"...and as I look down the aisle I took one last gaze into a distance so near and I rejoice-- for what he sent to tear us apart only grew into a tight right fist raised to the heavens, a stronger embrace that serves as my earthly protection, a village who camps around us to rejoice in the power of ONE. Now with tears shed, lips locked and hands raised we surrender an unspoken nod, affirming ANOTHER VICTORY WON." -Whitney Wilfred, The Bride
For a moment I didn’t recognize your face.
I was staring you dead in the eyes but you didn’t look quite the same.
You’d gotten a little older; time and life made your eyes a little dimmer.
I almost walked right by you but thank God for something there that still seemed familiar.
Where did you go hiding? What made you crawl into place?
I almost forgot about you my friend, I could barely remember your name.
My love, you were gone for so long and I hadn’t even realized that you were away.
But thank God for double takes and learning from mistakes
Because if it weren't for second chances, my dear, I could have lost you that day.
I saw a shooting star today…it reminded me of you.
A fleeting love; bursting into flames once entering the earth’s atmosphere, only to crash and burn upon arrival to the surface.
But you were mine…If only for just a moment.
We spent it in the sky high; completely consumed by each other.
Somehow I found perfect peace in the middle of our storm.
Your chaos was comforting.
I felt safe in your harm.
We were…The perfect destruction.
