Wedding Day

I went to a wedding the other day

and watched as blue eyes met blue

So in love on this first day together

Never hesitating as they said 'I do'

 

It reminds me of my wedding day

I felt regal wearing a tiara with pearls

My grandpa walked me down the aisle

My long hair pulled up in curls

 

The unity candle and the rest of the

ceremony was nothing without that kiss

Our vows we took were lifelong and true

But I couldn't wait till the pastor did dismiss

 

The reception and the food and

the cake I suppose were fine

But nothing compared to the first

dance of bride and groom--divine!

 

Our song played and there was

seldom a dry eye in the room

Our eyes were lost in each others

as I slow danced with my groom

 

Now our marriage is far from 

perfect, but he is my best friend

I will love him till death parts us

Together till the very end.

                        Nice and sweet and so full of beautiful memories! As you pointed out, there is no such thing as a 'perfect' marriage, but there are so many perfect moments!
                        Great poem, Christina!

                        • Christina8

                          Thank you Christina for sharing not only your glorious day but the love you found after which has lasted so long. A refreshing read and may joy wrap you both round as you continue together.

                          • Christina8

                            You are so lovely and romantic. Realist as well. No marriage is perfect. They say that we never take pictures of the bad times, only the good. But it's getting through those bad times together, that keeps the others coming.

                            You're a strong and very sweet lady. Thank you for sharing.

                            • Christina8

                              Thanks so much SM!! It really means a lot for you to say those kind things. Your compliments are appreciated!--Christina

                              Wow Christina. This is so lovely beautiful. Great wedding day you had and great marriage you still having. I love to know couples can stay together for the whole life. I have an ex husbands and two sons and now I've divorced and have another man. Know what this means. I have four guys to cherish and love because once you get married and have kids you still attached as a family. It never ends. We now just got to be a bigger family. You are very sweet sharing your best moment with us. Thanks

                              • Christina8

                                I really appreciate your feedback kind words. Thanks for the read and compliments! Thanks again--Christina
