Eye Witness: An Account of Love

Eye Witness: An Account of Love

The Account:

Like panoramic images, visions

of our love flashes before me.

He is holding me closely,

I’m buried safely in his arms.

We’re walking hands in hand,

slowly taking our strides together.

I’m all smiles, he is too.

The busy world surrounds us,

but we barely notice.

Our world is perfect,

we’re on top of the world.

He and I are on one accord,

at peace, and in love.

We’re making plans for our future.

Life will be wonderful.

We’re unstoppable, unbreakable,

and hopeless romantics …

Our love is perfect.

Wait a minute, what’s this?

The Act of Being in Love

The Act of Being in Love

black-couple-canoodle

The act of “being in love” is a mental state of fulfillment.

It’s where happy hearts are lit and blaze within.

It is where two merging souls meet in a mutual place.

The act of “being in love” requires commitment.

It’s the inner knowing the love connection is pure-

and when the blazing flame is no longer felt-

the determination and willingness

to keep the heart warm and love alive is innate.

Runaway Bride

Exchange of Vows

MINISTER TO THE COUPLE:  Do you (GROOM’S NAME) promise to take (BRIDE’S NAME) to be united in marriage? Do you consent to live as man and wife in the state of marriage ordained before God and others? Will you both promise to love, comfort, honor, protect in times of sickness, health, and during the times of lack, whether times are worse, sickness occurs, or there are times of joy and happiness? Will your devotion remain to each other and will you both forsake others?

GROOM:  I will.
BRIDE:  I cannot.
(The couple leaves and goes into the vestibule to talk in private)
GROOM:  What is wrong?

BRIDE:  I cannot do this. I thought marrying you would make my heart change. There’s someone else I love. Standing before my family, and God, vowing to love you, and honor you when I know my heart belongs to another is a lie. Hurting you is not my desire, I’m sorry. You’re a good man. You are loving and will make a wonderful husband. Any woman is fortunate to have you. You’re everything I’ve wanted in a husband. You’re a great provider and comfort me when I’m feeling bad. When we’re together, you show me respect, we have so much fun.  How you cared for me when I was sick I’ll never forget.  You are wonderful. Please forgive me. (the bride sobs)

GROOM:  If I mean all those things to you, and I’m willing to marry you, why is he the one who holds your heart?
