The Vow

I went to see “The Vow” today. The movie is inspired by true events. It tells the story of a young married couple (Leo and Paige, played by Channing Tatum + Rachel McAdams, respectively) whose lives are turned upside down when the Paige suffers a traumatic brain injury as a result of a car crash and doesn’t remember her husband. Although the movie wasn’t as good as it could have been, it depicted true love at its best. I’ve never been married so I wonder:

Who will
vow to love me
now and forever
when we are
old and gray
until the end
of our days

Who will
vow to love me
to fight for me
in sickness and health
foreclosure and wealth
good days, bad moods
arguments, disappointments

Who will
vow to love me
just as I am?

Will you?

The poem Remember Me was also inspired by the movie!
