I Asked Her To Marry Me

A lady was waiting for a route taxi by the roadway.

I stood beside her and she smiled at me.

We were the only ones standing there.

I said hello to the lovely lady and smiled back at her.

She displayed a pleasant personality.

I asked the lady her name and she replied, “Minnie.”

And I said, “That’s a nice name.”

Then, as she was anticipating, I told her my name.


I started a warm conversation with Minnie.

We chitchatted for a few minutes.

I wanted to see Minnie again, so I asked her.

She agreed to meet me at a plaza in Half Way Tree.

I went out with her in May, June, and July.

The hours and the days swiftly flew by.

Minnie and I met often and we had fun.

We were burning with passion for each other.


The selector was playing soul music at the party.

Minnie said, “That’s my favourite song!”

I asked her if she’d like to dance and she said, “Okay.”

We went outside and held each other closely.

I wanted to kiss her and she said, “Go ahead.”

When I told Minnie that I loved her,

She whispered, “I love you too” in my ear.

And she said yes when I asked her to marry me.
