Love Poems For Wedding

Love wedding poems describe the love that ripples in the bride’s and groom’s hearts. These poetic tunes fill the heart with joy never experienced and celebrate the precious bond of unity formed.

1. Filled with love

You made me realize how empty I was without you.
My heart was filled with nothing but vacuum
Till you entered my life and filled it with love.


2. Time Travelers

May you take on the world together
with all your hopes and dreams,
may you be each other’s anchor
in smooth or rocky seas.

May you bend to the world’s winds
and brave stalls and storms,
may you find common ground
in all its changing forms.

May you cross stubborn boundaries
and turn many a stone,
may you find haven for your souls,
may you have heart and home.

And if some days are grey
and some nights are long and cold,
May you be each other’s sun and moon
as your destinies unfold.

And should you lose sight of each other
and start to drift apart,
may you circle back by following
the compass of your hearts.

—Terah Cox

3. Love (III)

Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-ey’d Love, observing me grow slack
Form my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
If I lacked anything.

A guest, I answer’d, worthy to be here:
Love said, You shall be he.
I, the unkind, ungrateful? Ah my dear,
I cannot look at thee.
Love took my hand and smiling did
Who made the eyes but I?

Truth, Lord, but I have marr’d them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, says Love, who bore the blame?
My dear, then I will serve.
You must sit down, says Love, and taste my meat:
So I sat and ate.

George Herbert

4. This One Is About Intimacy

Of building a home together.
Watching him scar his hands from fitting
Every door in it’s place.
The silence after.
Trying to catch each other’s breaths.
Creating a to-buy list,
Keeping everything in check.
How much would that cost?
I didn’t know carpets were this expensive.
Taking long naps after that.
Imagining what the white walls will be
When we have three of us running around.

—Yadawanka Pala, twitterpated

5. Eternal Happiness

The feeling of eternal happiness

Image: IStock

This feeling of eternal happiness flowing like fierce river from my heart to yours,
Is the proof that we are united as one.
Help me bridge both ends of this love river
Arresting happiness forever.
I wish your love flows within me as my blood.
It will be proof of you being my second-half.


6. That’s Wonderful Love

How wonderful to win your heart with a smile
How wonderful to kiss your lips with hopeful
How wonderful to get your heart with love
How wonderful to see your soul in me
How wonderful to laugh with your sweet words
How wonderful to hold you tight and kiss gently
How wonderful to fly with you to the dream land
How wonderful to drive you through the mountain valleys
How wonderful to be with you within four walls
How wonderful to give you what you look for
How wonderful to hug you and keep you in my arms
How wonderful to wear our wedding rings on our wedding day
How wonderful to bind your love to last for ever

—Ravi Sathasivam

7. Soulmates

Now I believe in soulmates.
Now I owe you my life
My dreams, aims, goals, achievements.
I promise to share your dreams, contribute to your goals and also stand with you in failures.


8. Cherish Every Moment

Today is the beginning of a dream.
A day where two souls are woven together.
Cherish every moment that life offers.
And celebrate every small pleasure.
Express your love at every chance
And allow it to unfold gracefully.
Show your devotion and dedicate your lives
to the enrichment of each other.
Strive always for honesty and integrity.
Build upon your marriage daily.
And seek to understand each other.
But above all this……
Draw upon the love you feel today
and forever etch it in your hearts.
—Leslie Nielson

9. Sonnet 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments.
Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds,
or bends with the remover to remove:
Oh, no! It is an ever-fixed mark.
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
it is the star to every wandering bark,
whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool,
though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle’s compass come;
love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
but bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never write, nor do I ever love a man.

William Shakespeare

10. To Love Is Not To Possess

To love is not to possess,
To own or imprison,
Nor to lose one’s self in another.
Love is to join and separate,
To walk alone and together,
To find a laughing freedom
That lonely isolation does not permit.
It is finally to be able
To be who we really are
No longer clinging in childish dependency
Nor docilely living separate lives in silence,
It is to be perfectly one’s self
And perfectly joined in permanent commitment
To another–and to one’s inner self.
Love only endures when it moves like waves,
Receding and returning gently or passionately,
Or moving lovingly like the tide
In the moon’s own predictable harmony,
Because finally, despite a child’s scars
Or an adult’s deepest wounds,
They are openly free to be
Who they really are–and always secretly were,
In the very core of their being
Where true and lasting love can alone abide.

