Wedding Poem

This poem was written from the heart while commuting to NY by train. It took a few days, and each day some fellow commuters would look at me with a concerned face because the tears would come each time I wrote a new line. I don't know what they were thinking, but they must have thought I was very unhappy. Little did they know I was happy and anxious at the same time... Eventually, I really did get a beautiful little granddaughter!

Today's My Daughter's Wedding Day

©

Published: July 2011

Today's my daughter's wedding day.
And a wonderful thing it is;
To see her so excited,
So happy to be his.

But once she was my baby girl;
My first born, love of my life.
But now she is a woman,
And just became his wife.

Once she was my baby girl,
Loved her daddy, and her toys;
But then, I couldn't stop it,
She grew up, and loved the boys.

Today's my daughter's wedding day.
How fast the time did go;
From little feet, and Sesame Street,
To a wedding gown it flowed.

From golden locks, and lollipops,
She grew up straight and tall.
From baby things, to a wedding ring;
How I loved her through it all.

And now she will go forward,
To enter married life.
To share the good and bad times,
The happiness, and the strife.

I wish them both, the best of luck;
With a prayer that my eyes will see;
That God will Bless them with a baby girl,
Just like he gave to me...

I have been looking for a poem to put in the front of the wedding scrapbook I am making for my daughter. This poem is perfect except for the last two lines since she is unable to have children. I changed it to something more suitable and can't wait to finish the album and give it to her.
Thank you,
Bev

Amanda, your peom inspired me so much. On Saturday the 27th of August my beautiful daughter Genna married Shane. Like most mothers I wanted to do a reading and after seeing your poem I knew what to do. I changed the words to show how I felt about my own daughter and also added a couple of verses to make it very personal to me. There were lots of tears from the guests included a few of the men. Thank you for the inspiration. Xx

I read this for my daughter at her wedding day before we showed a photo montage of her and the grooms life in photos and photo's of them together.

Thank you
Amanda
