Wedding Bells  
by Ela Lourenco

Baby pink buds barely in bloom

Pearly white candles in the dimly lit room

Rose petals strewn down the aisle

Beautiful bride walking down with a smile

I watch my mother as she glides past

Trying so hard not to walk too fast

She never even glances my way

I am forgotten on this special day

Forgotten all this last year

Forgotten ever since he is here

He is not who he seems to be

But no one sees it, no one but me

He has tricked them all

His charm has them enthralled

Today’s my last chance, there is no other way

The last chime of the bells will mark his last day…

  1. Marge Simon says:

    Moral: include kids, (if any) in your 2nd wedding. If your kid is like this one, tie them up in the basement and cement them in. No worries! Good one!

  2. A great chiller set in a beautiful ceremony – as Marge says, ignore kids at your peril!
