest of my life

A promise to stay together

It means marriage

And a promise to stay until you die

Together in life.

I would like this engagement as soon as possible

Saturday would be good

I would like it to happen in my house

And all I would like him to say is

‘I love you’

We’d drink champagne out of tall glasses

And the toast would be

‘Let’s stay together for the rest of our lives’

We would drink to the future.
