guest post: just me...

whoo-hoo!!! i am so elated...my baby sister is getting married!!!   I cannot thank her enough for gracing my space and sharing her love story with us.  Her words of poetry simply warms my soul.  I am speechless, at this moment.
i love you Sis (waving at Em).



you're sweet like a krispy kreme

and just as rare

if I was a songwriter

I'd write your song right here

you're better than the best that ever was.

Any person that questions that last statement gets punched square in the nose...

I'm your silly, random, violent, selfless, crazy woman

and your the muse to all my poetry and potential prose

like "the perfect verse over a tight beat"

you might be proof that movie romance is attainable

the way you make me feel: in-explainable

even if I had all the world's alphabets

to make up all the possible words in the universe

I'd have to use them all

and still couldn't compose an accurate verse.

if I were a collectors edition pair of Louboutins

for sure, you'd be the matching purse.

yang,

I'm happy to be your yin

and I jest

but you know

that forever

you're my everything

'course I'll wear your ring

and 'course I'll be your wife

there's no one else with whom I'd share

this crazy thing called life

so I'll take your hand

and kung-fu grip it tight

(so you don't do that stupid swingy thing you were doing

when we went out the other night)

and we'll figure out all that other stuff

married people are supposed to do,

know why??



I'll give you three guesses,

though you should only need one to get it right...

okay, you're taking too long

so I'll just tell you why



it's 'cause I love you.

(no takesy-backsies, double pinky swear,

promise, I'll always be there

even if your feet smell,

or you start losing your hair

know, that with rogaine and odor-eaters

I will be right here)
