"I do"
the words come easy
the tears even more so
the bells ring
in the background
and the white doves fly away
our friend and family
sorround us with open arms
a sea of smiling face
hand out hugs and good wishes
the tall, vanilla cake is cut
and a dozen camreas flash
i dance with my family
and toast with my friends
yet all i see is you

"I do"
The words echo loudly
like a distant dream
the small newborn cries
and waves two tiny fists
the innocent wide eyes
searcht the room for
a light blue pacifier
the light music of the mobile
plays as the baby sleeps
a new unforgettable face
yet all i see is you

"I do"

the memory is lightly faded

though the words remain fresh

the sound of wedding bells

ring loudly once again

as the vows are exchanged

the father-daughter dance

you smile, a proud parent

and raise your glass

to make a tearfull toast,

wave as the car drives away

the bouqet is thrown

and eager hands reach up

yet all i see is you

"i do"

These small words

hold great meaning

i haven't forgotten

the way they were said

the race of my heart

the look in your eyes

or the thin whit veil

i will continue to remember

even as i wear all black

i remeber the vows were

a promise was made

i see only you

till death do us apart.
