Yes, I do!

Peals of laughter
Squeals of delight
Roar of approval
Love was in the air!

In bounded a knight
Clutching something tight
Surprised there were many
As he went down on one knee!

Eternity passed before she said yes
Then the skies rained confetti
They shared a kiss
A sight not to miss!

Smiles were exchanged
Champagne freely flowed
Asked “Do you know what you will do?”
They chorused “Yes, I do; Yes, I do” !

Background: Past few years I have been in touch with college classmates thanks to WhatsApp group created by an enterprising mate from my batch. With many folks working or doing business all over the world whenever someone is visiting India friends meet and generally have a good time eating, drinking and making merry. So it was when a batchmate working in the USA visited India couple of years ago. This guy was the only bachelor in our group and many of us married guys used to pull his leg. He was a sport and falling in love with a girl or woman every other day. An informal coed get together was organized. On the eve of the meeting when our confirmed bachelor friend announced he was going to propose to another batchmate our first reaction was “Yeah, right!” 😀 It’s not common for 50-something batchmate to propose to another batchmate at a get together. The day of the meet arrived and as the evening wore on there were photos being posted on WhatsApp group. All friends who could meet were having a jolly good time. Finally the moment arrived. Our man proposed and the lady accepted! As more photos of celebration were posted it was time for some Raj silly verse to celebrate. Above is that attempt. I had decided it had to end with “Yes, I do” 🙂 The challenge was working my way backwards and capture the spirit of the occasion.
