Daily Prompt: Big Day Ahead

Daily Prompt: Big Day Ahead

 It’s the night before an important event: a big exam, a major presentation, your wedding. How do you calm your nerves in preparation for the big day?

Grandma and Grandpa fell in love
And decided they should wed
In those days that’s what people did
Before they fell into bed

They got the forms from the county clerk
They filled them in all right
They went back to file the papers
The clerk was closed up for the night

They slid the forms beneath the door
Clutched hands and stole away
Their passion was so strong
They could not wait another day

They went downtown and took a room
At the Hotel Angeline
Grandpa registered all alone
He snuck Grandma up unseen

They went inside and pulled the shades
Hung a sign upon the door
They practiced for their wedding day
“License Applied For”
