Date with my Daughter

Slice of Life #3

Standing there so lovely
in a flowing gown.
Gazing at the mirror
looking up and down.

A tuck here and a tuck there
the seamstress pins it all around.
We're here for the first fitting
It's the most beautiful dress to be found!

Hair up, hair down
The decision not yet made.
Twirl around once, and then again
She imagines their promenade.

It all began quite innocently
The day my daughter met a boy.
They fell in love, he asked for her hand.
Now this mother is full of joy.

There is much to be done, our lists are full
Flowers, dress, cake; nothing can we miss
But today we smile, the time comes quickly 
The day my daughter enters wedded bliss.

What a wonderful experience you and your daughter are having. Your poetry could be a special gift for her.

Ahh, choosing the just the right gown is the best part (other than the relationship itself). Congratulations to you and your daughter!
