Love Fest Memories


just a simple video but scenes
that will not fade from memory –
so etched in smiles and warm
embraces fresh as yesterday

faces now familiar graced the lawn
again where vows were made – faces
dressed in care and happiness were read
in lasting friendships gladly weighed

cheerful friends to greet in years to come
until the vision fades – friends who’s travels
tamed vast distances inferred in voices strange
but all conjoined upon the bridal lawn

just a simple video whose images will
haunt me as I still recall the emptiness
invading – voices gradual fading as they
turned, and waved, and drove away...