— James Kavanaugh

11. Eternal Happiness

From my heart to yours
This feeling of eternal happiness goes on flowing like a fierce river.
Our wedding will bridge both ends and the happiness will be arrested forever.


12. Love’s Philosophy

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
Why not I with thine?—

See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?

—Percy Bysshe Shelley, poetryfoundation.org

13. Song of my heart

My heart is humming a song.
Song that I have never listened to
Nor do I understand its meaning.
These new and fresh love tunes have filled my heart with delight.


14. New Beginnings

May this be a day of new beginnings
the sun, like a fragrant apple; the summer air,
soft on your hands as the kiss of a child.
May berries melt like honey on your tongue.
May your heart rise in wonder
at the clouds drifting across the sky.
May the trails under your boots
be covered in pine quills,
let the leaves rain down
like memories
in the autumn of your heart.
May the snow beneath your skis
run as fast as watered silk,
may the cold air kiss your cheeks,
turn them red as summer’s roses.
May the rivers always flow
with their unexpected beauty,
the first freshets of snowmelt,
the rush of early spring. May you always walk in gladness
through whatever path or highway;
may you always walk within the golden circle of your love.

—Barbara Crooker

To help when things are going wrong.

And I will be the wind.
Whatever we are, you and I
Will always collide.

—R. M. Drake

27. At Nightfall

I need so much the quiet of your love,
After the day’s loud strife;
I need your calm all other things above,
After the stress of life.

I crave the haven that in your dear heart lies,
After all toil is done;
I need the starshine of your heavenly eyes,
After the day’s great sun!

—Charles Hanson Towne, potw.org

28. Chemistry

In the realm of chemistry, so fine,
Your gentle touch upon my arm,
It kindles flames in this heart of mine,
A fire that burns, a wondrous charm.

The spark ignites within my mind,
A confluence of souls, we find,
In your touch, a love defined,
Our chemistry, forever entwined.


Romantic Wedding Poems

Romantic wedding verses help the love blossom between the couple, making their wedding moments memorable. Here are some poems bringing out the real feelings of the couple, their commitment and romance!

29. The Gift

In you are flowers and firelight,
stars and songbirds,
the scent of summer,
the stillness just before dawn.
I love you today,
dressed in glory.
I will love you always-
dancing, singing, reading, making, planning, arguing.
I will love you cantankerous, and tired,
courageous and in terror,
joyful, fearful and triumphant.
I will love you through all weathers and all change.
For all you are is precious to me.
And every day I live with you
and share your love
is a gift to me.

Pam Brown

30. What Greater Thing

What greater thing is there for two human souls,
than to feel that they are joined for life-
to strengthen each other in all labor,
to rest on each other in all sorrow,
to minister to each other in all pain,
to be one with each other
in silent unspeakable memories …

—George Eliot

31. Better Half

I am incomplete without you.
Come to my life like a morning dew.
Only you could be my better half, I always knew.
Let me be the luckiest amongst a few.


32. Untitled

It’s been eleven days since october.
I have been busy trying to fit our lives
Into the space of three whole rooms.
There’s so much of our story left to be placed
On the wall frames.
So much of our love yet to fill
Each corner.
I lay out every furniture in ways you won’t
Have to complain of the distance,
Because this is home now.
You whistle on your way to the door.
We make sure we’re smiling
Before we say goodnight.
We travel back in time, reminiscing,
It’s been eleven busy days since october.
I’ll never stop searchng for ways to call you mine.

—Yadawanka Pala, twit.terpatted

33. The Minute I Heard My First Love Story

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
Not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re with each other all along.


34. The Art Of A Good Marriage

The little things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.

