I Do

Here is my whimsical take on this week’s poetry challenge by Eugi (Moon-washed weekly challenge)

I am using the word prompt “dramatic”…to say…

I Do

i just wanna say, “i do”
i don’t need a grand hair updo
or a stunning glam team
that would make me look like a queen.

i just wanna say, “i do”
i don’t need a dramatic dress though
or an awe-inspiring long trail veil
that would make me look like a character from a folktale.

i just wanna say “i do”
even if it would be just me and you
for i don’t need an ensemble of people, i don’t know
or a magnificent gymnasium venue.

i just wanna say “i do”
no need for a melodramatic
full symphony entrance
the ’80s hit love song would do
sang or played on a piano.

i just wanna say “i do”
with you and you alone, i do
so baby, tell me will i wait in blue
in anticipation with glee?

‘cos i just wanna say “i do, i do”
and let the whole world melt
with my vow of undying love for you.

  2. Very romantic. This reminds me of my parent’s wedding. It was just them, the priest and two of their friends as witness. It’s been 39 years since then ☺️

  4. HA! I love this, SweetMich! I do! πŸ˜‰
    Beautiful, romantic, sweet, simple, fun, memorable! A wedding doesn’t have to be big, showy, and costly! Besides more effort should be put forth for the marriage than the wedding ceremony. And it’s the love that counts and lives on! πŸ™‚

    I love this – a simple I do is much better than the choreographed proposals with videotape and dancers and elaborate presentation of a ring… Your poem makes it so much more romantic when it is just 2.
