Sir, I come to you asking for your daughter’s hand. You’ve been her biggest supporter, gentle protector and financial comforter. I come to you as a man, asking not only your blessing but the assurance of continuing a value instilled…. as her husband. I wish to love her through every emotional reaching that’ll never question nor replace you as her wall of confidence. Without your importance, her existence would only become a very dream I’d never awaken. She’s the air I breathe, the night shining within me, as I pray you’ll accept my plea this very day. Filling your shoes I’ll never do, trailing your example I shall follow, earning your princess into my possession…… as she becomes the very queen I’ll always need.
May I ask for her hand?
– C.A. Thomas
