A Moments Glance

Written by: Sharon Gulley

Today I watched a couple, shop for a ring
The tenderness of new love, a life, a dream.

I remembered the newness of love first
known and how through the years we
stand and look back on how it has grown.

I thought of how we never foresee all the
challenges and sacrifices that come in the
years yet to see and how the newness 
becomes our new reality. 

I wondered if we could see the future in advance
and know that a life lived together makes a marriage,
a woman, and a man; would we still marry from a 
moments glance?
