On her knee
As the snow started to fall creating a very cold day he was out looking for a few dozen long stemmed red roses for the beautiful woman whom he loved and was ready on this very day to ask her to marry him but on the way home he saw a homeless woman and her daughter so he stopped what he was doing bought them a hot meal then handed the flowers to the mother who said they were pretty and bought the little girl some toys and clean clothes then without hesitation brought them home where as soon as she seen what his heart had done got down on her knee and instead asked him to marry her and their once upon a time ended up being a happily ever after for all four of them.
