And it had everything to do with a very special song, she admitted.
“Ben and I talked about Mark Cohnis ‘True Companion’ as the perfect wedding love song in this very house over twenty years ago,” she wrote, recalling the beautiful moment when she finally walked down the aisle, accompanied by her five children blended into two families. “Even though Ben didn’t know it, I asked Marc to surprise him by singing it at our wedding and he was lovely and generous to come.”
She continued, “As I was walking down the aisle, the first song he played wasn’t ‘True Companion.’ It was hers ‘The Things We’ve Handed Down’, a song about the wonderful mystery of children, something we could only guess at then, but it was the perfect choice as our five children preceded me on the road. The twenty years between those youthful dreams and the adult world of love and family we embraced that day brought more to this marriage than either of us could have imagined,” she wrote in part, adding that it all seemed to come to a head. full circle.” ” as Marc finally performed “True Companion”.
Jen continued with the memory, explaining how things had changed over the years, while their love had clearly endured. “Later, Ben told me that the chords of the song and seeing Marc Cohn surprised him and allowed him to feel the way the two paths we had traveled had found their way, inevitable, inexorable and perfectly together,” she recalled tenderly. . “And when he saw me appear at the top of the stairs, that moment made so much sense and seemed incredibly hard to believe, like the best dream, where all you want is to never wake up. I probably would have had many of the same thoughts if I hadn’t been so focused on not tripping over my dress, but when I got close enough to see his face, it made the same wonderful sense to me. Some old wounds were healed that day and the weight of the past was finally lifted off our shoulders. Full circle, and not the way we planned it. Better.”
