There once was a gorilla
That fell for a giraffe.
She surprised him by how much
She could make him laugh.

The two, you see,
Were from different worlds
Their first date, so nervous,
He’d certainly hurl.

In spite of their differences,
It was love at first sight.
His feelings grew quickly,
His heart took to flight.

The gorilla, his life,
Unpolished and scattered
Now refined and focused
On those things that matter.

There were simply no words
For how lucky he’d gotten.
Without her by his side
Life would surely be rotten.

It’s hard to believe
Just how happy they were.
He could not imagine
Even one day without her

So he got on one knee
And uttered the plea:
“My dearest giraffe,
Will you marry me?”

He felt his heart beating
Right out of his chest.
He could do nothing but wait
And hope she’d say YES.

When she finally answered
He could not stop grinning
Because he knew, in his heart,
This was just The Beginning!

22. Of course, after something this adorable, Erika had to say yes.
