I sat with hussy in church, covered in goosebumps, as the bridal entourage walked in. K, with the other 2 best men, escorting the bridemaids, the rise and fall of the music, the poignancy of the words and the feeling of anticipation in the air. Having grown up watching cartoons and movies, the concept of “forever” was always this one.
The trailing white wedding dress,
the “till death do us part” type vows
the high ceilinged church and eventually,
the bride and groom dancing on soft
romantic songs late into the night,
under a sparkling canopy of stars.
with a start like this,
now wonder they lived happily ever after.
