"I Do"...When we were brandnew
"I Do"...While the wind blew
"I Do"...Before I was blue
"I Do"...As I stood next to you
"I Do"...Right on my Cue
"I Do"...With the boquet I threw
"I Do"...As my uncertainty grew
"I Do"...As our child turned two
"I Do"...Oh, how time flew
"I Do"...Because I never Knew
"I Do"...Before I had a Clue
"I Do"...Now what do I do
"I Do"...How I wish this were true

Something a tad bit different and it just sort of "happened" so I thought I would share it.

You've hit upon the emotions many feel after everything's "been said and done"...very well put!!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

I am so connected to this poems reasons...that I swear you've been peeking...
you know -- that I know --that you know...OH YEA...
I understand...and then some...

"I Do"...Oh, how time flew
"I Do"...Because I never Knew
"I Do"...Before I had a Clue
"I Do"...Now what do I do
"I Do"...How I wish this were true

deep from with-in butterfly...very well expressed...
I wrote a poem once...
"Butterflies Are Meant To Be Free"
the title applies i think ...
take care sweets, jm



 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

My heart goes out to you...I was told this weekend that most couples say "I do" when they haven't got a clue....that inspired this as well as the many feelings that are running around inside.  **Angel Wing Hugs**

Hi Butterflies_Dont_Cry....once again you hit the mark with some familiar emotions"

"I Do"...Oh, how time flew
"I Do"...Because I never Knew
"I Do"...Before I had a Clue
"I Do"...Now what do I do

In my experience some of the best stuff "just happens".

Butterflies. . . I would say that you have hit a nerve with a lot of people. . . I like the take you had with this one. . . most people say, "I do, do you?". . .you dare to ask the question, "Ok, now what?"

Excellent words, my friend. . .

Very touching, and oh so true!

and I am all the better for it~
