Maria Magdalena Biela
The Wedding Photo - Poem by Maria Magdalena Biela
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.
