Here I stand,

In the midst of all my friends and family

In front of the woman that I love the most.

Here I stand,

At the altar.

Thinking of all the memories,

And good times to come

Between me and her.

I think about

Buying our new home,

Raising our children.

Becoming Grandparents.

Oh! I see her!

 

Here I am.

Patiently waiting for the

Other bride to walk down the

Isle, as did the first.

They are going from,

Engaged, to Married.

The second bride approaches

As the music starts to play.

The first bride, looks over

And smiles from ear to ear.

I smile too.

They’ll be happy together.

 

Here I go,

About to walk down the aisle.

In my dream dress,

In my dream venue.

Giving my life to my

Girlfriend of 6 years.

I hold back the

Nervousness,

Excitement,

And happiness.

To walk down the aisle

Confidently, arm and

Arm with my

Grandfather. Am I really

Ready for this?

 

“Are you ready, sweet?”

“Absolutely”