It is never taking the other for granted; the courtship
should not end with the honeymoon,
it should continue through all the years.

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

It is doing things for each other,
not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,
but in the spirit of joy.

It is speaking words of appreciation
and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo
or the wife to have wings of an angel.

It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
understanding and a sense of humor.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,
dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.
It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

—Wilferd Arlan Peterson

35. Married life

I just need you by my side

Image: IStock

Married life is full of ups and downs.
But we will overcome all unavoidable and unpleasant situations.
I just need you by my side and we can swim through.
Illuminate my ways with your love, and let’s ride through.


36. [i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

—E. E. Cummings, poetryfoundation.org

37. In Your Light I Learn How to Love

In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.


38. Jane Eyre

I have for the first time found what I can truly love—
I have found you.
You are my sympathy—my better self—my good angel—
I am bound to you with a strong attachment.
I think you good, gifted, lovely; a fervent, a solemn passion
is conceived in my heart; it leans to you,
draws you to my centre and spring of life,
wrap my existence about you—and,
kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.

—Charlotte Brontë

39. Oh my better half!

Oh my better half,
I am incomplete without you.
I am the luckiest one to have you.
Baby you are my life partner, my soulmate, my dream come true!


40. Love Sonnet 17

I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as one loves certain obscure things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that doesn’t bloom but carries
the light of those flowers, hidden, within itself,
and thanks to your love the tight aroma that arose
from the earth lives dimly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.

—Pablo Neruda, poetryfoundation

41. Touched By An Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
Love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

Maya Angelou

42. Touch The Air Softly

Now touch the air softly, step gently, one, two …
I’ll love you ’til roses are robin’s egg blue;
I’ll love you ’til gravel is eaten for bread,
And lemons are orange, and lavender’s red.

Now touch the air softly, swing gently the broom.
I’ll love you ’til windows are all of a room;
And the table is laid, And the table is bare,
And the ceiling reposes on bottomless air.

I’ll love you ’til heaven rips the stars from his coat,
And the moon rows away in a glass-bottomed boat;
And Orion steps down like a river below,
And earth is ablaze, and oceans aglow.

So touch the air softly, and swing the broom high.
We will dust the grey mountains, and sweep the blue sky:
And I’ll love you as long as the furrow the plough,
As however is ever, and ever is now.

—William Jay Smith

43. Untitled

We still have ways to go
Before we ever learn to agree with each other
And I think that’s important.
A life together should be about
Keeping each other on their toes.
Should be about relearning habits
And ways to say I love you.
Right now it’s mostly
I love you for helping me decorate my dream kitchen
And I love you for lifting heavy furniture,
Because without you I don’t think it would be possible.
It’s small things like that that matters.

—Yadawanka Pala, twit.terpatted

44. A Word To Husbands

True love is the greatest thing in the world
except for a nice MLT — mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich,
where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe.

Ogden Nash

45. Yes, I’ll Marry You

Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear,
And here’s the reason why;
So I can push you out of bed
When the baby starts to cry,
And if we hear a knocking
And it’s creepy and it’s late,
I hand you the torch, you see,
And you investigate.
Yes I’ll marry you, my dear,

You may not apprehend it,
But when the tumble-drier goes
It’s you that has to mend it,
You have to face the neighbour
Should our labrador attack him,
And if a drunkard fondles me
It’s you that has to whack him.
Yes, I’ll marry you,

You’re virile and you’re lean,
My house is like a pigsty
You can help to keep it clean.
That sexy little dinner
Which you served by candlelight,
As I do chipolatas,
You can cook it every night!

It’s you who has to work the drill
and put up curtain track,
And when I’ve got PMT it’s you who gets the flak,
I do see great advantages,
But none of them for you,
And so before you see the light, I do, I do, I do!

—Pam Ayres, poetryarchive.org

46. Believe me

Do I need to promise a shining star and the moon?
Do I need to prove my love by fighting some goon?
Believe me, you only are my moon.
Be mine forever, be my boon.


