The reason for her happiness...

Source



Wedding Bells ring
Ring placed on her finger
Fingers placed in her husbands 
Husbands kiss on her lips
Lips curved up smiling in happiness 
Happiness not because she met the man of her dreams
Dreams have finally produced a sigh of relief 
Relief that now, all the aunties will finally give her a break

    It would take a long time to discuss the issues your last statement raises in my mind...

    1. Thanks very much for the compliment, dear. There's actually a particular name for this type of poetry. It skips my mind now, but I will remember soon.

  6. ...the break aunties will ever give is short lived. The next thing they will be asking when the babies are coming...

  9. My husband and I had our wedding reception at this place. It was absolutely perfect! The manager and his staff from NYC wedding venues were excellent and wonderful to work with. You won't be able to find more for your money.
