In this moment when I find
The time to picture you
In lace and white chiffon,
I can almost see as clearly
As the day we said our vows,
When no cloud would dare to cast upon.
Ours seemed to be the only shadows,
And the powder blue sky was gleaming
Like an oracle in your eyes.
To all the universe we proclaimed
Forever, not another name nor hand
Would be yours or mine.
You were called to Eden,
or to Heaven or to where all angels go.
I remained here alone, and grieving,
But as it will, on; my life would go.
I somehow know you approve,
I feel it, how you understand.
How she makes me feel, it's not the same,
But pure in another way.
I never could replace you,
And you know I'll love you always,
But it's time for your memory
To give my hand away.
No the yellow sun is shining,
And the guests are nearly pining
For event, a nuptual recital - she and me.
Faithful I shall be to her,
As faithful as you always were,
And honest as a good husband should be.
Perhaps she will not betray my love, and Leave my side to take the hand of shadow, as did you
Beyond the sparse hedgerow of near tomorrow, I cannot tell what is to come.
******* it, anyway...
And bless this union in the sight of these,
I have no idea who the hell I was when I wrote this one.
