The wedding bells
They shared a glance with fidgety fingers
Everyone around blurred as they felt belonged to each other,
They felt at peace being close to each other,
They had a talk that lasted long, everyone felt that something is wrong.
They came along and said yes together, Everyone cheered, as they were engulfed in hug
The preparation for the D-day started as everyone took a responsibility
But the to be bride and groom had no care,
For they have started to live as a husband and wife in their never ending calls and incessant texts.
The shopping spree disturbed their sleep, as they thought "Can't we get married in our pj's and loose tee"
The thought of wearing a saree made her freak out, and he made sure to have a spare in everything he felt will be needed.
The awaiting cake tasting happened and dishes were finalized as the foodie in them rejoiced with an evil smile.
The waiting ended as the D-day came,
Bride's father stood in corner as he made sure everything is going well
Bride's mother fretted over this and that, unable to stand at one place
Groom's father welcomed everyone as he smiled at known and unknown
Groom's mother stood near the stage catering everything around
Cousin's made sure to make it hard for to be bride and groom even to have a chance to glance..
Well, friends made sure they didn't back out and run to hills
The never ending rituals started and so did the smoke
The Groom entered the stage wiping his forehead,
The sound of her anklet made his beating heart to race,
They looked at each other, his jaw dropped and she scanned him
They bit their lips and held back the curse, as they sat next to each other
They exchanged their vows with intertwined hands, as his hand carved for the nuptial cord
As he tied the first knot, a tear drop rolled down her cheeks
The second knot made her inner tremblings to feel at ease
The third knot made him realize, she is meant to be his and he will treasure her in all walks of life.
Their parents had tears of happiness in their eyes, as the princess of their home have become a queen and going to start a new life.
The Father's together tapped each other's, shrugging their shoulder as now their son will realize how to be a man from the guy he is
The newly wed engulfed each other in a hug as they realized matches are not made in heaven, and falling in love happened but staying in love is by choice
As they all gathered for a photo, everyone realized marriage is not something that join two hearts, but two families in a new bond.
