Marriage Song

A timeless essence floats through the air. It fills the lungs of the lovers who sit alone and together. Air embraces them and holds them warm. Orange flickers throughout the room creating shadows. The shadows are a puppet show of love. They sway and dance, move to the ambience in perfect timing.

He stands and offers his hand to her. She doesn’t dip her head but gazes fixedly in to his eyes. Joy plays its own melody on her expression. In the silence he holds her and she yields to his guidance. His hand on the small of her back and the other stretched out, entwined in hers like two ropes tethered. They move in the firelight to their own tune. It’s been playing since God looked upon Adam and Eve and remarked, “Very good.”

Swaying. Light stepping. Leading. Submitting.

For but a moment his hand leaves hers and he holds her face as a precious vessel of the person he’s commited to love and lead for life. With great confidence he presses his lips to hers and the tune grows louder. Closed eyes means the room is now black.

Swaying. Light stepping. Leading. Submitting.

The song goes on.
