Wedding Poem

“You need to write something for the priest to say.”

She knows I should write it. And it sounds so easy 

Because I write so much. But what she’s saying is

“Write the most beautiful thing you’ve ever written. 

Try and capture a single moment of all I mean to you

With nothing but the noise your pen makes.”

And she knows how much inside myself I am

And she pulls me out.

And how do I explain to everyone how many little things like that

There are.