47. I Rely On You

I rely on you
Like a Skoda needs suspension
Like the aged need a pension
Like a trampoline needs tension
Like a bungee jump needs aprehension
I rely on you

I rely on you
Like a camera needs a shutter
Like a golfer needs a putter
Like a gambler needs a flutter
Like a buttered scone involves butter
I rely on you

I rely on you
Like an acrobat needs ice cool nerve
Like a hairpin needs a drastic curve
Like an HGV needs endless DERV
Like an outside left needs a body swerve
I rely on you

I rely on you
Like a handyman needs pliers
Like an auctioneer needs buyers
Like a laundromat needs dryers
Like The Good Life needed Richard Briers
I rely on you
Like a water vole needs water
Like a brick outhouse needs mortar
Like a lemming to the slaughter
Ryan’s just Ryan – without his daughter
I rely on you

—Hovis Presley

48. Wedding Vow Haiku

I promise to love
and will gladly honour you
but obey? no way!

by Tracy Davidson

49. I’ll Be There For You

I’ll be there my darling, through thick and through thin
When your mind’s in a mess and your head’s in a spin
When your plane’s been delayed, and you’ve missed the last train.
When life is just threatening to drive you insane

When your thrilling whodunit has lost its last page
When somebody tells you, you’re looking your age
When your coffee’s too cool, and your wine is too warm
When the forecast said “Fine”, but you’re out in a storm

When your quick break hotel, turns into a slum
And your holiday photos show only your thumb
When you park for five minutes in a resident’s bay
And return to discover you’ve been towed away

When the jeans that you bought in hope or in haste
Just stick on your hips and don’t reach around your waist
When the food you most like brings you out in red rashes
When as soon as you boot up the bloody thing crashes

So my darling, my sweetheart, my dear…
When you break a rule, when you act the fool
When you’ve got the flu, when you’re in a stew
When you’re last in the queue, don’t feel blue

’cause I’m telling you, I’ll be there.

—Louise Cuddon

50. Your Personal Penguin

To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.

Sandra Boynton

51. A Word To Husbands

To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.

—Ogden Nash

52. Marriage

Finally the day is here

Image: IStock

Weeks and weeks to prepare
Running here and there
Arranging the church
Your vows to rehearse
Hoping your day will be bliss
Preparing the guest list none amiss
Flowers, rings, the wedding cake
Present list for you to make
Wedding cars, ribbons to tie
Emotions running high
Finally the day is here
Time is drawing near
Meet your man, make your vow
Happiness at least for now
Two people joined together as one
Hanky panky when guests have gone.

Mrs Dawn Moore

53. I Wanna Be Yours

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
Breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust
If you like your coffee hot
Let me be your coffee pot
You call the shots
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your raincoat
For those frequent rainy days
I wanna be your dreamboat
When you want to sail away
Let me be your teddy bear
Take me with you anywhere
I don’t care
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your electric meter
I will not run out
I wanna be the electric heater
You’ll get cold without
I wanna be your setting lotion
Hold your hair in deep devotion
Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean
That’s how deep is my devotion

—John Cooper Clarke, johncooperclark.com

54. The Princess Bride

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird,
and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

Dr. Seuss

55. And I Have You

Rain has drops
Sun has shine
Moon has beams
That make you mine
Rivers have banks
Sands for shores
Hearts have heartbeats
That make me yours
Needles have eyes
Though pins may prick
Elmer has glue
To make things stick
Winter has Spring
Stockings feet
Pepper has mint
To make it sweet
Teachers have lessons
Soup du jour
Lawyers sue bad folks
Doctors cure
All and all
This much is true
You have me
And I have you

—Nikki Giovann

56. A Groom’s Thoughts

Wakey wakey open your eyes,
Today is the best day in both of our lives.
Today we’ll be joined in matrimony,
Us together my Princess, you and Me.

Climb out of bed my darling and begin to dress,
I know today you’re sure to impress,
With a flowing outfit I am longing to see,
Made more perfect with your glowing, natural beauty.Your hair’s been done perfect, your make up too,Soon we’ll be married and my dreams will come true.

