Her pathway was strewn with rose petals
As she walked down the aisle that day
To the flower-decked altar of roses
Set with beautiful palms, in May.

The organ pealed forth sweet music
As the ushers marched down the aisle,
Then followed the sweet, dainty maidens
Gowned as bridesmaids for awhile.

The organ was playing so softly
While the pastor united the two,
And said the few words that should bind them
To each other for eternity—through.

Long it has been since they married
When they walked down the aisle that day,
And promised the lover and sweetheart
That they would love each other always.

Alas! the groom has forgotten
The dear one that he adored,
For parts unknown, he has vanished
And gone the love he bestowed.
