Wedding Poem

Honoring A Late Loved One At Your Wedding

My daughter was killed in a horrific car accident last year at the age of 18. Her brother just got married this year, so I printed this poem and placed in on a little table with her picture. It made us feel like she was included in the wedding. I really feel like she inspired me to write the words of this poem. I would love for others to use it if they lost someone special before a wedding day.

Bridesmaid In Heaven

I am your bridesmaid in heaven, watching you from above.
On your wedding day, I am sending you all my love.

Sorry my time was cut short and I can't be with you today!
If you could hear me, "I hope you can feel my presence," is what I would say.

I am around you in the little things: the bird singing a special song;
I am the butterfly that lingers, staying extra long;

I am the clouds shaped like an angel, floating softly in the sky;
I am the white feather you found so randomly that made you start to cry;

I am the rainbow that appears so suddenly right after the storm.
Today is your day to be happy; for me you must not mourn!

I am your bridesmaid in heaven, the one you cannot see,
But at every special moment in your life is where I will be!
