Her Wedding Day

My last unmarried granddaughter
Is walking up the aisle tonight.
They pledge their love with fervent vows.
I say a prayer as they unite.

Dear Lord, don't let her new love fail
To always keep his solemn word,
To cherish her through out the years.
He's promised and we all have heard.

She is so beautiful, this child
I've loved from her first day of life.
I wonder if he knows the worth
Of girl he's taking for his wife.

Her loving parents know they must
Now let them find their own pathway.
They've guided her and taught her well,
Their job is done, this wedding day.

Iambic tetrameter
