Wednesday August 25th, 1971

I awoke early that morning as Venus is fading from dawn's sky.
Watching sun rays skate upon the mirror of ripples,gently flowing by.
On the deck of a Princess ship, suspended between the Heaven and the sea.
The mirage of a double Sunrise,as the sun shone upon itself and me.
Today is the day I say "I DO", take thee as my Wife: for the Eons of Eternity.
Bible in hand, the captain stands in Dress Whites, as does his loyal crew.
Arm and arm with daddy,as he gives her unto me; to start a life of Love anew.
Her emerald eyes try hiding behind a transparent Pure White vail; only to fail
Her auburn hair is dancing below her shapely hips: I long to kiss her Rosa lips
Do YOU take this woman"Lenore Ellen Adams" as Your Always and Forever Wife.
I Do echos across the Caribbean Sea. I Do reverberates in the bright Blue sky. "I DO"

Inspired by Dan Kearley's Contest :"One Of Your Greatest Days

Dedicated in Loving Memory of "My LIFE, My LOVE, My FOREVER, MY WIFE
"Lenore Ellen (Adams) Johnson - Nov. 4, 1951 - August 25, 1971

    Love is pain, my friend. The more pain, the greater love. That is no consolation. But be glad to feel it because her memory resides in your heart. That is her new home until the day you and Lenore are together again. Peace my brother, for I am no liege lord.

    What a great tribute to the love of your life Harry, this brings tears to my eyes, as the saying goes, better to have loved and lost then to never have loved at all. Your memory of her is impeccable and truly filled with great passion. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart, bless you kind man, may the angels watch over you as you sleep, love peace light xxx Your eternal Rose xxxx V

    The beautiful Caribbean Sea must have been a fantastic wedding. I all dreamt of a military wedding it just never came to be. Thanks for the read.
