The Anniversary by Ronnie (from Italy)

I took up my chair in the corner of the room
Looking over the evening's banquet table
Plates of half-eaten food lay around
Knives and forks in disarray
Glasses some empty
Some full
How different from the party a little while ago
The table was set with a floral centrepiece
People were laughing at stupid jokes
Cigarette smoke filled the air
Knives to the left or right
Glasses were all full
Even the clock on the wall has stopped ticking
The time signed on its face is around 11:00
Was the party a success, who cares
Another anniversary has come
Yet where have they all gone
I was waiting in church
Only yesterday
Or it seems
I remember the nervousness of the morning
Time seemed to be standing still
Then finally the preparation
And the run for the chapel
Waiting there forever
Friends joking
I was pacing
When you arrived before the church in your gown
Visions of angels, of doves cascaded down
Organs played, choirs sang Ave Maria;
Two priests celebrated Mass
Eternity in a second
Kisses exchanged
Dreams realised
Our friends have long gone away, I have sent you off to bed
As I watch you resting, a sweet cherub on a cloud
I want to pen these last thoughts from my head
These recollections of my foggy memories
A wedding Mass sixteen years past
For me only a second ago
I said "I do!"
