A Love Poem, Free Verse
Yesterday, I married you

You saw me standing at the top of the stairs
I smiled
What absolute adoration I saw in your eyes
Locked on mine as you bounded up the stairs
Anxious to make me your wife

I held out my hand for you to lead me down the steps
My fingers trembling in your warm grasp
Cheeks stained with a hectic blush of anticipation
My blush for you only

We walked hand in hand through the throng of guests
All thoughts of a processional and any protocol lost to this moment
This moment

Yesterday, you married me

What words did the Reverend say? I don't remember them anymore
I only remember your reply to him, after you said 'I do'
That not even death would part you from your angel

And what did I say in return, my darling?
That I take you as my Love, my Husband
Forever and Always

Yesterday was the beginning of a lifetime together
Of Love and Laughter and Growth
Of Caring and Sharing and Trust
Of Sweet Surrender

Yesterday, we married each other
With Gratitude
For our Yesterdays that brought us to this point
And for our Tomorrows yet to be
