Too much to do, no time to waste.
Food to be made,
tables to be set,
dresses to put on.

The day is here,
life changing this day is.
You were one now two,
a new life will be made.

Men sit around and converse,
women rush , place the finishing touches.
A cup here,
flowers there,
a bride and groom in place.

The bells ring,
choruses sing.
Dad and daughter
arms embraced
Given away to
the man she loves.

“Dearly beloved”
“With this ring”
“Now you may kiss”
“Pronounced united”
“Till death do us part”

I wrote this for my sister and her fiance right before their wedding.
