Forgotten Proposal

He was getting up in years,
His memory had gone south.
He’d forget what he was thinking
Before it even reached his mouth.

Last week he’d asked Maybell
If she would be his bride.
He couldn’t think what she had said,
No matter how he tried.

So he quickly wrote a letter
To see just what was so.
“When I asked if you would marry me,
Did you say yes or no?”

He got a letter back next day,
Addressed to Pete or Fred.
Her memory was as bad as his,
‘Cause this is what she said.

“I thank you for the letter,
For I didn’t know what to do.
I did say yes to someone
And I’m glad that it was you!”
