Treasure This Day

Treasure this day, with wishes born
In happy hopes both new and old
And of desires now fulfilled
And with breathless beauty waiting to enfold
God Bless such a love, on a day so fair

There is sweet scent of lilac in the air
With the dawn of hope, and the sky of blue
This morning woke bright with pearls of dew
This is the day of prayers and vows
Of tattered shoes, and showered rice

Now before us, our bride adorned with lace
So gowned with joy, white reflecting her grace
With captured eyes, stands our handsome groom
The hushed Bach Sonata....envelops the room

A mother's soft tears, a father's smile
As he takes her hand in his, and gives a gentle kiss
Of laughter and of childhood years
Now gone in a whisper....gone in a tear

A day they will remember, all of their lives
Two strangers who came, to this covenant place
Will leave here as one, as a miracle embraced
Forever together...may this always be
A love that endures together, throughout all uncertainty...
Loving and faithful...for all eternity....
