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.
(My last unmarried granddaughter and her love were married yesterday.)

If I were to write about love
I would start with a word
I remember before my grandmother died
she would recomend
I get a job in the writing world
the acting world
and then she's gone.......
I remember the rain....
how one life affects another.....
if i were to write about love....
i would start with a word....

W hen a wedding took place
A t Cana in Galilee
T he mother of Jesus said to Him
E very wineskin is empty
R emember the story from long ago
I nto the ceremonial pots* water was poured
N ot wine but just plain water to wash hands and feet
T o clean away the dirt(sin) of the world
O ut came wine(His blood) a New Covenant
W ine to cleanse away all sin
I nto the ceremonial pots* water
N ew wine, great wine, the best wine came out
E ternal love, grace, salvation _Eternal Life came in
Ceremonial Pots were pots that contained water
for washing away the dirt of the world or the
sin that the Jewish people came in contact _
Remember Jesus washing their feet..
The water = the law
The Wine= allegory or metaphoric language to speak of His shedding of His blood on Calvary or of drinking His Blood at the Passove
or in our communion of today...

Married under a lavish evergreen canopy,
aromatic blooms filled the evening air.
Grand was our cathedral of open sky.
on the twenty forth of May (your grandparents' anniversary).
Lying above us on an old lower limb:
initials side by side, theirs and ours,
artistically carved by him and you, many years apart.
Sweet bridal bouquet of magnolias you cut.
When as your grandfather's tradition to your grandmother,
each twenty forth of May, she and I received a bouquet.
Even after his death you carried on for both of us, then to her grave.
That tree bloomed two lifetimes of bouquets, both bitter and sweet.
Then we parted.... Went our separate ways.
Reality sometimes overshadows romanticism,
although true love never dies.
Deep in our hearts the magnolia still blooms.
I missed you as much as you missed me, those eleven years,
till one day the sun stepped up on my porch.
I knew when I looked in your eyes and felt your embrace,
On the twenty forth of may, I'll receive a bouquet.
Never again will we part.

Weddings sometimes result in funny memories
including when I vowed to be husband and wife
nasty smelly flatulence I had to release
definitely most awkward moment of my life

As you walk through the window in the night
No star in the sky can shine so bright
Gone are my worries and all my fright
Even my intentions to start a fight
Lost in the beauty of your sweet sweet sight
I want to kiss you all over, hold you tight
No it’ll be too late, I can’t wait for our wedding night
Eve, you’re my eve, and I’m your Adam Knight
Please understand I live for you today
Err do not by thinking I just want to play
Rudely why do you keep sending me away?
Everything ain’t black and white, there is gray
It’s true that I can never get enough of you
Rip my heart apart and you’ll see my love is true
And I give my life for my one true love, which is you - only you.

Verify your love for only me
As I express eternal vows to you.
Let the Fourteenth be the magic day
Excitement reigns as we each say "I do!"
No ceremony symbolizes more
Than this one. Life will never be the same.
In joy and sorrow, hand in hand we'll be.
Now let's declare we soon will share a name,
Embracing life together whole and free.

In the depth of darkness sounds, words, just words of meaningless consequence
Never was there a line so cold, so still, overflowing with too much to hold
Elegant lies weaved into one, the crash comes soon as the enchanted deception runs
Vivid colors, blood red pumps and with every word the mind carries the forbidden orb
Idolized perfection of thought and words, lips move as hearts tear, a lived lie rooted in flesh
Trivial tasks made into chores, that one line a promise of vows,rocks hide on crashing shores.
And with the hourglass runs out, sand poured drinks for the parched sitting on stools of doubt.
Bible teachings show guarantees, written in stone, did they know circumstance as these?
Lying now, even now as confessional insomniacs crawl in guilt, the pills to fall to that darkness yet
Even now in crammed spaces, dark rooms, the inevitable black of truth stains the white of lies.

Many people dream of having what you share...
Verisimilar love &
Enthusiastic promises of "Death Do Us Part"
Satisfaction of compromised love!
But only few stick together throughout the journey....

Kissed by the waking sun, the rain of the night becomes undone,
I dream of you, my daily day dream; and the day has just begun
Riding up to Dahisar, I reach yonwards on my bike
Adieux I've bid to bachelorhood, looking forward to our petty fights
No other can fill my life, only you my wife; my lovely snow-white.

At dawn, the air was tinged with the smell of impending heat
Best friends make the best spouses!!
Last night apart was totally overrated. Bachelor boredom.
Uptight? Not by a damned sight. Can’t wait to marry my soul mate!
Everybody’s looking so dapper! How unusual!
Mom and Dad walk with me to the garden, where I see you…
Oh my, do you look like an absolute goddess!
Over 100 degrees under the chuppah; thought we’d be the supper!
Nuptials, circling and consecrating each other, vows, true love and joyous tears
Indivisible for all time, joined as a family, my wife and I. Wife? Husband? Wow.
Nibbling the amazing food here and there while making the rounds
Jubilant and giddy while taking pictures after; the pictures show it!
Us alone for stolen moments here and there
Night fell; we drove off into the sunset with the Blue Moon rising behind us
Ending in sweet togetherness on and off all blessed night

A bond is tied, a new liaison is made
N ovel experiences are satisfying, but the price is paid
G one are the days, when the dinner was just laid.
E very moment is work, and stress is high
L onely labor at toil, she lets out many a sigh
I help out not at all, and she can’t understand why?
N ow I know I am a fool and inconsiderate alike.
E ach has own choices, unfortunately ours are unlike.

