Daily Prompt: Memoir Madness – It was the best of times

The sun began setting

as everyone gathered around –

the sand beneath my feet

served as a cool barrier

to my warm heart

our eyes connected

with each other’s souls –

making promises…

smiles and tears

filled the salty air

the happiest day of my life,

I knew I was loved

When somebody truly loves you, they pick you up – not kick you – when you are down.

That was probably the one thing that led me to knowing that he loved me like no one else ever had.

“If you’re ever down, I will pick you up.”
