Behind This Door

Behind this door
My world changed
I was faced with the reality.
We could not have what others did
We could not share our joy
We had to celebrate together, alone.

But behind this door
My heart changed
It became entwined with hers
The love we shared
Was sealed with a promise
My heart now beat for two instead of for one.

Behind this door
My life changed
She asked me to marry her at 5:45
Just as the sun was about to rise
I said “yes” without thinking twice
And we go on forever.

I think of our life as two bookends. Our story started as one bookend. Then there were all those years apart that followed. And now we are spending the rest of our lives together as the closing bookend. It is as if our love has supported us all those years, and that is how we got through them.
