There comes a time in every man’s life … Yes, when EVERY MAN starts to think about the day the inevitable exchange of nuptials happens. A very daunting period that ultimately reminds you how old you are getting and to what heights a man can soar with the right woman by his side.
Before you start judging me for being a
softie , allow me to justify my “gangsta” first. I am only sharing my thoughts on the what I feel is a very important moment in any man’s life… I recently attended a wedding and was moved at how much love there was in the room. The bride and groom couldn’t keep their eyes off each other, the family were beaming with pride and their friends couldn’t hold back their tears.
The lights deemed, the music started to play and out came the words that had almost everyone in the crowd in tears. The young lady spoke with such passion as she walked towards the newlyweds kitted in what appeared to be all the trappings of couture fashion. Allow me to share what is probably the most beautiful string of word play I have heard in my life.
“What a small word we use for an idea so immense and powerful, it has altered the flow of history, calmed monsters and has hardened hearts speaking in the sweetest of tones
Discover this beauty by eliminating your fear of the unknown.
To truly love is to understand this, to be in love is to respect this
Love is strong,yet more delicate than the morning mist that settles on green blades of grass and presents itself as a bed of kisses
Love is the sunshine that brings a golden glow upon its beholders face
It’s the broad smile, the burning cheeks, the “swept off my feet into that heavenly place” sensation….its undeniable
The best and most beautiful things in the world are felt by the heart, that cause skipped heart beats to become a treasured, weather intimately close or far apart, it’s still the most sought after owner of hearts
It uncages souls, opens eyes and leaves millions of memories of smiles called stars to remind the world that it still exists.
It’s only destiny that two paths meet to become one path widened.
I stood in the presence of sheer destiny in July 2011
When total admiration for another being conquered his understanding and his tongue spoke similes no simple mind could imagine
When he claimed what was not yet his because he had his mind on a goal.
I knew she had captured more than his heart, she had captivated his soul.
I watched as they disintegrated jazz during a slow dance, enhancing its melodic tunes, and how they wrestled with times hands because he too fell prey to this love so true, he had to remain in that moment over and over again.
God spoke the finest poetry into their union
Handed them their dreams and with fingers interlocked between lovers hands, he told them to run.
At the break of dawn the tiny tickles of toes, the birth of their first son, an uncomprehendable beauty.
I heard how his voice transformed gradually being stripped of every essence of “manly” to cater to her delicate nature
And how when he called her name, it echoed the beauty of a promising future together.
We are here to witness this love so divine,
The kind of love that feels like a thousand ants doing a rain dance down your spine
With your hairs standing tall reaching for the sky ambitiously and your heart growing wings adamant to soar but its cradled by gravity….
I saw how he looked into her eyes as if they unlocked portals to eternity
And how she would give it all up to him gladly…..
As their childhood dream comes true today, I pray the happiness behind these memories never fades away”
By Mutinta Marie-Jose Bbenkele (The duchess)
It’s always refreshing to see that love still reigns supreme.
Regards to all….
