always a bridesmaid, never a bride

down the aisle I go once again

though still not dressed in white

I wish and I pray

with each waking thought

when will I meet Mr. Right?

I decided to wait

and chose not to date

just as God told me to

but still I yearn

for it to be my turn

to tell a man, “I do!”

just quit your whining

“it’s all in God’s timing”

as the dreadful saying goes

yet still I hope

like a desperate dope

for “the one” to arrive and propose!
