The Promise

A tear runs down her cheek
towards a memory
revisited.
She smiles
as the sun peeks out
from behind
passing clouds,
painting a shadow beside her.
Reassuring,
like his presence.
Unwavering,
like her trust. Her belief,
in his promise.

The sound of chimes
wafts across the air.
Mingles
with the
melody of her laughter,
from a memory
of him
as he knelt before her
and made her a promise
of true love.
Cherished by her for years,
revealed today
as pearls
of joyous tears
that run down her cheek.

Today laughter plays
with sorrow.
Elation flirts with anxiety.
And sunshine dances
with raindrops.

As he walks into her world
from across
a distant horizon,
a rainbow of myriad emotions
dazzles her.
He finds his way to her,
and she loses herself
in his loving embrace.

"...And she loses herself in his loving embrace." Yes,that is what its like! Love the gentle, delicate way in which you make the reader 'feel' every emotion...
