I have often wondered 
what an athlete thinks
when the finish line
is in sight do
they remember all of
the pain and sacrifice
all of the missed
memories and lost opportunities
or do they think
soon soon I will
triumph and then celebrate
These same feelings are
for those who propose
hoping they will hear
yes to their question

So, what did you think?
