By David C Price

As they kneel on alter sides,
Hands in an eternal embrace
On perfect white cloth creations
Matching shoes, socks, and gowns
With shimmering eyes of love,
A myopic vision framed by mirrors
Whose reflections reveal infinity,
Surrounded by friends and family
Seated in a circle on royal chairs
With mothers at one alter’s end
And fathers at another,
A voice breaking the silence
With Abraham’s familial welcome,
With everlasting, new covenants,
With kingdoms and exaltation ahead,
A tear escapes from its hiding place,
A place where tears escaped before
At birth, baptism, and graduation,
Each hand declares “yes”.
