White Dress, White Shirt

I accidentally attended a wedding today.
It was beautiful.
The bride cried.
So did the guy down the row.

I got chills
as I finally began to understand
that passage in Ephesians,
the one that talks of husbands and wives.

I began to write vows
in my head
that I should have said
to R,

Six and a half years ago,
almost to the day.
