Angel Face in Lace


I sit here in a daze, thinking back....
I wept, when I first seen your mother in wedding lace.
I cried when I unveiled her angel face.
I wept the night she said 'yes I will marry you'
I cried at the alter when she said ' I do '
I wept when she said ' we are having a baby '
I cried at the thought of daddy.
I wept when I first seen that pink lace.
I cried when she unveiled that angel face.
I wept the very first time you became ill.
I cried when you took your first spill.
I wept on that first prom night
I cried because now I wasn't the only white night.
I wept I wasn't the only man in your life anymore.
I cried because in time you would be walking out that door.

I weep as I watch you in white wedding lace.
I cry as he unveils that angel face.
I weep this evening because he is marrying you.
I cry as the past echoes the words ' I do '
I weep and through tears a grin appears.

I grin in anticipation of the thought of pink lace.
I smile the day I unveil that angel face.
I grin at the thought of seeing that baby.
I smile at the thought of Grand Daddy!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
