When I Said Yes
Walking down the aisle in a flowing white dress,
everyone waiting each with their own bless,
waiting and watching for the words 'I Do' and 'Yes'
I stand and he holds my hands in a gentle caress.
Me, as the bride,
my father nearly cried,
I held it in as long as I tried.
I looked at my handsome groom,
when he saw me his eyes did bloom,
he looked as if he would zoom,
across the entire church room.
I reached the left side of him,
I looked at how he was always slim,
I listened to the children singing the hymn,
marking the best day of both of our lives.
