I remember the mile walk we once did
For school. But we held hands all the way through,
Slipping and sliding from the sweaty palms,
The mud squelching underfoot as we went.
And from behind, running, came your cousin
And his friend yelling “ewww!” but we giggled.
And as we went deeper and deeper in
We found we were alone. I embraced you,
And we had our first kiss amidst the dead leaves.
But the tumbling leaves were confetti
And the trees our own wedding canopy
The words we said were our own wedding vows.
We were to last forever and ever.
Just in that one moment I was happy.
