My best friend is counting day towards the big day on Saturday next week. I feel the pressures and all the dramas evolving the preparation of his best day in this life. I shared the same experience almost 11 years ago when I made such a risky decision to marry the love of my Life. Now, i know it worth all the time and efforts invested in that particular day. There is no options in taking time to know our partners well before walking the aisle and utter those few words..."I DO" for the rest of your life.There is no rushing into the altar for a wedding day, we need to pray hard for the same...otherwise you will end up living with an enemy or a strange till death do you part. As a dedication, i would wish to share below lyrics-Its Not Easy from Lucky Dube (RIP) which i found are clicking some senses when it comes to relationships and subsequently marriage issues though am not a reggae critic as such. ITS NOT EASY-LUCKY DUBE (Rip) I remember the day I called mama on the telephone I told her mama I'm getting married I could hear her voice on the other side of the telephone she was smiling And she asked me a question that I proudly answered She said son did you take time to know her I said mama she's the best But today it hurts me so To go back to mama and say mama I 'm getting divorced Oh I'm getting divorced This choice I made didn't work out the way I thought it would (x2) it hurts me so mama mama said to me Chorus: It's not easy to understand it son But I hope you'll make it (x3) You'll be happy again I remember in church When the preacher read the scriptures You looked so beautiful and innocent I did not know that behind that beauty Lies the true colors that will destroy me in the near future This choice I made didn't work out the way I thought it would be (x2) Now I'm hurting I remember when I held you By the hand preacher man read the scriptures Putting words in you mouth Maybe what the preacher man said was not something that was with you Now I know what they mean when they say Beautiful woman is another man's plaything Oh Lord I'm hurting now this choice I made didn't work out the way I thought it would Mama said to me Chorus (till fade) It's not easy... Best of wishes to my best friend and all who are planning to do likewise soon!
