Hi..I wrote this for a friend a few years ago and if it suits, I would be honored if you would use it...if you would like it 'tweaked' to suit you, please send me an email.


Our eyes meet across the crowded room
and everyone there fades away.
We smile quietly, lovingly,
on this, our wedding day.

Our love was unexpected,
But we know God played a part
In bringing us together
To share one life, one heart.

We have one very simple goal,
To cherish our hopes and dreams
To show those whose lives we touch
Our love is as strong as it seems.

Today weíve pledged to bear
each otherís joys and strife.
Fervent in the belief that
we were destined to be man and wife.

Hi, I found this one by the very talented

Marilyn

"Sacred Band"
I slip this ring upon your hand,
Unbroken circle, sacred band.
And with this ring I vow to you,
Throughout our lives I will be true.
Through all the times when tempers flare,
Although I hope those will be rare.
Through all the times of painful woe,
I'll stand beside you - shield the blow.
Then in times of joy and bliss,
I'll laugh with you and share a kiss.
I'll listen when you need to talk,
I'll hold you tight and be your rock.
I'll understand your funny ways,
I'll tolerate your witless days.
I'll love you true with all my heart,
'Til death, my love, do us part.
As all the years fly quickly by,
A tarnished ring may catch your eye.
The circle still unbroken be,
Just as the vow I promised thee.
For tarnish taints the surface shine,
It can not touch what lies behind.
The precious metal, symbol of,
My never ending, purest love.

*****************************

Marilyn, this is simply perfect.....(sigh)

I wrote this for a friend's wedding a while back, though it may be too short.

On this day,_____, in the first year of this
                millenium,
              blank and blank
are wed, pledging their love to each other
              forever and ever.

May they always be true to their vows,
Loving and respecting one another.
May they always see the love in each otherís eyes.
May they not just live life together,
But experience itís gifts and delight in itís joy.
May the stars shine brighter than ever in their night skies,
May they find their true happiness has always been inside,
And now blossoms forth, growing along with their love.
As passing years bring change, may they just look above...
And remember this day, the vows that were made,
The first sweet kiss as husband and wife,
May they both be happy together for all of their lives.

Jeffery...I am extremely flattered that you found and posted that poem of mine here.  
I wrote and read this piece at a friends wedding but what Jeff posted was the unfinish version. Here is the completed piece for your reading.

Wedding Bands
By Marilyn Harrison

I slip this ring upon your hand,
Unbroken circle, sacred band.
And with this ring I vow to you,
Forevermore, to you be true.

Through troubled times, when tempers flare,
Although I hope those will be rare.
Through all the times of painful woe,
I'll stand beside you-shield the blow.

In the times of joy and bliss,
I'll laugh with you and share a kiss.
I'll listen when you need to talk,
I'll hold you tight, I'll be your rock.

I'll understand your funny ways,
I'll tolerate your witless days.
I'll love you true with all my heart,
And death, my love, is when we'll part.

As all the years fly quickly by,
A tarnished ring may catch your eye.
The circle still unbroken be,
Just as the vow I promised thee.

Though tarnish taints the surface shine,
It can not touch what lies behind.
The precious metal, symbol of,
My never ending, purest love.




When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shodows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face...

Hey

Here is a poem:
http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum2/HTML/003943.html

that I think would be incredibly suitable...it is really beautiful...

if you like it I would suggest you e-mail the author first and ask his permission (though I am sure he wouldn't mind...   )

"He looked across the
silky surface of the Severn,
and remembered that it
was a famously difficult
river with fierce tides..."
