Peaceful Sunday….

 

Lovely old church

Fateful Yes
My emotions are too intense to describe;
I could never explain the way I feel,
I've forgotten how to breathe as he takes my hand,
And before me, begins to kneel.
I gaze into his hopeful eyes
And feel his gentle grasp,
Time was held still all around,
Yet an eternity seemed to elapse.
Although he barely whispered the words,
In a delicate, loving voice,
They landed on my ears like a thunderstorm,
That ceases to await my choice.
I hated putting you in suspense,
But I lost ability to speak,
My heart had stopped altogether,
A tear rolled down my cheek.
I reached out and caressed his lovely face,
My decision I'd never second-guess,
Loving him so much it hurt,
I uttered my fateful, "Yes.”
