We saw it in the window of a thrift store.
At the same time our old fashioned ways lit up.
Our eyes sparkled and we laughed. Carefree
We were engaged and ready to be married soon
The white fluffy wedding gown
led us both to go in to the thrift store to ask about it
One hundred dollars in 1998 was just right
I tried it on
Meant to be
So lovely with lace and many buttons down the back
I'd wear ballet slippers so I could dance as much as I wanted to
We bought it and felt happy and carefree
Keeping simple was our style
Sunflowers adorned the church altar
created by my mom and dad
Dad was sixty, Mom sixty four
After years went by, we donated my gown knowing some other lady was feeling joyful in the special magical wedding gown, too.
