I woke up to the bright sunlight streaming in through the windows,
I slowly sat up,
And looked around.
Immediately the previous days events came rushing into my thoughts.
We had a lot of plans for the day.
He was supposed to come home and pick me up in the morning,
And we were going to spend the entire day together.
This was something I was really looking forward to.
But he called me up to tell me that he couldn’t make it,
And I was highly disappointed.
So I decided to go some place,
And not stay home alone.
So I went over to my best friend’s place,
And fortunately she was at home.
We spent the morning together watching a movie,
And had lunch outside.
We sat in her house reviving childhood memories and school days.
It was time for me to leave,
But she said she’d accompany me home to meet my parents.
So both of us left to my house on our respective vehicles.
She stood behind me as I unlocked the door.
The minute I stepped in,
The lights went on and everyone yelled “Surprise!”.
All my friends and his friends were here,
And so was our family.
I just stood there in awe,
As my best friend walked past me to join them,
And she grinned at me.
He stood there looking at me,
With a victorious smile.
I walked towards them,
And looked around the house.
It was beautifully decorated with flowers and balloons.
My favorite song played in the back drop,
As they held the words “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” for him.
He stepped forward still smiling,
Went down on one knee,
Held a ring out for me,
And asked me if I would be his.
I said yes as tears of joy rolled down my cheeks.
We hugged and I smiled at the others blinking back tears.
He wiped my tears and pulled me forward,
And took me to a table decorated with candles and gifts.
It had a cake in between which read “Happy Birthday Love!”
“This is my birthday gift for you……”,
He whispered in my ear,
As I hugged him once again.
The rest of the evening was a buzz.
It was the most amazing birthday anyone could ask for.
Waking up to this beautiful memory made me smile.
I looked down at my ring,
And kissed it.
I felt like the luckiest girl in existence.
I had a wonderful future ahead of me,
With the most amazing guy on the planet,
The love of my life.
This life that lay ahead is definitely a dream come true.
