The music plays softly
As the groom stands there, awaiting his true love.
He is as beautiful as the first time I laid eyes on him
It’s not that often that a man can be described as beautiful
But, it is the only word befitting him
As he stands in his black and white tux at the end of the aisle.
The flower girl sprinkles her petals as she glides towards him
The corners of his mouth turn up in anxious joy
The day he has dreamt of has come
The thrill of it all is written on his face
Everyone turns as his bride appears
I am the only one who can see his eyes watering with joy
The music fades out as the two hearts are joined together
And as he lifts his bride’s veil to show the world his trophy
A lone tear falls from my eye.
It should have been me.
