Finally (Part 2)
As if ice is sliding within his veins
he shakes nervously at the altar
as he waits for his bride, anxious thoughts
begin to fill his mind.
Hoping not to forget and stumble over his vows,
Hoping that no one will notice the ketchup stain
he’s attempting to hide under his tie.
He wonders if he’s even worthy of her.
Everyone looks at the beginning of the aisle
as the pianist plays Wedding March.
He takes a deep breath as he sees
the love of his life approach him.
Her flowery, white dress flows
along with her dark hair as
she gracefully walks toward the altar.
She’s holding bright yellow flowers,
and wearing her biggest smile.
A tear comes to the groom’s eye.
The shaking stops
the anxious thoughts silence.
Seeing her luminous smile,
her excitement as they make eye contact;
he realizes no matter what mistakes he makes
she’ll still love him.
She finally reaches the altar,
the music fades.
This is it, this is the moment
when forever begins.
