Goodbye My Lover


brideIt is finally here

My wedding day

I have waited so long

For the month of May

But now as I stand

Here waiting to move

I don’t know if

I am really in the mood

I wanted nothing more

Than to be married today

But something is clearly standing in my way

Do I love him do, I really want to

Stay by his side for at least fifty-two

Or is it the glamor and all the lights

The wedding preparations and the high lights

My parents always said don’t marry just to be

Stay single and wait til the right one comes to me

I know in my heart that this isn’t right

I drop my bouquet of flowers right here on the site

With tears in my eyes of how I have pained

I know I can give him nothing to gain

I take my veil off and lay it aside

I almost knew what it felt to be a bride.

  1. Oh my dear, this could be my weddingday. I felt excactly the same and my family said the same words to me, when I stepped right into something, that I didn’t want afterwoods. The marriage didn’t last long, just one and a half year, today excacly 34 years ago, hehehe. “Goodbye my lover..” 🙂 Great writing again my friend 🙂
