Idealized Love

I watch as they repeat their vows, Darling granddaughter and her love. Each looks into the other's eyes As though directed from above. Loving them both, I say a prayer. I pray the fairy tale will last. Zealously, jealously I beg, Each day their love remains steadfast Dear Lord, for them I dare to ask. Love that grows stronger every day, Oh, how I wish that for these two. Vows remembered and vows renewed, Each partner staying strong and true. 10/5/14 (My last unmarried granddaughter and her love were married yesterday.)
