I used to think, if you were mine, how all the stars and planets would align.
And then I would sew shut my mouth and heart,
Afraid to start on that vertiginous path.
That path that led from our old vows and faith,
To some unknown, half-forgotten place.
That place we knew before we began,
Where we held each others hearts in open hands.
And standing high above the land
Loosed the hidden snare of our wedding bands,
Watched the stars spell out our fate
Exposing the dawn and the wide open gate.
