I keep checking the email

Certain I’ve missed notification.

Maybe it’s time to accept

I missed the mark.  Vexation.

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride

is better than missing the celebration.

When you’re sure this is the one,

anticipation’s crushed by negation.

    “Why am I always the bridesmaid,
    Never the blushing bride?
    Ding dong! wedding bells
    Only ring for other gels,
    But some fine day,
    Oh, let it be soon,
    I shall wake up in the morning
    On my own honeymoon.”

    So cool. Love the rhyme and the vibe!
