The Wedding Buildup !

Go down

The Wedding Buildup !

Post  Sue McDonald on Wed Feb 01 2012, 18:52


Vacumed round dusted too
house all tidy yes right through

Bride arrives with flower girl sweet
running around her mothers feet

Bridesmaids One Two Tree at the door
here to help and support could you ask for more

Hairdressers turn to transform and style
beautiful hair to hold veil for a while

Straight back home to your mum whos waiting
with little Gabrielle doing her own celabrating

Dads collected the flowers transports them with care
Frangipani so delicate and their scent fills the air

Another trip for dad as he takes Nick
down to footy oval though not for a kick

Meet up with Steve as he drives half way
to collect his Groomsman on this important day

Make-up girls arrive at eleven
to highlight the beauty that all girls were given

Mikal arrives to create memorable snaps
as Gabrielle takes a heavenly nap

Photographer number two Chris Kelly is here
setting up to recall laughter and cheer

Dads home ribbons on car
Sarah and girls look like superstars

Dads made the platters drinks topped up
Mums in the pool trying to chill herself down

Lucas slick with suit and hat
opps Gabbys awake she just sat on the cat

My whole world slows husbands not well
needs to lay down the Bride we don't tell

Pain killers given rest for a while
soon you'll be leaving with daughter in style

We all carry on doing our own things
as Dad lays and remembers her playing on swings

The pain it subsides Dad has his shower
looks at his watch he has under an hour

Mums all dressed no more stress
who are you kidding you've not heard the rest

Stunning bride steps into her gown
as I feel a tear roll from cheek to the ground

Reality check straps needed on one dress
as Bridesmaids get ready mums sewing one dress

Chris and Amy dress Riley fine
now its nearly Gabbys time

Perfume sprayed hair in place
make-ups fine smiles on face

Camera clicks flashes blind
gosh where's the day gone runnung out of time

Car has arrived girls climb in
Sarah gives her Dad a kiss smack upon his chin

Driving down to largs bay
watching the people as they wave
following behind with her dad by her side
is our beautiful daughter who we love with pride

Sweetheart we love you your dream has so come true
May love health and happiness be with you all life through

Your well-crafted poem builds the suspence and beautifully illustrates one of the most important days in a young woman's life. Your details are incredible. Well done. In fact, I enjoyed it very much and called my wife in to read it as well. She smiled and shook her head knowingly. My wife is a woman of few words, which is in large part why we get on so well. You see, in speech I too am a quiet person. In writing, however, as you can tell, I sometimes get diarrhea of the keyboard. doh Thanks for sharing your lovely poem. Mike
