Vows were taken, and prayers said, on that warm day,
Of their blessed wedding day, that fulfilled
The dream that had been seen, and fantasies thought.
And the Angel’s dress already bought, and nurtured
At the source of that Great River, River Nile…
Her little girl fantasy came to life, when Andy held
Her at the alter, and the two came together
As man and wife, that bright day,
That the church was filled with stars,
Coming from galaxies both near and far.
No tears were shed when exchanging the rings.
And kissing when on glasses there were clings,
She looked gorgeous before him in a gown of white
‘Cause the angel in her was such a wondrous sight,
As waters poured from the lake, into the Great River
They danced on the softest clouds of gold
And began the promise to have and to hold.
We’ll remember her veil and the long matching train
And know how she looked when taking his name
And became Mrs Balondemu, at the source of the Great River
That day was be filled with joy and with love
And heaven sent blessings from God up above.
Sadly the day came to an end.
But the angel now has a lover and friend
Fulfilling a love, brewed at the Source!
