First snowflake – Nove Otto

Glowing bride, your smile won’t falter

Pure as the first snow of winter

Walk down the aisle with your father.

Nervous butterflies turn to calm,

He holds your heart safe in his palm.

Your loved ones, here they all gather

This moment will pass by so fast

New beginning, the first and last

Lifetimes promised to each other
