This poem is for my Wonder Mom Susan and my Wonder Dad Chris who are celebrating their ten year wedding anniversary. I hope the day (February 17th!) is full of love and magic.
Love and Huggles to you both!
Love Is Magic
There is a book sitting
in front of you. There are
words written on the cover.
As you run your finger
along the words, they begin
to glow brightly. The light
begins to pulse softly and
it takes you only a moment
to realise that the pulse of the light
matches the beating of your hearts.
Together, you open the book.
In front of your eyes,
you see yourselves,
ten years younger and filled
with so much happiness. It is
your wedding day and the world
around you reflects your love.
You are looking into each others eyes
and there is so much joy there.
The scene changes and becomes
something else altogether.
You are both standing upon a high mountain,
looking back at everything you have
accomplished together, the lives
that both of you have touched.
The air is filled with scenes
from your past together,
and as the visions of the years
you have spent with each other
swirl above both of you,
making it look as if the wind itself
was made of love everlasting.
The mountain is covered in flowers;
one flower for each time
you told each other “I love you.”
You both turn around and look
towards the future, to where the sun
is shining brightly, casting the land
in a glorious golden light.
You know that though only ten years
has passed, there are many more to come.
As you close the book, you watch as
you both link hands and begin
to walk down the mountain,
towards the light that your love
has brought to the world.
When the book is closed,
it still glows slightly and still pulses,
matching the beating of your hearts.
You run your fingers along the words
that are written there. They are:
Love is magic.
You know this to be true.
