The Wedding

You were my love

happiness and hope

I was in cream

With a gold ribbon tied around my waist

My hair like a Greek goddess’

Speech kept in my floral gold wristband

My feet hurt for I wore my pair of 3 ½ inch heels

Those which you picked for me last year.

There you were at the altar

In a tux I meticulously chose for you

I looked at you and I felt like falling.

You wore that smile which I most love about you.

The walk down the aisle was a struggle.

I couldn’t keep my tears from falling.

At the ceremony, I remembered

How we met

How we fooled around

How we fought over little things

How you turned into my sunshine, and I into your angel

How far we’ve gone

You hurt me, a lot of times

I love you, still.

I heard you said “I do”

I heard the priest said “You may kiss the bride”

I heard everyone cheered and clapped and said congratulations.

Then I heard glass clings,

I was asked to give my speech

In that moment, I forgot of what I wrote

That speech that took me forever to finish

All that came out was

“Congratulations to you and your bride”.