At the church I’ll be waiting for you to arrive,
To begin the new chapter of the rest of our lives.
There at the church I eagerly wait,
For you to arrive of course fashionably late,
Over the brow the car does appear,
Soon you’ll be in my arms with nothing to fear.

The Wedding March begins the room filled with pride,
To see the joining of love between myself and my bride,
As you walk down the aisle the emotion is felt,
And as my eyes fixed upon you my heart melted.
The ceremony begins and love fills the air,
The love we feel for each other so pure so rare,
With tears in our eyes we say our I do’s,
And promise to each other this love we won’t lose.

The ceremonies over, the register is signed,
The woman I’ve married I was lucky to find,
Next to the reception where good times awaits,
To celebrate the love of two perfect soulmates.
At the reception the food begins to arrive,
On each table conversations are alive,
Two families mixing and becoming one,
New friends and acquaintances now the welcomes are done.
Soon are the speeches from best man and co.,
With smiles and warmth from laughter in flow,
Then with the toasts to us the two,
I gaze and feel my full love for you.
Now the first dance in front of our guests,

Stood close together chest to chest,
The music is flowing my heart begins to pull,
My wife in my arms, my life is now full.
The evening begins and the drinks start to flow,
Everyone’s dancing and enjoying the show,
But times getting on and the room starts to empty,
We thank them for coming and sharing emotions a-plenty.
The evening draws to a close and soon it will end,
But never will our love with me and my best friend,
Our memories of this day will last forever so true,
And remember my wife I will always love you!”

Craig Astley

57. A Vow

I cannot promise never to be angry;
I cannot promise always to be kind.
You know what you are taking on, my darling –
It’s only at the start that love is blind.
And yet I’m still the one you want to be with
And you’re the one for me – of that I’m sure.
You are my closest friend, my favorite person,
The lover and the home I’ve waited for.
I cannot promise that I will deserve you
From this day on. I hope to pass that test.
I love you and I want to make you happy.
I promise I will do my very best.

—Wendy Cope

58. Be my Homer

I wanna be your Marge.
If I’m your Norfolk Broads
Will you be my barge?
Let’s please be Tom and Barbara,
I will show you The Good Life.
Even though we’re not yet married
I would love to be your wife.

I’ve the passion Lily Munster
has for her dear Herman.
I would love you if you were ginger,
I would love you if you were German.
Like Mr and Mrs Huxtable,
We’d smooch even when we’re wrinkly.
I’ll even consider ironing your shirts,
But I hope you like them crinkly.

Like Mr and Mrs Incredible
I’m flexible and you’re tough.
But if you promise to be my true love
That will always be enough.
Like Bonny and that Clyde guy
without all the dying.
Like Gwyneth and that Coldplay man
without all the crying.
My partner in crime, the love of my life,
My muse, my joy, my fun.
Please be my one and only,
Cos you’ve always been ‘The One’.

CJ Munn

59. Marriage Is For Life, Not Just The Wedding Day

Girls, you have to work hard at being wed
It’s not just about what you do in bed!
You have to compromise in this life
From wife to husband and husband to wife

He isn’t perfect (they never are!)
He’ll cherish you less than he does his new car
He won’t do the dishes or pick up his smalls
He’ll belch and fart and scratch his balls

He won’t give you flowers or take you out
Still drinks with his mates, what’s that all about?
But don’t constantly shout, give him a break
Just go with the flow, you must give and take
Cause you’re no saint either, just remember that
You won’t change the wheel when the tyre is flat
‘I’ve just done my nails’, he’ll hear you sigh
Then you’ll render him speechless with a little cry

And girls when you argue, fight and scrap
Just remember why you married your lovely chap
Your knees still go weak when he cracks a smile
He’s your Mr Wonderful, wins hands down by a mile!

So remember to always have a laugh together
To face challenges head on whatever the weather
Talk and talk and talk some more
Make home your sanctuary, behind that front door

For forty long years I’ve now been wed
But I wouldn’t change a thing it has to be said
There’s been pain and heartache, dark moments and all
But we’ve come through it together and we’re still having a ball!”

