Tears Of The Groom - Poem by ~~~ Leaven ~~~
The Groom is grieved for his brides’ gone away,
Scattered and lost from the land of her king.
Sitting alone at his table to pray;
That sheep of his flock might gather to sing.
Bitter tears he cries to know she has sinned.
Engaged to a whore who knows not a word
‘Bout the promise he made and died to defend.
…Now deaf to that promise; she wields a sword;
Battling against the vows that he had made
Blinded and marred by her freedom to sin
The white gown is stained; for she disobeyed.
A father’s Gift to his son, a curse…pinned;
To the lapel of his wedding garment
The Father’s apology and lament.
