Wedding Day

Mist in the air, gold in her hair.

Flower petals found scattered on the ground, by a pond full of lilies.

She'll wear a white dress today and her father will give her away.

Her mother watches as she gets ready, and sees her little girl playing dress up.

Her nails are done; her hair is perfect as the butterflies flutter faster.

She puts the finishing touches on and now is ready to take that journey in front of family and friends.

She wears a white dress today and her father will give her away.

He starts leading his little girl down the aisle with a tear in his eye, and when they reach the end she is a grown woman in his eyes.

Standing by her groom they share a special thing, as they stand there looking deep in the eyes of the one they love.

She smiles sweetly while he quietly sheds a tear.

She wears a white dress today and her father will give her away.

Now they share their own words, the preacher speaks and now you may kiss the bride.

They walk side by side, take a deep breath then smile their lives have just begun.

There is one last glance and smile past between parent and child.

She wore a white dress today and her father gave her away.
