BRIDE´S AGONY
 
   

I knew it well
Things do not favor me
It was a life and death question
I hoped for good //

I was always praying the Almighty
To clinch the marriage issue
I like no untoward incidents
I was little bit apprehensive //

Doubted my ensuing in-laws
I was observing their psychology
Time was rolling out
I was in full control with deep thoughts //

I was looking at my wrist watch
Observing the Time & date
I was disappointed for few days
I thought for a while //

To swim in the Life Sea
To reach the Life Shore //

I like to swim in the Sea
To reach the Sea Shore //

I thought, never to give up
Hopes always live with hopes
I had a detailed discussion
I had exciting talk //

I was relieved from tension
I asked uncle
Sought for marriage alliance with Uncle´s son
I want to settle in life //

Run the family with peace of mind
Hubby has better principles in life
I recouped with heavy breath
Prepared for countdown days //

I made gate dash for clinching my issue
Observed bridegroom´s father carefully
He walked to the door
I knew, time was running out //

Suppressed the urge to check my watch
I took a deep breath
Started counting in reverse under my breath
Like, ten, nine, eight, seven, six to zero //

Though perturbed, kept my mind balanced
Came to the sense
Requested for a glass of water
Settled down for few seconds to ease tension //

My heavy breath has calmed down
Had sigh of relief
My inner sense told me to observe the wrist watch
Watching the psychology of boy´s parents //

The inner ´sacred soul´ told me to speak very softly and politely
Prepared for any eventuality in this crucial issue
Consoling my heavy inner heart
Trying to cool down my brain //

I was able to pacify myself
Able to remember my friends telling me that −
After the storm, there is always calm
After the sunshine there are showers of rain //

With this self-advocacy and self-consoling
Able to settle-down after some time
Able to manage crucial moment & time
Urged Aunty and Uncle to perform this marriage soon //

Would be mother-in-law understood well
The agony of Bride was well received
Would be bride has been given good treatment
Well spoke by would be in-laws.//

Would be in-laws agreed in toto
The bride was given an assurance by in-laws
The engagement would be accepted
The Marriage would be performed soon.//

With this kind words of in-laws
The bride was happy
Bridegroom was also happy
Engagement and Marriage took place.//

Both the new couples Happy
Both the In-laws Happy
Oh the marriage day, invitee blessings showered
New couples were very happy.//

Went on Honeymoon like twitter-shelter
´Young couples Twitter Shelter Home
Looks like Great Princes - Bonding with Loving Heart
Universal Beauty-Smarty in the World
Bonding Hands Forever, Life partners soon //

Later, Fly Away like Twitter, for Honeymoon Joy

Settle in Life for a Big Show Soon //
