Your Special Day



There you were in a tux

looking so handsome,

with the love of your life

standing right beside you,

about to say “I do.”


You seemed restless,

as if you were searching

for someone and right then,

those dazzling amber eyes of yours

found mine.


You were tensed,

maybe you were wondering

why I was there

on your special day,

which I wasn’t a part of.


Well, I was there not for you

as you would have thought.

I was there for me,

to see you for the last time

before you became someone else’s.


I know it doesn’t matter

if I’m there or not.

You have someone else now

to kiss all your pain away,

to make all your good days better.


I wish you all the happiness

in the world, even if it’s not

with me, even if it’s with her.

You’re with the love of your life

while I’m still reminiscing what we had.


You looked away from me,

and realized that everyone was

expecting something from you.

And you said it to her which

I used to think was only for me.


You promised to spend your forever

with her, in front of everyone.

You promised her what you once

promised me, in just two words,

“I do.”

    Another heartfelt post where you can feel the emotions of that replaced love. The infamous lines of “I want you to be happy even if it’s not with me”. The pain in saying that and then seeing it come to fruition. Takes a lot of strength to watch your dream get taken away to become someone else’s special day. Lots of emotion and a brilliant flow lovely.🌹🌹. You nailed this one.
