A memory of tears filled eyes
How can I forget this precious aisle?
The aisle you walk in your gown-shy
Now carries your silent and dire

How can I whisper to you love
How you looked as a dove
Ah! The memory is green and fresh
The night of our all white and thresh

Look at you o! Once beautiful aisle
You are my dread on you my light fade
Sermon given to my love as she goes to grave
The grace I ask to face this maze

    Hits the soul like a chard of glass smack dab in the middle of grief, though the same chard reveals the face of your beauty like a velvet hand stretched out from the sky to touch the tears on your face, congrats on your 1st place win, your brought me back to my father's funeral same church where I married in, not quiet the same, but the feeling is mutual love and light vie xxxx goes in my fav book of memories.
