No one followed her as she ran away
fleeing from the altar on her wedding day
She’d been jilted by Jed her handsome groom
so locked herself away in an unused attic room
The bride’s father went after Jed with a gun
you should have seen the coward run!
The desperate search for Judy was in vain
She didn’t respond when they called her name
Folks assumed she didn’t want to hang around
Many years passed by and she was never found
The house was auctioned after her parent’s died
They were buried at the churchyard side by side
The new house owners were in for a terrible shock
When they ventured upstairs and unpicked the lock
They found Judy’s skeletal body in her dress of lace
Cobwebs hung like curtains from her once lovely face
Jed’s dust covered photo lay in her hand
Judy never got to wear her wedding band

His jazz collection fills the spare bedroom
Music man, you see, was his nom de plume
Our wedding album rests on the nightstand
A keepsake for my viewing on demand
The tarnished silver comb that stroked his hair
Lays on the dresser beside his easy chair
The carnation he wore on our wedding day
A keepsake preserved in a glass display
The love notes he sent are bound in a box
I read them again when life deals hard knocks
His old Volvo still sits in the driveway
In it he proposed to his fiancé
I’ve clung to these treasures, lived in the past
Keepsakes from four years that went by too fast
Comfort they bring as he watches from above
John, my husband, the only man I’ve loved

The date was set and the church booked up
Invitations sent out, colors picked, and a hall for the sup.
The bridesmaids and groomsmen had all been chosen
For the date for us on the calendar was now frozen.
The Maid of Honor could only one person be
The Best Man knew this day would be crazy.
For all of the planning, the work, and the tension
Would culminate in this day of anticipation.
The minister counseled us and helped us to plan
But the burden was on us, for this day to span.
We wanted everyone to be as happy with us today
That's why we took so long to plan it this way.
The floweres trimmed the aisle along the carpet white
While all our family and friends dressed festively tonight.
The music started to play as the couples walked the aisle
I was reminded not to cry, instead to give a big smile.
It was my turn to walk the walk now
"Don't slip, don't trip, don't cause a row.
It's the day of the wedding and there is my peer
One question remains, "What am I doing here?"

If I held you close would you mind?
If I said to love me a minute longer would you have time?
If I said to kiss me would i feel that you care?
If I looked at you for hours would you mind that I stared?
If forever is what i wanted would you promise to be true?
If I told you would you believe me If I said I love you?
If all these things I ask of you, you tell me you can do?
Then theres one more question that I have for you .....Is your answer I do?

Its the morning after the night before
As i leave my new wife, whom i lovingly adore
My orders came through, overseas i head
With my band of brothers, not knowing what's ahead
Married for days, whilst conflict takes him away
Holding sheets where we slept, my memory bouquet
At the bottom of our bed, there lies a virgin white rose
With a note beneath i am in momentary froze
I sit and stare as to what it might say
Knowing this is the day my love flies away
My darling Tinks i leave this white rose for you
Its pristine appearance describes my darling so true
It symbolises you, so innocent so pure
With your love in my heart, i will return i assure
Think of the day, from these distant lands from beyond
For the morning after the night before, we will respond
This virgin white rose, so bridal so pure
You and its safety i will secure, for you to return for our future
The day you come home, it shall lay on our bed
And we will continue our lives, as you have always said
I will go about my tomorrow's, thinking of you every day
And prey that this virgin white rose, never turns deathly grey

(Borrowed a phone to post this, I hope to have my laptop repaired soon. I miss ... very much)
When your intent to score all my dollars
merely achieved my air-filled, cash poor jars,
perhaps you, too, viewed true the irony
in gaining naught, but leaving me debris.
Casually, you stole a part of me,
an awe-jewel shining in the heart of me.
Permanent black went SOUP inspiration,
so dear to my keen imagination.
Ponder of shatter may not visit you
with feel of all matter you took and slew.
I forgave you and still I forgive more
that such will salve my emotional sore.
Rendered lame by your skilled internet knife
was muse-light I had searched for all my life.
Also blocked dark from your cruel, selfish crime
are relationships I treasure as prime.
Divine grace does lift me above your trace,
while I am perm-stitched in your karmic-lace.

