Bright, Bright Eyes

My best friend married the love of her life this weekend.

This is the song for their first dance, chosen by her husband.

You know how some things in life are just certain? You are not sure why or how it happened…but it feels so natural, and so right, that you wonder how life ever went on without it in the first place?

That is how I feel about Steph and I’s friendship. That is how I believe she and Don feel towards each other.

It’s so rare to be part of something true and real and beautiful in this world today…bright, bright eyes, how grateful I am for your influx of light.

What can I say…to my dearest twin and twin-in-law,  except congratulations, Steph and Don, may your life together be a poem that keeps on renewing itself in beautiful and true prose.

This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They’re spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you’d just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

    Sweet marking of an unrepeatable moment. You’re a true 21st Centurian to convey the sense of this priceless event so creatively.
