A teen's touching "promposal" to her friend with Down syndrome is going viral on Facebook after it was captured on video.

Lillie Wright, 17, surprised her friend and co-worker Trevor Jefferson, 21, at Beau's Coffee in Wilmington, North Carolina, on April 25 by asking him to prom with a cute coffee-themed poem written on a sign.

"I like coffee, I like tea. Would you go to prom with me?" Lillie's sign reads.

In the video, Trevor reads the poem aloud and responds with an enthusiastic "Yes." The two share a hug while surrounded by friends and family.

Lillie's mother, Amy Wright, owner of Beau's Coffee, filmed the whole thing.

"Lillie's decision to ask Trevor was completely natural, she has two siblings with Down syndrome," Wright said. "Lillie values Trevor as a person and a friend.... Everyone at Beau's Coffee loves Trevor and was happy to share in the moment."

Since the video was posted, the promposal has garnered more than 400,000 views on Facebook.
