Wedding Day

No flowers, No music, No food
Last minute, thrown together plans
Standing on a stage platform
In front of a play's heaven

Small and intimate
Sixteen people in attendance
The couple and a pastor
Who baptized them both

Short and sweet
Fifteen minutes of talking
No objections
And only a couple of mistakes

Two small rings,
A heartfelt prayer,
And the exchange of vows
To legalize the contract

Nothing extravegant
To join a man and woman
As husband and wife
But it embodied the perfect symbol
For the simple love of a young couple
Eager to begin the rest of their lives
