As the news of your spring wedding
Down into my ears trickled
I longed and hoped
I asked for just one chance;
One chance to look into your beautiful bold eyes
To stare deep and not break the gaze
With hands intertwined and say
I am in love with you.
One chance to reminisce
Years spent in each other’s embrace
To gather in a time-glass our precious moments
And store for our unborn children a great love story
With our back on the ground and face to the stars
To grow old together and be buried side by side.
One chance for you to step into the birth-room
And help unfurl our angels
To share our sorrows and joys alike
To smile in triumph over the fights we overcame to be together.
And be assured that together we will win the future.
One chance to wake up from this dream
And not hear of your precious bride
To cherish the possibility
That together we will always be
To say I’ll always love you.
One chance to realize that it’s not too late
To wish all the sadness away
And all the tears cease.
To meet our parents and their blessings obtain
One last chance to say “till death do us part”
PS: I wrote these lines on your wedding eve
PPS: I realize I can never love you as much as you deserve hence like a bird not designed not be caged, I am glad I let you fly.
