The Bride...

In the last two-three months, I attended a lot of weddings within my family circle. In most of them, I was from the groom's side. Hence, I thought of writing something about how a bride feels, as seen through my eyes...

My cousin Anuj Bansal and his beautiful bride, Vasu Bhabhi :-)

Her heart rhythming to the mixed feelings of,
Nervousness and pride,
Holding her breath and the red dress,
Walks the beautiful bride...

She looks up with her mesmerizing eyes,
To see her family and in-laws,
Some admire her for her perfections,
Some criticize her for her flaws...
She wears an elegant smile for all,
And lets the anxiety hide,
Holding her breath and the red dress,
Walks the beautiful bride...

Amidst the decorations and sparkling lights,
Her eyes look for her groom,
The one who makes her stars shine,
The one who makes her bloom...
What to say and when to say,
She lets her groom decide,
Holding her breath and the red dress,
Walks the beautiful bride...

As she steps into a new world,
A million thoughts cross her mind,
Starting with a new journey of life,
She leaves a journey behind,
She sheds and shares those precious tears,
Before changing her side,
Overcoming the grief of separation,
Walks the beautiful bride...
