The Betrothal

Photograph of our wedding June 5, 1993

The Betrothal

The fifth day in a row together, that glorious Monday night;
You came home from work at seven, we held each other tight!
After entering your carriage house, I popped the cork on our champagne;
We sipped the bubbly between kisses, our love pouring out like rain!
.
We barely touched our jumbo shrimp, too exhilarated to eat;
Our hearts and Souls were soaring, each time our lips would meet!
Before asking you to marry me, I made but one request;
That you never cut your hair again, grown as long as my behest!
.
You replied without hesitation, proved you loved me very true;
Saying, “Yes my darling Larry, I’d be honored to grow it long for you”!
I felt in me an implosion, such as I’d never known before;
I looked into your sweet eyes, as I knelt down on the floor!
.
I said, “My precious Angel Linda, will you marry me and be my wife;
I will honor and I will cherish you, for the rest of both our lives”!
You took my hands and pulled me close, the word “yes” reverberated in my Soul;
This woman I met just five days ago, had made this broken man now whole!
.
.
Our love came quickly
But will last eternally
Our Souls ever bound

My Dear Tony,

Oft times, I get a little "hair" brained, when writing love poetry about Linda and me.  In my defense, I have forty wonderful reasons for doing so, one for each inch of her lovely tresses.  I guess there could be a lot of worse things to be obsessing with.  Thanks for always being there for me.

Love you Bro,
Larry xxx

Hi dear Larry....Your love story is amazing....You just knew Linda was the one....five days felt like a lifetime of knowing her and wanting to spend forever with her....and her Rapunzel like hair as part of the deal....Lol. I am keeping my hair long as long as it doesn't fall out...lol  It is sweet how infatuated you are with Linda's 40" of long locks....My oldest daughter is getting close to that length now...It is pretty.  I always enjoy your love writes about your wife...xo Love n Hugs

My Dear Cherie,

Of course, she did not have Rapunzel locks when we met, but her pledge was all it took for me to open up my heart and Soul.  Like you said, I knew that she was the right one in just five days.  I always kid her, saying that if her hair had been 40" long then, it probably would have only taken three days.

All  my love,
Larry xxx
