She placed his gift softly under the tree.
Placing the gift as if to decorate the tree with it…
No hindrance to the sparkling lights
It’s placement a presentation of love
Will he notice that it’s special?
Will he see that she picked the box for him?
Will he observe the decorations around making it look special?
The sounds of caroling behind the frosted window glass
Set the mood as he walked in the door
He became breathless at the stunning display
As his eyes met the vivid depiction of her heart
He saw the package presented as her heart’s pedestal
Except only he could see and hold the key
As it was the product of her feelings
It was the offering of her life as his and vice versa
He did notice.
He did see.
He did observe.
She presented an ultrasound.
He presented a ring.