My Cousin's Wedding
Weddings happen here by the dozen
All are fun, especially if a cousin
Get a new outfit, have to look good in the croud
Make the best of the time that is allowed
The bride and groom get set for the night
Alot of time and money go into making sure all goes right
The ceremony is over, the bride and groom set out
The pastor calls them back , marriage license not signed, he shouts (hehe)
The right combination of people, music make a good reception
Where is the beer, head in that direction
Written on the cozie "I'm here for the free beer"
Laughing so much, has us in tears
So many relatives, which kid is for who
Can't remember names, faces will do
The dance floor is open, get out there and shake your booty
Go ahead, get a little fruity
Uncle Johnny does the alligator on the dance floor
Down on the floor, joined by more
It doesn't stop there, the bride leads the pirogue
Like a train behind her, a long line unfolds
Family, friends, togetherness like no other
Before nights end, you will know many others

Just a Wedding Day
Oh, hear the wedding bells peal out to ring
They clang as if they have no heart to sing
The groom arrives, splendoured in tailed suit
A masquerade that shields a thuggish brute
The parents meeting, warmly shaking hands
Judging; which, the most they cannot stand
The lady guests file in with happy strides
Rueing still the day that they were brides
Here comes the bride, beaming down the aisle
When her bouquet is thrown, so is, her smile
Bridesmaids, they all insist, they are steadfast
Best man repeats aunt’s words “It will not last”
With sincerity, the groom, he says, “I do”
Whilst keeping eye on Sandra in the pew
The vicar smiles with joy and yet beneath
That smile, for the pair, he holds a wreath
United, smiling cheese, they are photo’d
The camera clicks at families juxtaposed.

It was their night they shone bright as they danced their sweet dance
Two lovers embraced in their world of romance.
They laughed and they cried as their eyes locked in stare
It was their world for this moment as if no one was there.
And their steps they so flawlessly glided in tune,
To a melody that touched everyone in that room.
Their passion brought envy to onlookers there,
Who secretly questioned their own love affair.
But as the night closed and came to an end
The lovers were blind to what lie round the bend.
The house and the cars and the jobs that went bad
The kids drove them crazy and their savings were drab.
So they fought to hold on to the things in their life,
That caused them so much of their pain and their strife.
They fought with each other like enemies do,
And dismissed in their life everything that was true.
So when sickness and hardships and troubles occurred,
Their vows to commit seemed truly absurd.
Their home and their kids would now take a backseat,
For their moral obligation they chose not to meet.
So I Ask …
What happened to that dance they danced so well?
With passion and truth everyone could tell.
What happened to their dance where they held so tight?
What happened to the wonder of their glorious night?
What happened to the words that charmed their ears?
With a passionate rhythm that brought them to tears.
What happened to those vows that poured from their heart?
The “I love you forever and till death do us part”.
For these aren’t just words we borrow for the day,
From another who tells us this is what we must say.
We say them cause it’s what we feel true in our heart,
It’s a God given blessing we commit from the start.
But these words are now lost as they fall on deaf ears,
Since the pain and the struggles they’ve created these years.
So the lesson here learned dear people of odd,
Is that love is so fragile but made strong with our God.
So stop fighting for power and money or need,
For all of this nonsense is only our greed.
Keep God in your life and he’ll walk you through,
When heartache and pain and losses ensue.
For why commit vows in the eyes of our God,
And not call on him when life gets too hard?
For the truth of our vows we are all meant to see,
is that marriage is not, made of two, but of three
If reading these words ring some truth in your heart,
Decide that today you will make a new start.
Go hug your spouse and say something kind
Don’t let the small stuff cloud up your mind.
We’re all just lost souls who are trying to cope
If not there for each other then where is the hope?
You see, the anger, the fight
that in us abide, Is only the insecure child inside.
So rise up above all this fear and this pain,
And see all the beauty that there is to gain.
By trusting in God and his will for you
Together forever he’ll see you both through.
For life is too short for our miserly ways
cheap on our love hence dreading our days.
He made us to love in all that we do
To wake up each morning and start us a new.
So pray for your spouse, ask God to be kind
To the person you prayed in the beginning to find.
They’re still the same person you loved from the start
But life and it’s troubles have hardened their heart.
You vowed that you’d love them in sickness and health
Now is your chance to show God what you felt.
So rise up my friend, don’t say that you’re through
For what if your loving God gave up on you?

