Thu-thump <3

I breathe in.

Thu-thump <3

I breathe out.

Thu-thump <3

My heart's beating

Matches the rhythm of my pace.

The distance between us

Stretches so far.

What might be a few feet,

Seems like a hundred miles.

All I can see before me,

Not the faces nor the room

Just one face... yours.

The love I see matches my own,

And the squeeze of my father's hand

Is the only grip that holds me in.

My heartbeat picks up.

We are almost there.

Time slows down,

And finally my hand is in yours,

To be bound together forever,

With those simple words,

"I do."
