My daddy said on our wedding day,
“Princess, you are to be crowned Queen today.
I hope his love for you never slips away.”
My mother crowned me with my wedding veil,
and told me her love for me would forever stay.
I felt all of the honor and glory from the angels
in heaven above,
and felt blessed that day to be surrounded
by so much love.
How was I to know?
Who in the world would see,
where on earth did you love go,
or how unhappy I would be?
If only the angels in heaven
could have sounded
their trumpets and horns,
to warn me that the crown of my veil
would someday be replaced
by a crown of thorns.
