The Wedding

 

 

Thunder hangs heavy

wedding bells bang their

 

clanging peal

 

The guests on scattered lawn

array in prefect shade.

 

Bride & groom align

to whisper words that’ve

 

always been

 

‘’I do, I do, & once again I do’’.

 

Through sparkling glass

the music turns its first eclipse

 

the veil of morning splits:

 

& I’m returned to memory’s

chain, I’m standing here alone

 

again, with you.

 

 

They party through the night

& break the dawn

 

I toss & turn a life where

nothing yet was broken

 

the circle still inscribed

the children at our side

 

& no one ever loved me

as you do.

 

A wedding under thunder

& a lightning sky

 

when both of us were tender

those simple words they caught us:

 

‘’I do, I do, I bind us; until we die

let nothing break asunder’’

 

& by God we tried

that other wedding morning.
