Syrian Wedding Portrait (from an archival photo)

By the hand and
by the shoulder
I have you.
You are mine.

I made
arrangements with your family
when I proved
I am a serious man.

You see I am
endowed, and
you will thrive
while my arms are strong.

This is love to me,
young but stern.
Our home will be calm,
and the years will stretch forever.
