A Bride’s Maid (NaPoWriMo)

A Bride’s Maid
By Donna M. Monnig

She watch’s the wedding,
her sister, the bride,
Two more sisters are
bridesmaids, on either side.

The bride she’s so happy,
it’s her special day,
The husband is thrilled to
finally get his way.

The bridesmaids stand
proudly, watching ringside,
As the preacher says, “You
may now kiss the bride.”

The photographer captures
the moment beginning to end,
Another records each memory
to be watched again and again.

Guests smile and congratulate,
while friends reminisce,
Girls line up for the bouquet
hoping one day, to have all of this.

But she? She watches, invisible
as lasting memories, they make,
After all, who at a wedding
remembers who served the cake?
