Words for Cara

The Proposal

             scenes, music, and the words Jason spoke to Cara as he proposed

wrapped up in you

 

I want all my memories

to be wrapped up in you

like trumpet joy and beating hope

perfectly on cue

the kites of dreams and summer walks

in branches of your arms

like thunderous nights and glimpse of light

of love's persistent storm

 

I want the roaring laughter

and the world's utmost frustrations

burning with imagined lands

and simple realizations

while streams collide of death and life

and mercy forms the dew

I want all my memories

to be wrapped up in you

inside the frame

 

see all the colors running

two restless hearts becoming wonderful

look up and keep from blinking

live life with wishful thinking

dream with me

 

'cause I will stay inside the frame

always

 

strong wills might bend the middle

our smiles may smudge a little over time

but there is no way to capture

the depth of hope and laughter you bring me

 

I will stay inside the frame

always

 

and when my days are fading

and all my words escape me

I'll look back

on all these shelves and albums

reminding me: we held on to our love

 

and I will stay inside the frame

oh, I will stay inside the frame

always
