The vows, inception, but a bud,
Which Time has now released;
The years, the layers, gracious flood
Where depth of love increased.
The petals, pathways intertwined,
Your fingers in my own;
The flower, beauty, souls aligned,
A marriage fully grown.
Beautiful! May it bloom in beauty for eternity.
Thanks Russ! Funny actually that roses are so symbolic of love – they sure don’t last very long in reality! But – they’re pretty and they sure smell good. So I’ll just go with it. 🙂
What a beautiful poem, Melody! It would be great for an anniversary! :).
A little late for my own. Maybe just 9 months early for my 25th?? 🙂
Beautiful. But, yes, maybe something slow growing and long lived like a cactus would be more realistic a symbol for love. 😀
HA! I’m expecting your idea to catch on. Imagine all the pretty little cactus songs that will sweep across the world… 🙂
