When You Were Worthy of the Finest
Adorned by family and friends
Your fanciful march
Besotted with promise
Twirling fuchsia bouquet
In your tailored silk gown
Intricate ring placed with trembling hand
Imparting unity eternal
Freshly bound souls
Dreams bubbling like Champagne
Beneath a propitious moon?
But life unfolded…
Human condition consuming
Boxes to check
Building a home, family — career
Hearts taken for granted
Prioritizing spouse and children
Personal ambitions shelved
Until one day a ray of sunshine startles…
Elicits yesterday’s smile
Ironing a face etched by sacrifice
And resurrecting hope
From that time
When you were worthy of the finest…
Was once upon a time and still am…always and forever. XO
And your tenacity is so inspiring! May those — who have momentarily forgotten — experience that ray of sunshine today and every day… xoxo

That’s amazing. A gorgeous piece of work. Forgive the self-aggrandisement, but I wrote a poem about a wedding dress that your lovely poem brought back to mind 🙂 http://isimonfiction.wordpress.com/2013/01/09/the-wedding-dress/
Thanks for letting me find you… Your poem is poignant in its reality, your writing sheer delight!!
That right there is there is the wedding of powerful writing and emotion. Such magical expression

Sweet Shauna, thanks for sharing your poet’s soul. It’s great to keep love alive. Might be time to dust off my muse. Thanks!
And thanks to Sherry of The Other Side of Ugly for a beautiful story and site, Keep on being the light!

Like proper diet and exercise, cultivating one’s romance seems so obvious, and yet…? Indeed, Sheri’s illuminating mind is as beautiful as she is! YES, write more Brad — your perspective is too uplifting not to share!! xo
This is beautifully written. All the words fit like a gleaming white wedding dress. It’s one ceremony we won’t forget.
