The Wedding Vows
When I was six years old, I met him at the playground
and he came up to me with a daisy and knelt on both
knees and asked me to marry him. So I pushed him
over and ran away. Two days later he came over and
asked if he could play cops and robbers with me
and from that day on, we played together everyday.
On my first day of secondary school when I was
eleven years old, I was very nervous but at lunch
time he came to me and we sat down and ate lunch
together. We did this everyday for an entire year.
You were the first person that I told about everything.
About my crushes, about my lessons and about all
the people I hated. When I was 13, I thought I was
the only one who had never been kissed and you offered
to show me how. We shared our first kiss by the
tree in your back garden.
When I was fifteen years old, we went to our first
proper house party and I got drunk. Even though
I made a fool of myself, you were there to help
me stand strong. You didn’t judge and neither
did you make fun of me.
We began to drift apart during the next year and
we each made different friends. I got my first serious
boyfriend and you went through quite a few girlfriends.
May came together with prom night. Everything was
arranged as I prepared excitedly for that day. I
got my outfit for months only to find out on the
day before that my boyfriend cheated on me. The
first person I turned to was you. You turned up
at my door with a bouquet of roses and a vintage
I laughed that night.
I cried that night.
We had three glorious years together where I would
smile everyday. Even on the last day when your mother
stood up in church in front of your coffin and began
reading from your diary:
"I saw you when I was six standing by the
bench in a blue checked dress and daisy shoes and
I needed to give you another daisy because…
Because I loved you from that day on."
His wedding vows written the day after prom which
I will never get to hear.
