Nothing more than a grain of sand
one among a cast of millions
arose and accepted the burdensome
yoke of humanity, the drudgery of life,
the pains, torments, tears, and fears
until love entered his heart.
Nothing but a tiny grain of sand
now filled with a woman’s love
beaming broader than the sun,
wider than the Milky Way
standing tall, strong, proud, and fearless
with her vision in his mind.
Nothing but a proud grain of sand
knelt by her side, making his
wishes known, the dreams of his soul,
the secrets of his heart,
the projects, plans, ideas, and thoughts
searing his vision.
Nothing but an exultant grain of sand
stood with his love at the altar
pledging faithful love, devotion,
a lifetime of togetherness,
trials, tribulation, joys, tears
traveling the path of marriage.
Nothing but two grains of sand
forged through the world
casting aside the millions to
focus on the other, the others that
they create, the little ones, children,
loins of our loins and loves of our love,
for now and forever. Amen.
