scarred

All I can remember are our wedding vows. 

Through all the lies and secrets that have damaged our marriage, I keep coming back to the words we spoke on that day, when we loved each other so deeply. 

The memory only makes the pain in my heart more agonizing.  That day I loved him, but I swear I love him more today, even as I shut the door and walk away from him.  I can’t live with the lies and only he can make this right. 

Even though I know our marriage is scarred forever, it doesn’t change the vows we shared. 

I promise to love you forever.  And that’s the easy part.
To honor and cherish you.
To keep your wishes and dreams my own.
To comfort you and keep you safe, always.
Till death do us part.