Witnessing before God, and taking your vow
Enter into marriage, forever starts now
Devoted to each other, for all your life
Desiring no one, except for your wife
In sickness and in health, till death do you part
No one should come between you, right from the start
Giving of yourself, to make your family whole.
Value the sanctity, of both being “one”
Obstacles are there, for you to over come
Wedding vows are sacred, to show all your love
Straying away, is not meant from God above.

Wandering through the memories, the old couple smiled
Observing fixedly the wedding album kept as a treasure
Naming the photographs that were taken for the leisure
Dwelling on the mind the years that were far in the time
Emerging a wish that will strength their lasting romance
Renewing their vows as a proof of a true love existence
Finalizing the commitment they pledged fifty years ago
Unveiling the devotion and admiration that did not go
Lasting forever until the last day of their existences

I thought by now that I would have
traveled down the aisle of matrimony
I thought by now that a silver band would
have been placed upon my finger
I thought by now that there would have
been well wishes and a honeymoon
I thought by now that there would be, well
you know how it goes
Well, his ways are not my ways, his
thoughts are not my thoughts
It's all about his timing
So, I'll wait with the thoughts that God
loves me so much that he has kept
me for that special someone

Are you the one, the bride I try to find?
Still haven't met you, how can I make up my mind?
How am I to know? How am I to decide?
Waiting for the questions to get demystified
I know that I am patient; I know that I can wait
Not for ever though, it doesn't work out like that
I am sure it'll help me find some answers if we go out on a date.

Wedding bells rang this
We tossed seed
Into air hued
Lilac by shadow,
Laughing with joy though
Papa, he brooded,
And Mama’s red cheeks
Ran freshets of
Tears, brine for the
Years she pampered and
Loved, cared for her girl,
In hard times and good,
Knowing one day
Eros would call,
Tempting our sis, whose
Husband’s a fine guy who
Earned our acceptance and
Really deserved all our
Expressions of cheer and
Shouts of “Good Luck!”
Now, let’s move back to the bar,
Our newlyweds gone, let’s
Toast, again, baby sister,
One ravishing bride and
Married (believe it?)
On this fun, festive day, so
Raise high your charged glasses and
Roar with approval and let’s
Open more bubbly, abolish the clock, and
We’ll party like there’s no tomorrow.

How did I breathe before you were near?
Each lonely feeling made to disappear.
Listening to your voice is music so sweet.
Looking upon you my heart skips a beat.
Oh how this feeling changes my life.
Lost in this moment I know no pain or strife.
Our joy and promise I am certain of;
Victorious union written in stars above.
Everything I am, I give you my love.

When I meet you
Will you make us two
I promise always to be true
Ever faithful, through and through
Walk hand in hand when troubles anew
Down wrong paths, your goals to pursue
The bond we have, will always accrue

I Love you booby
My heart is filled with happiness
When youre lips were made to kiss
Passing day I long for thee
Here's a flower for you to keep
A Hummingbird you are to me
Show me love and let me see
I cried today and sob for soy
Let this day be made of joy
My heart to you is yours to keep
Love so true don't let me weep

G Gooey glaze, oh what a break

My mother-in-law is a blessing
Only to her son
Now that we are married
She has me on the run
The Lady's always changing
Everything I've done
Regrets, I don't have many
She's the only one

A VIRGIN FLOWER
A virgin bride tosses her bouquet in a sendofF.
Every little girl, shouts with hands, hopefuL,
and the beauty that catches it, is met with a bashful, “hellO” –
from the dashing young boy, and so, she gets a previeW.
He hikes a garter up her leg, a tradition of lovE?
Would she be domesticated, a virgin to conqueR?

S-ince January 17th, '97, the world has been in many changes;
M-arital tie though is untouched, no cuts and no damages.
I-ngrained and not broken as it is,
T-wentieth year is in the offing;
H-owever hard life may be, anniversary is worth remembering.
A-lmost China celebration,
N-ineteen years to be exact;
D-espite the temptation, both love and trust stay intact.
L-ifetime bond dies hard for the Lord directs the way;
E-ra comes to an end but the love remains every day.
I-nspired by God's words,
L-et the couple call upon Him;
A-s they enjoy the moment, nothing can ever break them.

E-ndless love for each other
D-oes work wonderful things;
U-nder God's guidance they endure
A-ll forms of trials that life brings.
R-eal love remains in second January,
D-espite distress and sorrow;
O-vercoming all kinds of trouble, they hope for a brighter tomorrow.
A-gainst all odds they stay steadfast,
N-o matter what happens;
D-rifting in the stormy weather, they brave the strong winds.
L-iving together in a lifetime,
Y-ears thirty-four long, isn't easy;
N-ow is the moment to greet them,
N-uptial anniversary may be happy!
