Love Poem about Marriage

This poem was written as a surprise reading to my mum and step-dad on their wedding day (October 23, 2009).

I included the things that I see them happily doing, like when they wake up in the morning and she makes his tea, they look as in love as the day they met many years ago.

Like any couple, they've had their ups and downs, but this poem reflects what I think will keep them going 'til death do they part.

The Secrets Of A Good Marriage


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011 with permission of the Author.

Growing up I've learned about love.
I've been surrounded by it every day.
I'm so glad you've both found it,
And it's why we're here today.

They say there are secrets to a good marriage,
That there are rules to obey,
But the most important rules of love
Are what you two do every day.

It's the 'hey babes' in the morning,
It's how she makes his tea,
It's the way he smiles at her,
Such a sweet thing to see.

It's never being too old to hold hands,
Or to watch movies on the couch.
It's accepting all the flaws,
Even when the other's a grouch.

It's telling him he's not going grey,
It's the 'You look fine in those jeans,'
It's ignoring the mid-life crisis,
and all her little 'scenes'.

It's facing the world as one,
And it's more than love at first sight,
It's together being a family
Each and every day and night.

It's the way he looks into her eyes,
It's the way that she looks too,
It's why they stand before us,
And it's why they said 'I do'.

And now I stand here today,
On this important moment in life,
With two people very in love,
Now husband and wife.

Growing up, I've learned about love,
And seeing it today proves it true.
You've both taught me so much,
And I'd be lucky to be half as happy as you.
