    Have you ever been in fear
    of something you want so much
    you don't see it
    you do feel it
    you deny that its true
    you spend hours planning
    the moment that will bring you bliss
    but this...doesn't stop
    the fear that drops
    on your heart in an instant
    you don't want to admit it
    but you can't be scared
    cause it will mean bringing forth
    the feelings that contort
    the ones you claim to have
    the bravery you stood by
    and as you try not to cry
    you've realized...you lied
    and all along its been you
    that isn't sure you should go through
    Something so permanent
    even though you feel the contentment
    there seems to be a million and one reasons
    that this love for all seasons
    won't be jeopardized
    by a decision you're trying to hide
    behind you there is a small worry
    that in this bond you'll one day be sorry
    but still you'll stick it out
    convinced your mind doesn't know
    what it's talking about
    So you'll hide the apprehension
    ignore the tension
    and you look at him and answer yes
    as your decorated finger
    rests...on your tight chest...

    Saying yes to what is vowed to be an eternity, could certainly cause those nervous feelings, and I think that you conveyed this very well. Flow on.

    Well felt, indeed. It's one of the mysteries of the human condition that it is easier to accept ourselves as failures than to reach for our full potential. May you live with the courage to keep moving forward. Peace.......