Marriage – our commitment for LIFE as husband and wife
We organised and paid for our own wedding day
This meant we had control and could do it ‘our' way
We got married two years to the day from our very first date
Both of us were bubbling with excitement, we just couldn’t wait
My hair was perfect, make up and manicure too
I wanted to look absolutely beautiful for you
Dress was pretty peach, it wasn’t a formal wedding dress
I’m not one for fussy frills and flounces I must confess
You wore a charcoal coloured suit and looked so very smart
Our vows commit us forever – I love you with all my heart
After our registry office ceremony we had a lovely meal
A carvery for close family and friends, the venue was ideal
We held a huge party for 300 guests later on that night
Our wedding day was perfect everything turned our right
The wedding night was spent at a beautiful local hotel
On learning it was our wedding day they really did excel
They upgraded us free of charge to their honeymoon suite
With champagne and chocolates and fresh fruit to eat

Walk beside me and be my wife,
Enjoy with me this beauty we call life.
My heart glows with happiness when you are near.
I want to be with you forever, my dear.
I tremble at your every touch,
This is because I love you so much.
If there was only one wish I could have today,
It would be to feel this way each and every day.
The sound of your voice fills my heart.
Is there nothing that can keep us apart?
Yesterday is just a dream, our future yet to express.
Let us share this life with our same name and address.
I hope you always say yes!

The fall has remnants of the summer, but the day's not hot,
and all of our beloved are gathered in a woodland spot.
Bearing their good wishes, they have walked the pathway to
this autumnal chapel where I'll make my walk to you!
Around us, in our wedding colors - fall's most splendid hues -
is a bright mélange of flora with a sprinkling of chartreuse.
The tallest oak here is the steeple, reaching to the sky;
its leafy limbs have framed an arbor made to beautify!
Your eyes are dancing, and you wear a sweet, cute pumpkin grin
as I approach, adorned in flowing satin, argentine.
Our union, blessed like nature dressed in hues of harmony,
is sealed with loving kisses under a vermilion tree.

When fate decides to bring you love........
Its a blessings shower from Heavens above
Guardian Angels sprinkling pixie dust, blissfully
To bestow upon you, precious gifts of destiny
Your paths could cross just one fine day
You know when happiness comes --knocking your way
Embrace with open arms, these are worthy treasures
Each gem of the chest ushers in a life-time of pleasures.
You are His chosen one, receiving delightful presents of Fate
He marked one heart and kept aside, your special soulmate
As you tie the knot of love, from within the soul's deep
The promises made to a loving heart, you really must keep
Nurturing your bond as you go from strength to strength
Relishing the joys of matrimony through your life's length
Honoring marital vows with all the faith and fidelity
Sweetness of a graceful marriage filled with joy and dignity
Virtues of humility, forgiveness and lots of patience
Creasing out big and small worries with smiling persistance
Blessings, prayers and wishes pour in from near and far
As the bride and groom unite today under their lucky star!

May passion, fill your spirit at lights dawning
May your smiles, greet and brighten every day
While swaying, to life's dance, partners in this ballet
Find all your solace, in each others arms
while your feeding, on each others charms

Together, you'll greet the winter, and be thrilled

The wedding bells were in full swing, ringing
The choir in the church was melodiously singing
The groom saw the bride entering with a smile
It took his heartbeat, breath away for a while
He couldn’t wait to make her his wife
He’d imagined with her, his entire life
But before he could face her, came in her brother
He asked in an angry tone “How much do you love her?”
“As much as the sky spreads” he answered, it was true
“Okay then you can marry her” the brother said, “that’s cool”
The bride was now a step ahead, the groom’s heartbeat fast
Before he could see her properly, came before him a task
The mother it was this time, asking him to propose
“Very romantic it should be, else, I’ll oppose”
The groom sat on his knees and said “I love you sweetheart”
“I cannot live even for a sec, even with the thought that we part”
The mother was satisfied, the bride came further
With her next step, the groom faced her father
“You can marry her only on one condition
Give her everything she wishes for, you love should have no limitation”
“Sure” the groom said, and his bride was now before him
But before the priest could start, a lady entered in
“Stop this marriage! I still love you” she said loudly
“Tell me you still love me, don’t marry, and say it proudly”
The bride was surprised, her eyes filled with tears and worry
Just then the lady said, “Oops the wrong marriage, I’m sorry!”
The couple was now happy and they finally got their ceremony right
The groom’s face was lit up and the bride’s was bright
Just then someone called the groom, “Get up son! It’s your wedding today!”
It was then that he realized, it was a dream! But he was sure today was the best day of his life!!

A New Ferrari
By Rick Rucker
We have changed our plans,
We will marry in The Netherlands,
The reason is primarily money,
It is far cheaper to fly there, with my Honey,
An island wedding sounded so romantic,
But the travel planning would have been frantic,
She has a large family, the logistics of them getting there,
I would have lost more of my hair!
Other things are still the same:
The wedding song, and the singer’s name,
Ditto some of the other things,
We will still exchange our rings,
If you have read some of my poems,
You know that I am prone to writing tomes,
I will have to cut it short,
Lest everyone falls asleep in The Court!
Since I am American, they think I am as rich as Ari,
So, just to not shatter their faith, I will give each attendee a new Ferrari!
Not really, but it sounded good,
Please forgive the small falsehood,
I am sure they will be overjoyed,
To see us, how our spirits are buoyed,
There is no way that I could envision,
This happiness, to my friend’s derision,
They do not believe in love at first sight,
I now believe it with all my might!

