He saves up three weeks' wages to buy her that necklace she fancied.
She doesn't ask for much.
He longs to get back home from work.
Her heart throbs with excitement at hearing the front door being unlocked.
His fatigue is soothed at the sight of her smile.
Her eyes become watery and her hands fragile as she opens the velvet box.
He fixes his gaze at her.
She is lost for words. (She is never lost for words)
She sits beside him and speaks in a clear, elegant manner.
He is almost squinting as he smiles whilst murmuring how he knew she'd like it.
His dream is to make her happy.
Her wish is to be eternally in love with him.
