Picture Perfect

Beautiful couple on their wedding day
Bride tilts her head in the usual way
Hold it right there; smile just right
We must get it now, for you've only one night

Beautiful couple on their wedding day
Holding hands behind them, out of the way
Look at the camera now; lean in a tad
Smile real nice now so I won't get mad

Beautiful couple on your wedding day
Don't listen to what the photographers say
Photos are lovely, but you've begun your life
Look at him, see your husband
Look at her, see your wife

It's not through just one night that you'll have to grin
Though it might be painful to draw from within
When you fake a smile, make it real in effect
Look, beautiful couple, you're picture perfect.

I LOVE this poem!

It's so true. So much is put into that one night...but there's a whole life ahead of the couple and they must be able to work together through thick and thin.

I LOVE every line of this poem!