The first time I got married, it was a church affair.
And as all good grooms, I wanted it to go off with a certain flair.
Everything was ready that I could think of
Now all that remained was to share and profess our love.
The ceremony was beautiful and went off without a glitch
But I never expected my "Best Man's" prankish hitch.
It was at the reception when began my harassment
I would not know the why, but everyone had a comment.
"Don't worry", "It'll be okay", or "You won't need any" people would say
And I didn't understand, why some looked at me in such a strange way.
With a quizzical look on my face I was only perplexed
I didn't know just what comment, next to expect.
Finally, I asked one of my groomsmen being rather shy
If he knew what people meant, and perhaps the reason why.
"It's not you, you dummy, you just never knew...
The lengths to which we'd go, to embarass you."
I couldn't stand it anymore, these comments of chide
I excused myself politely, and looked for a corner to hide.
So off to a quiet place alone, my sore feet and I did go
I took my shoes off to rub them and finally did I know.
It seems that in my haste and hurry, my love to prove
I never even looked, at the bottom of my shoes.
There on the soles, which could only be seen in church when I knelt,
Were two letters on each painted in white...left shoe 'HE'...right shoe...'LP' .

To Love someone with all your hear is one thing
To love someone with all you have is another thing
To love some with all you could be is so sweat
But to Love each other to the point you can't live
without one another it is true love indeed.

A little bit confused was beautiful Spring,
She had to choose for life a bridegroom.
Who will give her a wedding ring?
Three men wanted to be her happy and bloom.
March, April and May vied with each other.
About their great love they quietly talked.
April was for Spring like a brother,
With March she just often liked to walk.
Timid March gave her beautiful primroses,
Out of snowdrops he made a wreath,
He didn’t want to know any losses,
He promised her the whole world’s wealth.
Delicate and sweet was April.
He gave her a necklace of brilliant drops.
The life with him could be stable, - he said,
She’d be rich and would get good crops.
A wonderful May pleaded Spring:
You are my love! Take my wedding ring!
Be quick, Spring! Be my wife!
We’d be happy together the whole life.
And Spring trusted the handsome May.
Without any delay she sewed the white dress,
For the veil she took the apples blossoms.
That was her best and the happiest day.
The whole world was whirling in the dance.
May was getting married with Spring!
The Earth was full of love and romance,
Happiness to all this marriage would bring.

The wedding they’d dreamed of was carefully chosen
For brisk mid-autumn before the ground was frozen
As her freedom fighter struggled in the Mideast
She was absorbed in planning a fall wedding feast
A lively country band in the red barn would play
Magenta chrysanthemums would be her bouquet
Though many of his comrades never made it home
He returned to be wed ‘neath fall’s colorful dome

My Wedding Day Is Special Because...
Sponsor: Olive Eloisa Guillermo
Sacred vows we swore, consecrating two blessed souls in matrimony
The anticipation before I held daddy's hand walking down the aisle,
he gave me a kiss on the cheek and wore a proud smile.
Along the shores of a harmonious island is where we became one,
holiness combined with true dedication, oh my, we were so young.
The smell of his sweet cologne brought me back to the old days,
My tender scent I carried rested gently on my bouquet.
I still remember our vows like yesterday we were on that alter,
we promised to be loyal and forgiving if ever we should falter.
Death may separate our fleshly bodies while here on earth,
but the connected souls we share would prove our days of worth.
We swore that good health would never be taken for granted,
by some chance we get sick, our comfort would never be abandoned.
We don't care about material wealth, more money more problems,
If by some chance we grow poor, our humble nature won't be forgotten.
We took an oath before our family, more importantly the Lord,
and all our dreams of starting a family would be our greatest reward.
Even if the skies turned grey and if our lives should meet obstacles,
the truth of passion would create a future where anything is possible.
Separate entities brought together by the good Lord's plan,
off into the endearing sunset we walked away, hand in hand.

