What Falling in Love with Charli Feels Like

A Lesbian Wedding in Cape Town South Africa

Sometimes through the maddening crowds of people, you find that one friendly smile, the kind that warms your heart and makes it take a tiny leap, with bit a simple look , that holds your gaze just right and slowly you begin to realize you may have just met your person. This person who seeks to understand, is patient and kind and despite the scars, loves you, for you.

I remember the first time we met. Both a little scared to dance, but with hearts quietly glowing with hope.

Often I think of you in your Audi A3, overjoyed with happiness because of simple sunflowers and your country tunes. You who has such a gentle smile spreading across your face, never hesitating to help anyone- nothing too much to ask.

I think of that woman, now my woman, a good woman, you.

How then you took my hand so softly and asked me to dance and now you hold gently- my heart in your open palms. And as our love has grown, it has been both freeing and strong.

Seven months ago, I stood behind the great oak doors, heart racing like nothing I’d felt before. I had heard your music fill the silence and immediately my heart began to gallop.

I knew it was mere minutes before I walked toward you and stood beside you for not only those moments, but for our lifetime.

In those precious seconds, I watched my loved ones slowly leave the space, making their way, their indelible support for us.

The doors opened and there you were. I listened to the echoes. A shy and initially watery but ever-widening smile began to make its ways across my lips.

If I could have run up, done cartwheels or bollamakiesies up to you, I know you would have laughed at the goof that I am.

My soul reached out and connected to yours with each step, drawing us closer. At last, I held your hand.
