The Wedding Rehearsal

with her Mother's heels and veil
   she holds his hand solemnly
tells him forever they'll be
   ... they are five years old

two decades later they laugh
   remember first rehearsal
again she wears Mother's veil
     ... this time it's for real

by Francine Roberts
for Dr Ram's 'Wedding Rehearsal - dodoitsu' contest
