Wedding Bells

The stars shall shine little longer
tonight, little brighter as well, for they
need to match the spark of her eyes. The
flowers ' fragrance shall have to live

Longer, for the night is still young.
The Music shall have to fill the air, reach
farther, for the hearts have just begun
to move their feet. The nuptial

dance of destiny waits for the curtain
to be raised. The eyes shall have to
remain awake, for they need to witness
the genesis of a journey, that shall begin

tonight. The wedding ring finds a new
home, It shall enjoy a new freedom out
of the velvet box. The road
needs to convert itself into a runway

for the wishes shall take off and kiss
the clouds with their wings, aiming
for the horizon and nothing less. The
night sky has to create some space

for the eyes are full of stars tonight
The echo of music, shall resonate
till the doors of the dreams open
and welcome the couple in their home.

* For a friend who is getting married today.

    Wowwwwwwwwww yes the dance
    of destiny for the couple, has just begun
    The curtain raised once
    and ascended
    hope never to decend
    Right now that freedom
    so encompassed in that velvet box
    Opened, so that the echo of love
    and happiness resonates to others too
    the eyes are so full of stars
    O pray to the lord
    To keep them always shining
    Until death do them part

    A+++ dear Nikunj
    lovely poem