Denise Jones

60. Recipe For Love

Put the love, good looks and sweet temper into a well furnished house.
Beat the butter of youth to a cream, and mix well together with the blindness of faults.
Stir the pounded wit and good humor into the sweet argument,
then add the rippling laughter and common sense.
Work the whole together until everything is well mixed and bake gently forever.


61. Roll on the Wedding!

The band has been booked, the cake has been made,
the photographer’s chosen, all bills have been paid.
The guests are decided, the menu too;
Something borrowed? Check! Ditto old and blue.

The stationery’s been ordered, along with the flowers,
favours are done after fiddling for hours.
The stag do’s a blur, same goes for the Hen –
won’t be drinking that much in one sitting again!

The dress has been picked,
accessories bought;
there’s nothing to schedule, no more
to sort.
After endless to-do lists for over a year,
it’s time to relax; the big day is here!
Sitting here with my girls as our hair gets done,
I can’t help feeling lucky to have found ‘the One’ –
Just think, by lunchtime I’ll be his new wife!
Roll on the wedding, and our new married life!

62. The Divine Comedy

The more love we receive, the more love we shine forth

Image: IStock

The love of God, unutterable and perfect,
flows into a pure soul the way light rushes
into a transparent object. The more love we
receive, the more love we shine forth; so
that, as we grow clear and open, the more
complete the joy of loving is. And the more
souls who resonate together, the greater
the intensity of their love for, mirror-like,
Each soul reflects the other.


63. United Hearts

God has brought you here together
To be united in His love,
Joined in Holy Matrimony
With faith in God above ring

Let your faith guide your lives
With a measure of God’s grace,
For this is what keeps love strong
Through whatever you may face ring

Keep building your marriage on
The foundation of Christ,
It will not crumble or give way
Through the daily pressures of life ring

But it will stand the test of time,
Growing stronger day by day
Just keep your hearts truly united,
Joined as one when you pray ring

The cord that binds your hearts
Will not fray, or break in two
When you build your lives on God,
He will walk with you.

64. Our Souls Are Mirrors

God must have kneaded you and I
from the same dough
rolled us out as one on the baking sheet
must have suddenly realized
how unfair it was
to put that much magic in one person
and sadly split that dough in two
how else is it that
when i look in the mirror
i am looking at you
when you breathe
my own lungs fill with air
that we just met but we
have known each other our whole lives
if we were not made as one to begin with

Rupi Kaur

65. How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways…

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old grief’s, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

—Elizabeth Barrett Browning

66. The Day Sky

Let us be like
Two falling stars in the day sky.
Let no one know of our sublime beauty
As we hold hands with God
And burn
Into a sacred existence that defies—
That surpasses
Every description of ecstasy
And love.


67. A Bridal Song

Comforts lasting, loves increasing,
Like soft hours never ceasing:
Plenty’s pleasure, peace complying,
Without jars, or tongues envying;
Hearts by holy union wedded,
More than theirs by custom bedded;
Fruitful issues; life so graced,
Not by age to be defaced,
Budding, as the year ensu’th,
Every spring another youth:
All what thought can add beside
Crown this bridegroom and this bride!

—John Ford

68. This Marriage

May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk,
this marriage, like wine and halvah.
May this marriage offer fruit and shade
like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter,
our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as it welcomes the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage.


69. Two Loves

Two loves came up a long, wide aisle,
And knelt at a low, white gate;
One — tender and true, with the shyest smile,
One — strong, true, and elate.

Two lips spoke in a firm, true way,
And two lips answered soft and low;
In one true hand such a little hand lay
Fluttering, frail as a flake of snow.

One stately head bent humbly there,
Stilled were the throbbings of human love;
One head drooped down like a lily fair,
Two prayers went, wing to wing, above.

God blest them both in the holy place,
A long, brief moment the rite was done;
On the human love fell the heavenly grace,
Making two hearts forever one.

Between two lengthening rows of smiles,
One sweetly shy, one proud, elate,
Two loves passed down the long, wide aisles,
Will they ever forget the low, white gate?

