Why not me?

Golden jewellery
Silky red
Why is she wearing it and not me instead

Beautiful lilies
Smiling faces
Happy tears and clasping cheers

Everyone awed by the bride and groom
Who knows if such love would find me too

Drinks and dances
The laughter enhances
The dim lights glitter away

Cheer surrounds
Binding them around
Love grows pure and strong

Seeing away them together
Yet my heart calls me out
Is it happiness or fear, is it distant or near
And again I drown and drown and drown
