She was getting ready for the wedding of her daughter
But without her husband, the father of this gorgeous girl on a glorious day…
Time was running short
But she had done her best with a trip to the aesthetician, a new outfit, hat and corsage,
How come she felt so sad?
Soon she would be caught up with all the kissing and hugging of relatives,
If only he was here, somewhere near… always so handsome in a suit.
She remembered when he used to walk her home after work…before they were married,
And an involuntary tear broke through her mascara,
She said outloud to herself -
“Everything’s going to be alright! "
