Our Love: A Poem

Our Love


A young boy

10 years old

becomes a man

his childhood gone forever

a teenager’s world

falls apart

as she becomes a woman

their mother

no longer a wife

weeps…


10 Years Later


You are both here

at my side

this special day

as you have been

these last ten years

I look at you both

and feel pride

in the adults you’ve become


Source
Source

you hold your heads high

confident and strong

we walked 10 years

a long, long road

hand in hand

too far to walk alone


I stand at the top of the stairs

in my long white dress

how special my son

you chose it with me

heads turned in the bridal shop

to see you there

the memory makes me smile


my daughter

the flowers you carry

match mine

you look so beautiful

so caring

my perfect bridesmaid

my darling you


I see your love for me

in your eyes

I see your happiness for me

in your smiles

I know of no words

to describe how

that means the world to me


I see your upturned face

smiling, full of emotion

I wipe away a tear

as I walk down those stairs

you take my hand

my childhood sweetheart

our time is now and forever
