A Summer Wedding
The summer sun beats down
Glowing rays shimmering through the air
Each bouncing off the gown
As the Groom at his Bride does stare.
Engulfed in golden aura she walks
On a sea of pale rose petals
They rise behind her as she passes
to scatter about before they settle.
Her rhythmic step is sure
and oh, so very measured
She knows the prize she walks towards
Is one that must be treasured.
While he upon her gazes
And counts himself a lucky man
He sees before him their life’s journey,
A great and divine plan.
The row of seats to either side
While full of family and friends
Has faded from his sight
As his vision of her transcends
But a moment has passed all this while
Though much has been conveyed
She reaches by his side now
As both their emotions cascade.
Their hands are clasped together tightly
Their eyes locked in intimate embrace
The sound of the celebrant barely audible
As their fingers interlace.
The weight of gold upon their fingers
Hearts rise to meet each other
An unending circle of their love
Their promise to forsake all others.
They turn to face the sea
Of happy and smiling faces
As husband and wife, together
They now take their first paces.
