A Tribute to Royal Wedding

The October sun beamed down to the nation
Rainbows spread across the azure sky
Clouds crafted like a royal wedding ring
Drukyul fully drowned in emotion
Drukpas cheered with the rhythm of joy
Gust of happiness rushed through my being

Nation joined to a single aspiration
To celebrate the prophesied royal wedding
The day sanctified by the almighty
Enriched with his profound blessing
The day visualized by majesty
And my nation rejoiced with veneration

It’s the momentous royal wedding day
Country was gladden and thrilled
Thousands upon thousands gathered
Prepared to endure the vigour of occasion
Determined to witness the whole procession
My heart was engrossed with blissful ray

 Nation assembled in thousands
Tiresome task buried under celebration mood
A day never perceived before
The moment Bhutan had waited for
Air scented with the aroma of sandal wood
It’s the noble wedding I’d seen once

People cherish with one nation
Waved the Tashi khaders of harmony
Folk dances echoed across the nation
It’s the royal wedding ceremony
His majesty and the queen on wedding attire
My nation’s all time desire

It’s the history royal wedding day
Nation dedicated to the Tsa-wa-sum
An occasion that unfurled peace and prosperity
A promise to nation’s philosophy
‘Gross national happiness’
Tashi Delek.
