So Bella listened and learned the hard truth, but then
Coming down from a long day’s work was Ben.

He had finally earned enough to buy one special thing.
He held it in his hand; it was a shining golden ring.

Today was the day he planned to tell Bella he loved her,
And ask her to marry him and promise to be true forever.

Anna told Ben what had happened and he knew it was meant to be,
So he took Bella’s hand and got down on one knee.

And that was when Bella realized the truth so strong:
That Ben was the one who she had loved all
