i carry your heart with me. i am never without it.

A white dress. A slow walk. A first look.


And I thought I loved you then.

Exchanging of gifts. And kisses. Not-yet official.


And I thought I loved you then.

A long wait in the vestibule. Butterflies. An organ playing.


And I thought I loved you then.

A procession. Solemn vows. A first kiss.


And I thought I loved you then.

Hands clasped. Ocean breeze. Guests waving. 


And I thought I loved you then.

A slow dance. A song for just the two of us. Nervous whispers.


And I thought I loved you then.


Five years. A lifetime. The blink of an eye. 

Happy anniversary, my love. You're mine for all of time.
