Tomorrow You're Getting Married

I wrote this yesterday in anticipation of our granddaughter getting married today. she asked that I not publish it until after the wedding at 7:00 PM today. Well, they got married and now I have been given the green light to post this. I am proudly doing so.

Tomorrow You're Getting Married
(with love to granddaughter Bella)
By Franklin Price

Tomorrow you're getting married
A big step in your life
To the one you've chosen and you love
He your husband you his wife

You will become his partner
In everything you do
A fifty fifty proposition
A new family of two

Some may think you're foolish
That it is a big mistake
It is not their decision 
It is your choice to make

You've considered all the reasons
In your heart knows it's true
That this time is the right time
That this marriage is for you

Sorry we can't be there
But when you say I do
We'll be cheering from the breaking waves
And the sand around you too

We wish you both the very best
Sent from our hearts with love
That you have found true happiness
That you're blessed by God above

A Love Song To A Beloved

‘‘A friend once in his youthful flight 
Had found a beauty delight
Though distance stretched them in mileage
But their love was destined to find a page’’

A lark that sings in the morning bright
Ke-ke-li, O Kekeli! My beautiful light
The hanging garden upon my sight
Hands of fate has woven a happy home
A love of current, stronger than the Law of Ohm
Invigorating, a love connected at heart
Which God designed never to part

Where there is love,they say there is a way
Our love I believe is here to stay
Kekeli, my beloved, sing me a serenade
A song of an angel’s grade
That in heaven’s clime pervade
Sing it across space and time
And make it last like a rhyme

My beloved Kekeli! You’re my light
You’re my Hephzibah, my only delight
Thou art fairer than Friedan Betty
Thou art matchless in beauty
So calm and inviting like the blue sea 
Beauty not to be told but for eyes to see

Behold my mistress of fair skin 
Eyes of diamonds, pure and pristine
O Tell me, you whom I was made to love
One, unique in your choicest apparel
Lips of zebra stipes set with a berry
The hanging petals of a blossom cherry
Chief among all my thousands buddies
O Kekeli! The only ruby my finger shall find
And wouldn’t be ashamed to be called uxorious

"For as a young man marries a virgin
so shall your sons marry you, and as
the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so shall your God rejoice over you". Isa 62:5

My Spouse My Friend

No more chasing shadows. I found you in my sight. You came upon my lonely heart on a midsummer night. We strolled along a secluded beach, your hand clenched in mine, holding on to memories of our darkest times...We kissed in the moonlight, underneath the stars, two lovers sharing interests, that's what we are...You saved my heart from drowning as I walked with you along the beach, your hand clenched in mine, the sand at our feet. No more chasing shadows and running with false hopes...I found my love affair...The one who helps me cope.

Rhapsodies of Romance

I see the Moon and Stars smiling at you;
and the gray skies turn bright and blue.
The flowers of fun preen in fresh fragrance,
fishes in the stream of love dance...
To the rhapsodies of our twilight romance.

Oxygen Rushes in to Me

Oxygen Rushes In To Me Written By Brett Somers 12-19-16 The audible plunge, On a Somers night. Cleansing site. My hands free of this fight. I leaned back to throw. In my hand a small window. Moon kissed a glow. Eyes fixed beyond what I did know. Wind whipped my ear, Reminding me of things I didn’t want to hear. She’d stretched my heart, And then let it go. Like a rubber band, She’d let me go. My skin bare, Standing on shores edge. In my underwear. I don’t care. Up to my waste, A tear I could taste, I threw my ring. To break free of the hurting, To break free of the hurting. Above mountain’s silhouette it flew. Above, with haste it knew. Times arch has come to an end. Now, below, brackish waters bend. To consume this thing, To the end, To the end. Fell back into a salty sleep. My new life. And deep my breath withheld. My body aching to be free. Emerged above water’s edge, Oxygen rushes into me, Oxygen rushes into me.
