Vows have been spoken, the promises made,
God has warned that no one may sever.
The future is rosy, the foundation laid.
You have your sweet dreams of forever and ever.
Mother must give up first rights to her son.
Father has turned over his daughter.
Everyone prays that he is the right one
And that she heeds all her mother has taught her.
Dear Bride and Groom, a bright future is yours,
If you always remember to put your mate first.
Whether the sun shines or whether it pours
You'll double the best and by half cut the worst.
Some strive for riches and some strive for fame,
You'll travel onward toward your goals together.
Your treasure's the one who is sharing your name,
The one who is faithful no matter the weather.
For Dr. Mehta's contest Honoring the Bride and Groom.
