Till glasses of milk made way for cups of tea… And the Sky fell in love with sweet Chants of glee! From ponytails and Barbies… From pranks and football… The years just blended… And, today they stand tall – With their eyes full of love With one single plea… Their hearts beat in rhythm Singing, “Will you marry me?” Today we bless them, and today we pray: All through their lives, on each golden day, May they always be there holding hands side by side May Gods shower their blessings on this groom and his bride!"
