She chose gay pink this day because glad joy
Dispelled a fear long near her heart. His life -
So eager, fine, no danger could destroy!
Their love swelled deeply as he saw his wife
Upon the threshold of life
I stood - eager, expectantly waiting.
One hand rested lightly
As openeth the rose, so hath our love
Unfolded to the beauty of this hour.
Hushed silence fills the church, and from above
Amid celestial music, great wings soar.
