The Wedding Photo


They stood there smiling in black and white
holding their fingers tender and tight.
They knew the secrets of a past tense heart
they knew of a future 'till death do us part'.

They tell a story that starts with 'I do! '.
They dream of a lifetime witnessed by two.
They hold their crowns as King and his Queen
They know not that marriage is simply a scene.

She hopes to be mother and blessed to be.
He hopes to write poems and countries to see.
She loves to become a woman at last.
He loves her in the future, present and past.

They both look so happy and deeply in love.
They both dream of marriage as life in a grove.
They both do not know the 'I do' aftermath
for they both envisioned a different path.

    This is an outstanding image of two people, man and woman, getting married in the Greek Orthodox Church: King and his Queen in marriage. A story framed by 60 years of life together. Congratulations to the parents and their daughter! (Report) Reply
