WEDDING DOLL WHERE ARE YOU NOW?

Updated on November 15, 2010

 

Wedding doll where are you now? ~

You sat so pretty on my bed a long while. ~

Wedding doll should I had kept you with me~

Instead I let you go to whom I thought~

 You would please.

 

Wedding doll my Aunty Ruthy~

 Gave you to me~

She hand made all your clothes~

 As pretty as could be.

 

You had of course the wedding dress~

 That you usually wore~

Than there was your red plaid dress~

 That I did adore.

 

Beautiful blonde hair~

 Worn up in a bun~

I always gave you great care~

 With much particular love.

 

You were handed down to me~

Once being Cousin Sandy’s~

Cousin Wendy’s went to live at~

 Another niece that Aunty Ruthy fancied.

 

Tiny white sandal shoes~

 Went with all your outfits~

An emerald green and also a~

 Pink dress tied with a bow~

Made up the rest of your true-so.

 

Oh how you sat so beautiful upon~

 The pillows on my bed~

Wearing the veil upon~

 Your head.

 

In adolescents I cherished you~

As a married adult I still relished you too.

 

Than came the time Aunty Ruthy~

 Went to Heaven~

Her grandchildren I thought should have~

 You for heirloom preservation.

 

I imagined Aunty Ruthy might~

 Want it that way~

Mixed feelings I had when~

 I gave you away.

 

Now I just wonder~

Did I do the right thing~

To give you up~

As you to me were such~

 A treasured thing.

 

My only hope is that you~

 Were prized the same as I had you~

My hope that you were appreciated~

 Like the esteemed relic you were. ~

 

Now I can only wonder~

 

Wedding doll where are you now? ~

You sat so pretty on my bed a long while. ~

Wedding doll should I had kept you with me~

Instead I let you go to whom I thought~

 You would please.

      Micky's ode to you...a love poem...brought me here. Nice meeting you! I had storybook dolls a long time ago and several were dressed as brides. I gave all of them away when my family moved from Wisconsin to Texas.

      Hope that the person who has your wedding doll is caring for it as you did. Sweet memories woven into this poem.

      This is lovely. I had a wedding doll and she was beautiful, a lovely brunette. Sadly my Mum decided to update her and made her a blonde. I was heartbroken.Loved your hub.
