Because, she is the bride ...

Because, she is the bride
for the night,
loaded with jewels,
and hush-hush make-up.

Because, she is the bride,
her face radiant,
her smile illuminating,
and her mind in melancholy.

Because, she is the bride,
the lessons of her mother,
the love of her friends,
the blessings of the relatives,
she takes along.

Because, she is the bride,
apocalyptic tomorrow,
with an unfamiliar mother,
and a new family.

Because, she is the bride,
who was the sun of her family,
will be the moon to the new family,
all geared up, to make her home.

Because, she is the bride,
her dreams she'd woven,
unsure of the future,
with unending demands,
and full of sacrifices,
she welcomes all of it,
and give herself,
in the eternal bond.

Because, she is the bride,
she cares,
she loves,
all like her own.
Because, she is the bride,
she sighs,
she's anxious,
she is the most deserving of love.

No, not just because she is the bride, but because she deserves this all, she will be loved.

Nicely described all the senario faced by a bride!!
After making her and her family's life colourful, she goes to another home to fill it with lots of love and colours.

Nice plot!
Keep writing Ritika :)

Beautiful write up. I could feel every emotion you talked about. The anxiety, fear, happiness.. Mixture of feelings. Beautiful.
Ps- words aren't everything, i agree :)
