My eyes teared up at thoughts of June
(my daughter’s name) and all too soon
her wedding date. It can’t be true.
Just yesterday, the kid was two!
I’d saved brochures and books galore
but now I yearn to bar the door
and keep her under lock and key
(or send her to a nunnery).
How did the years fly by so fast?
I thought this day would be a blast,
but it’s a bust. My heart may burst!
That’s why I choose June 31st.
