I'm getting married!

by Dan Bonser (writer), Keota, OK, November 21, 2012

I never thought I'd say those words, but now the date is set, and the plans are being made, I'm getting married, on 2/22/13. So...I wrote a poem!

I never thought
I’d say the words
But I’m getting married
And I’m happy as a bird

Once,
Very long ago
I wanted to find a love
That would move me so

Yet it never seemed to come
So I locked myself away
And forgot about love
Until this day

I woke up happy
With a woman by my side
And cuddled her soundly
For she would be my bride

I remember asking the question
And giving her a ring
That slipped on her finger
Such a beautiful thing

I’ve had many failed loves
Through my history
Enough to show me what was
Pain and misery

I’ve fought and screamed
And thrown people to the curb
Then risen again from the ashes
Like some odd proverb

Somewhere along the way
I realized that I would be forever alone
I resigned myself to that fate
And believed that love was done

I buried myself
The best I could
Only to be unearthed again
By someone who would

Be mine forever
Until the day I die
And believe in longer
Through time’s eye

Now I sit
And ponder eternity
With her as my bride
Can this truly be?

The answer is yes
For that is what she said
Now the day approaches
For us to be wed

Sweet and wonderful for you.

When I first saw the title of your poem the song from My Fair Lady came into my mind.

I am still very new to BrooWaha, so I am slow and even somewhat shy in getting to know my fellow writers, but I thought it would be awesome to come to this post and introduce myself, and say Congratulations!

My husband and I met and exactly three months later were married. (We both already had one failed marriage.) But this approaching February 2013 we will celebrate 31-years. And many doubters thought it wouldn't last.

I pray God grants you peace, love, wisdom, for very long happy marriage. ~Virginia
