I wrote a poem for a wedding couple called How We all got to be Here, and it covers the grooms proposal. Always a great way to break the ice and it now seems to be a standard request from couples.
How we all got to be here
It started in Crossfit Gym Mornington, where they both worked
Little did we know a spark of light was hidden and quietly lurked
At a competition in Rosebud, both having a good time
And Jared made his move with a dreadful pick up line
He lifted up a camera, getting ready for the next step
Can you believe he actually flexed his right bicep?
He plucked up the courage, he was just as cool as ice
Asked her out not one, not even twice, but thrice
Still Sara said no, but as a mans man Jared said “that’s fine”
He went and asked her to breakfast, for the 4th time
Thankfully she said yes, this angel from above
But it wasn’t until the 2nd date, that Jared fell in love
The way she ate her spare ribs his head and heart twirled
Here was a beauty, without a single care in the world
The Superman Rollercoaster, he was flying on one wing
It was there he decided to produce the special ring
Sara was crying and jumping caught up in the total flow
She never answered him, but took the ring though
Will you marry me he asked for the 4th time, honest & frank
Poor Sara thought the whole moment was a bit of a prank
Yes she exclaimed with joy, as she melted into his arms
Here was the man to protect her and fill her life with charms
Holding hands the journey together started, full of life and cheer
And that Ladies & Gentlemen, is how we all got to be here.