—Abram Joseph Ryan

70. Wedding Prayer

Lord, behold our family here assembled.
We thank you for this place in which we dwell,
for the love that unites us,
for the peace accorded us this day,
for the hope with which we expect the morrow,
for the health, the work, the food,
and the bright skies that make our lives delightful;
for our friends in all parts of the earth.

Robert Louis Stevenson

71. Wedding Day Poem

Yes, I am enchanted with you,
My new wonderful mate of mine,
You are my enchantment rose
To bond and hold with love.

Where “L” in love stands for laughter
Where “O” in love stands for obedience
Where “V” in love stands for victory after
And “E” in love stands for enchantment.

This day with you, we do cast
A new family, we do plant
In the parents network of our past
We grow generations to implant.

Yes, I am enchanted with you
And promise with God’s help
To love and serve you always
All the many years left to us.

We both have one great friend,
It is Jesus our lord and guide,
Let us agree to always turn to him
Each day, for steady guidance and help.

Yes, I am enchanted with you,
My new wonderful mate of mine,
You are my enchantment rose
To bond and hold with love.

—Henry E. Henrich

72. The Wedding Vow

I did not stand at the altar, I stood
at the foot of the chancel steps, with my beloved,
and the minister stood on the top step
holding the open Bible. The church
was wood, painted ivory inside, no people—God’s
stable perfectly cleaned. It was night,
spring—outside, a moat of mud,
and inside, from the rafters, flies
fell onto the open Bible, and the minister
tilted it and brushed them off. We stood
beside each other, crying slightly
with fear and awe. In truth, we had married
that first night, in bed, we had been
married by our bodies, but now we stood
in history—what our bodies had said,
mouth to mouth, we now said publicly,
gathered together, death. We stood
holding each other by the hand, yet I also
stood as if alone, for a moment,
just before the vow, though taken
years before, took. It was a vow
of the present and the future, and yet I felt it
to have some touch on the distant past
or the distant past on it, I felt
the silent, dry, crying ghost of my
parents’ marriage there, somewhere
in the bright space—perhaps one of the
plummeting flies, bouncing slightly
as it hit forsaking all others, then was brushed
away. I felt as if I had come
to claim a promise—the sweetness I’d inferred
from their sourness; and at the same time that I had
come, congenitally unworthy, to beg.
And yet, I had been working toward this hour
all my life. And then it was time
to speak—he was offering me, no matter
what, his life. That is all I had to
do, that evening, to accept the gift
I had longed for—to say I had accepted it
as if being asked if I breathe. Do I take it?
I do. I take as he takes—we have been
practicing this. Do you bear this pleasure? I do.

Sharon Olds

73. The Promise

Within this blessed union of souls,
Where two hearts intertwine to become one,
There lies a promise perfectly born,
Divinely created,and intimately shared,
It is a place where the hope and majesty of beginnings reside.
Where all things are made possible by the astounding love shared by two spirits.
As you hold each others hands in this promise,
And eagerly look into the future in each others eyes,
May your unconditional love and devotion take you to places were you’ve both only dreamed.
Where you’ll dwell for a lifetime of happiness,
Sheltered in the warmth of each others arms.

—Heather Berry

74. Love Can…

Love can surely rescue
A heart in deep despair,
A heart that has given up
And no longer feels God near

Love can breathe new meaning
When there’s nothing left inside,
When there’s no feeling or emotion
Just dryness in our lives

Love can restore new hope
After it’s withered and died,
For hope is what will get us through
And love can be its guide

Love can run and embrace
The prodigal returning home
And the one that has come to the end,
Those hurting, lost and alone

For God’s love is the answer
To our broken, empty lives,
As we come with an open heart,
He can dispel all the hurt inside

And He will heal our brokenness
And lovingly, He will bind
The wounds that have left us scarred
And bring soundness to our minds

So give it over to God’s love,
Our lives, and all that we are
Then we will know and walk in His love,
For His love shall dwell in our hearts.
