I was once so good with words

In the middle of doing my long, long overdue cleaning of my ‘magic box’ where all of my for sorting goes (much like a limbo where a thing is decided for keeping or for trashing, mostly it’s the latter), I’ve came across this supposedly wedding vow an old acquaintance asked me to write for him.

He misplaced the print-out I gave him so he never go to use this. I’ve thought of using it for my own but since the bells would not sing I thought i’d treat it as just an ordinary, out-of-whim composition.

I was once so good with words

Just by a few phrases

I can move rocks and win hearts

I didn’t imagine I’d one day choke

Not for lack of inspiration

But because I was overwhelmed

With such genuine love

Like a castle fortress proud in isolation

I was overran

With pure dedication and compassion

So chaste that everything around seemed tall tale

You are the only truth I know

For this, my life is yours and yours alone

My heart will speak only truth

Thus will speak only your name

My life began when I spoke your name

Its echoes commenced the beating of my heart

So then when my heart is called to rest

I will say I love you second

And your name last
