More or less a week from today
We will all watch my daughter walk down the aisle
to join her soul mate in matrimony
Behind her will be the memory of a little girl
who frolicked about as her head full of curls
covered her face as if to play hide n’ seek
with her darling doting dad.
And although there is no reason to be sad
tears will definitely roll down his face
amazed at the site of her amazing grace.
God only knows how much we love her.
She and her brother
have been the greatest loves of our life.
Big brother will help him usher her
down the aisle
Neither will feel the need to rush her
to take those final steps into a brand new life.
Awaiting her will be
her handsome groom
wearing the greatest smile
you will ever see
as his wife to be
slowly approaches to be united forever
everyone will be so excited
as the violinist plays their favorite song
all of us will sing along together
the refrain everyone for some reason seems to remember:
“Though I know I’ll never lose affection
for people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
in my life I love you more”
*Dedicated to my beautiful daughter whom we adore.
