The Marriage Marathon

Many years ago when we were all young,
                         
we dated looking for a mate.
                                         
Two weeks after high school,
                                         
my best girlfriend was getting married.
                           
She wore a beautiful white satin wedding dress,
               
I was in her wedding in a pretty pink lace dress.
               
The next year I was in a beautiful white lace dress,
       
she was in my wedding in a pretty pink dress.
                 
Then came a fall wedding and I was wearing peach,
         
the bride once again was in a beautiful white satin dress.
 
I have been to more weddings than I can count,
             
many pretty dresses now hang in the closet.
                   
Each couple could not make it over the finish line,
when things got rough~they just quit.
                             
Here we are with another anniversary on the way,
           
it has been a marathon race to the end.
                         
We will not quit,
                                                           
we will finish to the end or to death us do part.

Thanks for your visit. Glad you like this story/write. I think pink is always a spring/summer color brides pick for their girls to wear. A pretty color. Have a great/blessed day.............
