He'll always remember the way you look tonight. July 13, 2010 20:10 2 Comments

There you are, standing at the end of the aisle, waiting for the pianist to start playing 60s_wedding_dress_advance_3539 The Way You Look Tonight so that you can begin that long walk. No Bridal Chorus for you. Been there, done that, won't do that again. You have bowed to tradition in some ways, though. The church. The gown. The wedding ring. Not white this time. A beautiful silvery gray satin for the dress. Silvery gray lace for the bolero and train. Advance 3539, circa 1960s. Elegant. Regal. You know you look lovely. Why be modest? Why be insecure?

There. The first notes. You swallow. You move one foot forward. The other. Slowly. Tentatively. After all, this is huge. Huge. You've lived alone for years. You've grown set in your ways. And the first marriage wasn't exactly a fairy tale. But then your eyes meet his. Your heart flips. Skips. Just like it did the first time you saw him, smiling at you across the crowded airport. He is the one. You are the one. You know it. Your next step is strong. Sure. It does not waver.
