Mother of the Bride

Beaming right there before me,
eyes fixed upon your man.
Dressed in white lace and satin,
an elegant woman.
The first moment I saw you,
I gave you my whole heart.
I loved you and adored you,
tried best to do my part.
Now at this very moment,
my heart erupts with pride.
I wonder if you realise,
the love I hold inside.
And as your vows are spoken,
I try to stop the tears.
As memories dance around me,
I see you through the years.
God bless you on your journey,
as I have gained a son,
My beautiful young daughter,
my child, my precious one.

    • Hi Christine. Yes it is real. My eldest daughter got married early this year and it was a roller coaster of mixed emotions as you would know. They’ll always be our babies. Sorry I made you cry. Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This is a lovely message to you daughter. I hope you shared it with her. I was actually at a wedding last night and I can imagine the bride’s mother saying a slightly less eloquent version of this. What wonderful sentiments beautifully expressed.
