Tonight as a promise
Remember tonight. For it is the beginning of always.
Like a reward for persisting through life so long alone.
The belief in each other and the possibility of love.
A decision to ignore
or to simply rise above the pain of the past.
which binds two souls and severs prior lies.
A celebration of the chance taken,
and the challenge that lies ahead.
For two will always be stronger than one..
Like a team, braced against the tempest of the world.
And love — the guiding force in our lives.
For tonight is only a formality,
only an announcement to the world for feelings long held.
Promises made long ago in the sacred space of our hearts.
