A Symbol of Endless Love

Posted by [email protected] on April 30, 2009 at 9:44 PM

     Not all married couples wear wedding rings because of certain beliefs , traditions, or religions. But, for someone like me who accepted my husband's symbol of love and loyalty (my wedding ring) in front of a Catholic priest and a number of witnesses, it is my most sentimentally valued possession.  Until one day when we had a family outing here in Bermuda, I went looking for it miserably.

     We were in one of the beaches/parks in Spanish Point. I was not in the mood to go for a swim, but was finally convinced by my in-laws and so I went. I swam with simple strokes, then I felt my ring slipped out of my finger. I cried, " nobody move, I lost my ring in the water!" It was very ironic because everybody panicked to look for it. I could not believe it happened. How am I supposed to break the news to my husband who was not there  with us but at work?

     When we got home, carried away by my emotions, I was able to compose a poem. It made me tell my husband what I have to tell, without using my tongue.   I let him read this:                                    


                                                                            MY LOST BAND


                                                        My most valued ring from my husband,

                                                        Envied by water with a lovely sand;

                                                        Slipped out of my finger, where did it land?

                                                        Oh, Ocean, you stole my wedding band!



                                                         For four years well-taken care of,

                                                         Etched and molded for a lasting love,

                                                         An endless symbol as the skies above,

                                                         Now lost forever, no more I have!


     After reading it, he looked at me and asked, "why?'  I was speechless, tears streamed down on my face.          

     Then he said, "Don't cry. At least you all came home safe. I will buy you another one."

     He bought me another ring to treasure, and for Fr. Joe to bless. I am wearing one now, but the memory of the original band will never ever die.

Mary, very sorry for your loss (of your wedding band).

With the appropriate music arrangement and with some additional lyrics, Mary, you could turn this poem into a catchy country blues tune. No kidding.
