by Lucas Scott – “One tree hill”
for it is the beginning of always.
Like a reward for persisting
through life so long alone.
A belief in each other and
the possibility of love.
A decision to ignore,
simply rise above the pain of the past.
which at once binds two souls and
yet severs prior ties.
A celebration of the chance taken
and the challenge that lies ahead.
For two will always be stronger than one,
like a team braced against
the tempest civil world.
And love will always be
the guiding force in your lives.
For tonight is mere formality.
Only an announcement
to the world of feelings long held.
Promises made long ago.
In the sacred spaces of your hearts.
This is one of my favorite poems and with it I’d like to say congratulations to
May you have a wonderful life together!
