Cox-Giffords Chapel | Vero Beach, Florida | May 15, 2011
We were married Friday,
February 10, 1989 in Fort Pierce.
You have been my child bride, the bride of youth, lover of soul and body.
When I had no family, you gave me yours, and insisted they be mine.
You have been my playmate, visionary, adventurer, soul-mate, confidante.
You, Beauty, lifted my head and kissed me. When I didn’t change, you kissed me again.
You never laughed at me and you never made me cry, except right now.
We have been true partners in matters of faith, vocation, and interest, it’s true.
And we have been persecuted by those closest; but you have known meekness.
For, even in your great anger, you were ever faithful, and you attained to the Elect.
You found us “people” here and there, as was prophesied, and people yet today.
Now you stand among your own at home; but I am as alone as a homeless man.
I hear those outside Lazarus’ tomb saying, “See how much he loved him!”
They will never say such a thing about me, even if they catch me weeping.
For I have been so gravely deficient in love. I could try again . . .
If I could somehow tear the skies open and drag you back to me. But no.
Time will soon enough rip itself apart and reveal our next chance meeting
On a mission field somewhere. And I will be a better man then.
