TRAGEDY

Two years ago,
We met at the mall,
Sized each other up
Neither of us was ready to approach the other.
Finally he gave in
Names and numbers were exchanged
Places of work and residences discussed
As we got to know each other better.
We sized each other up
Thought what good would come out of this.
Took the quiz if you would make a good spouse
How our children would look?
How we would look 20 years from now?
Would we still love each other?
As the relationship got deeper
We had exchanged love stories
Family history
School stories
And began to fall in love.
Our families met,
Dowry was exchanged.
I walked down the aisle
In my dream wedding dress.
That was until
We were about to say our wedding vows
Daddy walked in………


We were brother and sister………
