The Most Important Day of my Life

Poetic Bloomings Prompt: The Most Important Day of My Life...

...when I said ‘I do’

Blissfully unaware
Of life’s conniving stare
Its concrete walls and hurdles
Because my eyes were fixed on you

When I said ‘I do’
Certain that love
Would be enough
Come hell or higher water
To carry us through

When I said ‘I do’
Hell and high water
Seethed; primed for slaughter
But I guess they forgot
You said, ‘I do’ too

Lord, when I said ‘I do’ to You
My lesser yet equally cherished vows
Are possible to keep, though life blows
It vilest gale from unknowns deep
Love will be enough to see us through
