A forgotten proposal

Jack and Jill were residents at a home for the elderly in Penzance,

They'd known each other for ages and both liked a dance.

One evening while they were doing the samba Jack blurted out,"Will you marry me Jill?"

Without any hesitation Jill gave a quick reply,"Of course I will !"

Jack skipped to his room feeling really happy,

But when he woke up in the morning he felt really crappy.

He had completely forgotten," Did she say yes or did she say no ?"

So round to her room he quickly did go.

" I 'm glad you came round,I knew someone had proposed while we did the samba,

As to who that person was,I couldn't rememba !"

Brilliantly expressed with stark imagery.
Working with confused elderly, I find confusion can be overwhelming.

Well done Hugh !
