Today I get to be "The Bride"
Today my heart is filled with hope and delight,
As I stand in my gown of satiny white,
Today I will celebrate a new chapter in my life,
Where soon I will acquire the awaited status of wife,
I rethink the words of the vows I will make,
And hope some of the clauses I won't have to debate,
I know the words say for richer for poorer, for better for worse,
But I hope for the better and the fatter the purse,
Today I gaze down the long aisle where soon I will meet,
My friend at the end all odds to defeat,
Today I will soak in the cheers and the laughter,
And stick to my dream of happily ever after,
Today I step forward with confident stride,
Because today I get to be, The Bride!
