Wedding Day Thoughts


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2006 with permission of the Author.

On your wedding day we ponder
All the stages that you've known
From the time that you were little
Until now that you are grown
But most of all we look forward
And try to guess, and project, and see,
How will your life progress
What will you do, where will you be
Will you move closer to us
Or move even farther away
What kind of work will you want to do
Once you have worked more days
Will you be dedicated to each other
Enduring all as husband and wife
For all the experience behind you
That has brought you to this life
Put that experience to good use each morning
To keep you from growing apart
Your wedding ring should bind and hold
Two hearts as one from the start
But backing that ring with true commitment
Will see the battle through
And for your love to grow
And stay so strong and true
Work each day to become
Each other's very best friend
Then you will be a couple
Unbreakable without end
Work each day to become
The lover each other desires
That's the way to always
Light each other's fires
Work each day to become
Each other's religious stock
That's the way to always
Have a marriage like a rock
This last promise we will make
To you for the days to come
Be all these things to each other and
Your marriage will never be undone
