Peaceful times epithalamiom

This day brings forth a happiness,
like no other,
you are my mother,
the weather itself increased in brightness,
I salute a mother.

There's an ongoing carnival in my heart,
colours bloom,
for bride and groom,
love illuminates me like sirens on alert,
I felt from my room.

You are a gemstone to behold,
Oh mama,
protecting you in summer,
and in autumn and winter's cold,
my beloved mama.

I wrote this to my step mother, the day they got married, 17 may 2013.
