Almost three years ago, I saw the love of my life for the first time, across the crowded congregation of my church. I was absolutely mesmerized, for she was the most beautiful thing I had ever laid my eyes on. Every night I failed to sleep because I couldn’t get her out of my head. I was overcome with anticipation for every Sunday morning when I could see her face again.
This insomnia and loneliness spent wishing we were together went on for about a month. Then, a friend of mine, and a pastor at the church told me he knew of someone who had a “crush” on me, and he eventually even told me her name. She knew of me because I was the keyboard player at our church, but I didn’t know her, because our church is absolutely enormous. I didn’t think too much about it, other than the fact that I knew her sister, who is very beautiful. Although it probably wasn’t the best idea, I had already built up a picture in my head of my dream girl and I being together, even though I didn’t know her, and had very little odds of meeting her with how big our congregation is. However, later that day I did type her name into the search bar on facebook’s website. I couldn’t believe my eyes, or the odds of it, but the girl I found on facebook was my dream girl! My heart leaped in my chest and I was absolutely overwhelmed with joy and astonishment. It took all of my energy not to do something rash with the knowledge that I had of our mutual feelings.
Our love grew rapidly, and I quickly realized that she was the person I have always been looking for to share my life with. I started saving for a ring after our first anniversary, and started working ridiculous hours to save money. The summer before I proposed, I spent two months writing the music and lyrics to a “proposal song.” It is called “Yours Forever.” It summarizes our relationship in a nutshell and explains how much I am head over heels in love with her. After another month or so of practicing the finished product I had a couple of friends set up some cameras, and set the ring inside the piano. She thought we were going to a church service, but I really just wanted to propose in the same room that I met the love of my life.
