A poem to celebrate the wedding of Miss Yllisa and Master Loimos, about the day a lad makes the bold decision to declare his love for a lass!

Should I?

Choices will I face today
Decisions soon will come my way
Thinking, should I, all the while
So should I frown, or should I smile?

Should I snooze, or should I rise
And wipe the sleep from weary eyes?
Should I put on something smart
Or clothes that soon will fall apart?

Should I pour a cup of tea
And sweeten it, one lump or three?
Should I stay sat in my chair
Or should I take the morning air?

Should I walk amongst the trees
Or in the fields to feel the breeze?
Should I keep along the track
Or turn around and wander back?

Should I strike a steady pace
Or stride ahead as in a race?
Should I pause outside her gate
And worry if I should be late?

Should I knock upon her door
To knock one time, and then once more?
Should I greet her with a hug
Or shyly smile and give a shrug?

Should I stare into her eyes
Or turn to my gaze towards the sky?
Should I care the sky's not blue
And should I dare say...
..."I love you"?
