Bittersweet

As I watch the two of them walk down the aisle
Lost in one another's faces and smiles,
It is such a bittersweet moment for me.
People entering this sacred union is beautiful to see,
And I pray the Lord will bless them with happy years,
But knowing that it's not me causes me to shed tears.
A wedding reminds me that I am still alone
When the wedding I'm at is not my own.
Why, oh why do I feel this way?
Why am I so sad on this happy day?
How, oh how selfish can I be
To wish that today could be all about me?

I pour my heart out to God--He hears.
"Don't be ashamed of your emotions, My dear,"
He says, "for I put the desire of marriage in you.
Only do not allow loneliness to keep you
From celebrating the joy of this bride and groom."
I now see Light in the midst of my gloom.
I suppose weddings will always be bittersweet
Until the day when God has me meet
That special guy that He has for me,
But till then, I will pray for my future honey
And for those who enjoy marital bliss today.
For their happiness to last I'll always pray.