Passion progresses through thoughts of your cerulean eyes
Your name brushes like silk wind through my sapphire skies
Echoes distant across aegean waters burn flames of desire
Striking with the force of midnight lightning blazing my fire
The tickle of your periwinkle tipped fingers charges me up
Fierce as rains from cobalt clouds that never seem to letup
I fall adrift with azure bliss when your lullaby kiss summons
Soft as a baby's cinnamon teddy with cornflower buttons
And today I feel forever royal as we borrow something blue
Powder petals scattered down an aisle simply meant for you
As turquoise tears stream down your face happy for this life
My heart races with electric as you stand to become my wife

I placed a ring on her left hand
A plain white gold wedding band
With all my love this ring is from me
I also wore a ring for people to see
Today the rings have become something more
They also tie us together for evermore
Mine is still on my left hand
From my neck hangs her wedding band
I feel her in my heart and in my life
I still think of her as my wife

A Hawaiian Wedding
by Rick Rucker
A Hawaiian Wedding I have planned,
Near the ocean, on the sand
Together, we will stand,
I will have to stop squeezing her delicate hand!
I just can't believe,
That she is here, and won't leave!
How did this come to pass?
What Magical Spell did I weave to win this Beautiful Lass?
I told her about the Words that I write,
Read them to her, both Day and Night!
Suddenly, I have the notion,
That they brainwashed her, like the tide of an ocean!
Then, like a salesman moving in for The Close,
I finished her off with a lovely Red Rose!
She really didn't stand a Chance,
Her defenses were breached by True Romance!
I know this sounds weird, I'm hoping for Rain,
Then maybe they won't notice how my eyes do drain!
There is only one more thing,
The song that Andy Williams will sing!
So, if in The Future, you hear of a wedding,
And to Hawaii, you're already heading,
Please stop by,
If you don't mind seeing a grown man cry,
For, they are tears of Joy,
She has made me the Most Happy Boy!

Let me start off with an introduction to get you
in the mood to read this poem. Sorry, I did say
something that is wrong to a couple of my readers.
I usually don't make comments regarding any of
my poems. This one is one of my best and greatest
poems I ever have written prior to this one. It
definitely has potential for being poem of the day
but that is up to you all of my devote fans and
readers. Here goes. The title of it can be considered
as either Have A Happy Hillbilly Wedding or Married
Her Mother Instead.
It was either me she did deplore
So she stopped loving me anymore
Or I finally came to all my senses
After suffering from the consequences.
Were both of us meant for each other?
Or should I be like her big brother
Final result was that I will pass
Because he sure is a perfect ass.
Her younger brother was much the same
Maybe I will give him the total blame
For how bad she turned out to be
Like a bird wanting to set me free.
But her father hard to figure he was
Doing what every other father does
Worrying and becoming a big wreck
Can tell when you see each hen peck.
Decided to let nature take her course
Waited until her parents got a divorce
After down path many times being led
Ended up marrying her mother instead.
Was that funny, or wasn't it. Will let you decide.

Starting beautifully with flowers and chocolates, the journey’s long
not just in habits, he’ll show in another side that he’s strong.
It is the right time as both bodies call
no barriers anymore, both have broken them all.
The physical, emotional and psychological all in an out pour
dancing in the purest freedom Adam and Eve once wore.
Love in its finest giving newlyweds such great hospitality
sex at its fiercest, removing all forms of neutrality.
Bed stands and erotic sounds in a tight race
yet not in contention for the first place.
The heat is immeasurable giving out intimacy in great overdose
both devouring this openness cos to others it’s closed.
Opposite private devices in a matrimonial conference like beloved mates
chronic hallucination of a perfect world nowhere near this state.
What lies ahead not thought out by minds now opaque
giving all the sweet shots till involving body parts ache.
Showing clear signs of new comers in marriage’s trade
throwing on them scents and sweets as they begin their upgrade.
Starting off heavenly as time shows with sour tastes it is tinged
and on its door, choices and decisions stay strongly hinged.

In mid-winter we will be wed:
Oh, that the cool whiteness could be sped !
How my heart waits for her cool embrace
And the feel of snow flakes on my face,
Running warm through her frosted trees,
Watching the river’s fastness slow to freeze,
And the warmth that follows a ski-run,
And the snowshoe races full of fun.
Waiting so long is a weary task,
Till I’m crumping her white damask
Into pearl-grey hollows ,
And shaping shallow billows.
Then our hands touch in warmth and we know
There’s only a few weeks to go :
A smile from each diamond encrusted branch
Shows my face all a-blanch.
As my love walks close by me in a hush
My heart overflows at her special blush.
On sunlit silver snow no cold-eyed tear.
Oh my heart yearns for wintry land soon this year !
