Congratulations, Breanna and Luke!

The one you love
stands before you today
making promises for life
to love and to stay.
Look in his eyes
and know that it’s true,
that love never dies
and that’s what he feels for you.
The one you love
opens up your heart
and holds it gently
whether together or apart.
Look in her eyes,
and know that it’s true
of all the people on earth,
she chooses you.

Dream Job

To say I would do anything
is an understatement.
I would do everything
and all the unthinkable things
in between.
Loving you
is my only job
and the pay
is greater than
any dollar amount.
But the truth is,
I would work for free
as long as it meant
you’d be next to me.

Congratulations, Brittney and Reynold!

Love
is strange.
Two strangers
soon become friends
become lovers,
become mates,
merge souls.
How strange?
Love
is eternal,
when done right
and nourished
and cared for
and able to bloom,
eternity soon seems
not long enough indeed.
Love
can be
a poem,
a song,
a feeling,
a look,
an action,
a vow,
a ring,
and just near
everything.
Love
can be
cruel,
painful,
brutal
honest,
mean,
heart-breaking,
breathless,
more difficult
than anything.
Love
is not easy
but when you know
it’s right,
there is never a time
when it’s not worth
the fight.
