THE VOW

by Maricris   May 6, 2016


Dearest Sarah,
I am far away from you
with heavy heart
I'm always thinking of you
couldn't bear to watch the photo
of you and me,
giving it a kiss and embrace
I always wanted to see your face.
I'll catch a train in Spring
every second I'm remembering
the memories that we have
and the love you bring.

Dearest Jonas,
I am so overwhelmed
upon receiving your letter
I couldn't wait
to see you in Spring
the day of our wedding
the moment we say, "I do"
my love I'll give fully to you.
we will be wearing our rings
a symbol of our promise
and everlasting love
and all I could dream of.

Early morning
one Monday in Spring
Sarah, wearing the whitest of white
and the sweetest smile
sitting in her car
vividly waiting for the groom
to appear in sight
when someone approaches
breaks the news, starting her plight.

Like a child and running wild
to his hospital bed, cold
in his hand, a paper blood-stained
she reads his vow,
I promise to love you
to stay with you for the rest of my life
fill each second with happiness
and satisfaction, and a whole lot
everything a boyfriend, a lover
a husband and father can do
I'll do it for you.

White gown now red
uncontrollable, hugging him tight
her vows, trembling, sobbing she recites
but how will they ever
make their dreams come true
she dares him take her along
with him, to stay with each other
to live with their love
if not on this Earth but in the heavens above!
