Wedding Poem

I wrote the poem, "Our Dreams," as a Valentine gift for my wife. Since that time, over a hundred brides have requested permission to include the poem in their wedding ceremonies. My wife has given me permission to say yes to every bride.

Our Dreams

Published by Family Friend Poems January 2008 with permission of the Author.

Let's ride into the sunset on a rainbow.
We won't come back until tomorrow
In the grandeur of the misty sunrise,
With stars that fill the skies in our eyes.

We'll paint the sunset with colors of dreams,
Dreams we create with desirous schemes.
I'll use shooting stars to write I love you
On stellar blackboard, this night anew.

We'll fly past galaxies on gossamer wings.
I'll tell our favorite stars of special things
You've done since you touched my heart.
From you I can never live apart.

You're the face in the misty light of the moon,
The laugh that floats on cosmic breeze in June.
You're the magic spark of nature's fiery cone,
The ember of joy I call my own.

Venus and Cupid sigh when I tell you
I feel so very lucky to be loving you.
The one I run to when each day is through,
I simply can't take my eyes off of you.

The morning light may steal this moment bright
And take away the stars of the night.
We'll have the memories by love's brush drawn
That color our dreams and light the dawn.

Look into my eyes and see the sparkling stars,
Those thousand dreams that become ours.
Listen to cascading stars chime in whispers,
I'm yours until the end of time and vespers.
