One-Hundred-Year Stone

A surprise question

on bended knee

an invitation to always be

a part of this family.

The wind’s caressing graze

on shaking hands

as cathedral bells ring

and beams of light

irradiate my favorite bridge.

We walk confidently

into our future

under the promise of

the one-hundred-year stone

now resting on my finger.
