Getting Married


Contract

red rose
How can I promise a forever I don't own?
How can I give a self I don't know?
(Standing here in my best wedding dress
clutching a rose.)

How can I offer a love I can't define?
How can I promise a life that may not last?
(Standing here peering forward.)

I take your hand
And give you the rose...
