We were loading,
Or was it unloading,
Stuff from the back of the car
I said "Yes"
It had taken me five months;
I needed to be sure.
The fact that he waited patiently
Made me all the more certain.
Before we had the right moment
To mention it to my parents
My elder sister and her boyfriend arrived.
Her boyfriend went up to our parents' room
To ask for her hand in marriage.
We couldn't believe it,
There was no way we could say anything,
