“Promise me you’ll watch”

Promise me you’ll watch ,
With eyes that are my own,
And stand beside my spirit,
So I will not be alone.

You’ll be there in the mirror,
Placing flowers in my hair,
Making the moment perfect,
Despite the happy tears.

Promise me you’ll listen,
When the music starts to play,
Because everyday  to heaven,
I’ve prayed you’d  see this day.

A day that once brought questions,
To a little girls fragile mind,
If daddy forgets about me,
Will I be left behind?

Promise me you’ll hold my hand,
As I walk into gods presence,
To give my hand in marriage,
And ask him for is blessings.

Holding me in spirit,
With  a warmth all your own,
Feeling all that I feel,
And all I have ever known.

Promise me you’ll walk,
Down that cherished aisle,
And give away your little girl,
With my very own smile.

A child in your image,
Your image often seen,
But promise me you’ll be here,
And cherish what it means.



 Only after trying so hard to let go, did i realize how much i wanted to hold you forever> Amber and Ellis forever and always

Amber, this is cleverly written and
quite a tear jerker.

Thanks for sharing,

This was so beautifully touching. I got tears falling down my face now as I type. I am sure you're father is very happy and looking down upon you as is my Mom. Matter of fact they're up there together..I'm sure  . Hope your wedding day is all you want full of happiness and love. Take care,

AMY

You little Sneaky whachamacalit,

Thought you'd get that puggy little noze by me in the night/day... what time is it anyway. Nice nice work again my poet/friend. Should I tell you again and again how I love the way you make living life flow into such devastating lines. I won't tell you... Maybe you won't find out, but I think I'm just a wee bit late. Somebody already did. Darn-it.

Sincerly, very cute

Amber~
I've always known that the eyes of our hearts are there watching us in our moments of joy and there in tear-stained silence in our times of sorrow.

He will be there with you at the alter
with your loved ones on your special day.

All My Best Wishes, you deserve it. (Lucky) Dale

 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name.  (Michelle A. Bartley)
