I remember, the day was hot and dry.
The green leaves danced in the tree
From a calm breeze.
The white and red crystal sun catchers hanging from the branches caught the corner of my eye.
Our little girl so bravely walked to her daddy,
With familiar faces gazing upon her.
My father took my hand. My mother met us half way.
The music played, and led me down to you.
Our eyes met. I walked to you, to claim forever.
I brushed a tear from your eye and smiled.
We spoke the words we wrote to declare our love for each other.
I had already felt you were my forever, for awhile.
We danced and held each other like it would be our last;
Even when we knew it was just the beginning.
Forever yours. Forever mine.
Eight years ago; and the sun still shines.
