A Whispered Yes

The following short poem is not my own creation but expresses my feelings following my engagement to Lisa earlier this month:

A Whispered Yes

Stunning sometimes to ponder
that all my future knowing
and all my future doing
will be a knowing-with and doing-for;
that you love me enough,
and love me yet,
to whisper me a Yes with your life.

The poem is one of many written by John Piper for his wife Noël, some of which have been collected in his book Velvet Steel: The Joy of Being Married to You.
