Beautiful Bride, written by Toni L.A. Cross 8/21/09

Beautiful bride
Blushing and glowing

And wondering

What is marriage really?
What meaning hides
Behind the wedding bells’ toll?

Beautiful Bride
Wistful and worried

And wondering

Will ours really last?
What meaning hides
Behind the wedding vows’ solemnity?

Beautiful Bride
Loving and sincere

And wondering

How do you do it?
Does throwing two lives
In a blender really work?

Beautiful Bride
Tired and iridescent

And resolved

Saying I do
The wedding is almost over
So now it really begins.
