After The Final Rose












Such a short journey,
seemed so long.
Hard to believe
that their love is strong.

The final rose.
Two girls waiting.
My heart beating fast,
embarrassed, anticipating.

Did I feel so shaky
during the moments of my engagement?
Are these words spoken true
or said for mere entertainment?

Both girls in tears,
one with a smile.
Will this love last forever
or just a short while?

Now I'll turn off the TV.
Maybe forget about them forever
and turn back to my life
and what my marriage will weather.

A proposal is a moment,
a wedding is a day.
A marriage is a lifetime,
a promise to stay.

Two people in love
hoping the love grows
when the cameras turn off
after the final rose.

  1. I, too, wonder about the depth behind the words or if it is a TV moment. You nailed it with this...

    A proposal is a moment,
    a wedding is a day.
    A marriage is a lifetime,
    a promise to stay.

    Blessings on all in the midst of the marriage journey.
