Last night as the rain fell and the thunder rumbled
I lay close to you
hands clasped and feet touching.
We whispered our fears to one another,
Our hopes and dreams that might not be.
We wondered where this road was leading
as we saw the dark valley ahead
with no light yet.
The rain softened and the thunder faded
but on we talked
remembering moments of our lives before:
Before the unknown.
We laughed and we cried
but we held on.
And we will continue to hold on.
To each other,
to our friends
to our family,
to our vows.
For better or worse,
For richer or poorer,
In sickness and in health
Until death us do part.
But even Death will not part us.
We are one, in spirit, in soul, in our hearts.
