Best Wishes

Man’s POV

I stood in front of the altar
Clutching and feeling my  heart
The day she awaited finally came
and the situation will never be the same.

The whole crowd gasped, she’s finally here.
Like a beautiful angel, she appeared.
Step by step, she approached me near
But the ambiance of joy quickly disappeared

Yes, I was in front of the altar.
Yes, I was waiting for her.
But I was beside the man she’s marrying
I was just the best man of the wedding.

The euphoria I felt quickly died
My heart start to thaw with the tears it cried
When I opened my eyes to snap out of trance
I came to realize there is no more chance

She’s getting married. She can’t turn back now.
I should’ve loved her like she taught him how
The only thing I could do is wish her happiness.
No matter how painful it is to say, “Best Wishes.”

Woman’s POV

Here I am on this day
Standing pretty, if I may say
My feet seem numb, my vision blurry
I tried t breathe in and out to calm me

Everyone gasped as I entered
I felt an aura of joy in every corner
Step by step, I approached my man.
But my sight led me to the best man.

His expression was sad, his face weary
His eyes look sad as if he was teary.
Like a flash of light, all came back to me.
I was looking at the one I loved who never turned to me.

I remember when I told him of this day.
It pained me to hear his answer. Just, “okay.”
I thought he would even try to contradict me.
I thought that he’d do something to even stop me.

I’m getting married, and I can’t turn back now.
He should’ve loved  me like he taught me how.
The only thing I could do is try to forget you
Even if it’s the most painful thing to do.
