Oh my darling the news is so bleak
I saw the consultant only last week
Think we better start making plans
See the vicar; hear the wedding banns
All I’ve ever wanted was to be your wife
For better for worse, through trouble and strife
The consultant confirmed I’ll not last the year
Oh kiss me my darling; just hold me so near
Wedding plans float around in my head
My dying wish is that we should wed
Time is running out so we mustn’t linger
I want your wedding ring upon my finger
A simple ceremony, just as quiet as can be
All I ask my darling is that you stand by me

Cherry blossoms stargaze as spring air comes;
East and west cross at Bells of Ireland: warm and calm;
Welling slowly to cede: tender sage thoughts,
Upon two hearts link, after hundreds of sought and fought.
Cathedral posts accent with ribbons of violets.
Congregate white orchids grin alongside the aisles,
Roseband sings tunes: forget-me-not to highest.
Wearing her lavender gown,Heather walks with smiles;
Clasp in her hands,tulip bouquet, guests she stun
Her Lilac in tuxedo waits: eyes locked tight in knot
Gentleness bestow from heavens, ever won
Their iris fuse glued; love radiating allot
Matching band's inscription: embroidered golden rings
Baby's breath, a grand wish soon very soon, will spring.
NOTE: All bold words are different flowers.. :) I always love flowers. I am always fascinated of their beauty and charm but more than these I am inspired by them: philosophically and emotionally as well ... :D

Importance of Humility / Reward For Generosity
He told a parable to those who had been invited, noticing how they were choosing the places of honor at the table.
"When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not recline at table in the place of honor.
A more distinguished guest than you may have been invited by him
The host who invited both of you may approach you and say, 'Give your place to this man,'
Then you would proceed with embarrassment to take the lowest place.
Rather, when you are invited, go and take the lowest place so that when the host comes to you he may say,
'My friend, move up to a higher position.'
Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, But the one who humbles himself will be exalted.
" Then he said to the host who invited him
"When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment.
Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;
Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you.
For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

An angry Father, that wore a frown
has watched the rise of the devil's moon
While pacing, he's worn the carpet down
They arrive at dawn, and none too soon!
Broken curfews, her virtue at stake
The stakes are high, but the daughter dared
Dad quickly plans a wedding date!
No explanation or sage to share
They are ushered in, without a sigh
Their vows would choke the most aloof
It clouds the starlight in their eyes,
and shoots the moon, un-bullet proofed!
This patriarch must take a stand
Holy wedlock was in high demand !

Love share thoughts in this particle of time
"I adore your dress" "you are my groom on fire"
On the 29 of December we'll share: "you will be mine"
So we won't die of loneliness, depicted of desire!
And for love and sickness we'll walk through
Smiling and Sharing our dance at last
With no more moments of blues !
Its time, let's toast "to love" , "to all the guests!"
And here we are, embraced by beautiful flowers planted on the ground
This feels like Eden, sharing our ballroom song;
We are the one, just look around..
All tables made of marbles topped with laces that are strong!
Our vision, family members smiling, and yelling a ton...
"Caviar is served let's cheer the happiest Couple who has won!"

Semovedly thine voice shall have no echo to hear.
Inly there be only hollowness to see no distant.
Natheless hardy wind, thou shall be inconsistent.
Gradual flow upon thee, wilts bring many a tear.
Wellaway can be withered upwards into cheer.
Iwis my heart and thou will bloom constant.
Thole stint without thee voice, time is non-existent.
Hark thy sweet melody showers over my fear.
Courage of mine shall champion forthcoming tune.
Heavenly fairies shall dance for both our souls.
I shall cherish and marry in month of June.
My love will grant me all musical controls.
Erelong our passion will bloom as we swoon.
Singing with chimes enriches our passionate goals.

Symphony is playing softly in the background.
He seems to be out more now.
He calls me regularly telling me his whereabouts.
Then he comes home after his workout.
Our relationship is on the up and up.
The heights we reach states we are a perfect couple.
Our talk about the day brings a closeness.
As the clock chimes late, we both sigh for a mental release.
We find each night of intimacy to be quite fulfilling.
This time we have together, we cherish.
Our wedding vows were written by each.
We both play our part.
Our happiness is based on love and trust.
PENNED ON AUGUST 28, 2014!

(Dedication: For Michael and Clara
on Your 1st Wedding Anniversary)
Observe and see the love that fills,
Urge knows a touch that blooms and grows;
Reach out and be one with fond thrill.
Abide deep nudge in feisty glow,
Near or far sense a lovely cheer;
Niche in twin hearts a starry dome,
Indulge swift tense that works right here;
Voice a fine art in thoughts of home,
Explore the world with grand delight;
Reap in good time the pulse of spring,
See lovely swirls beyond mere sight;
Appoint fond chimes to laugh and sing,
Remember joy in healthy play,
Yield splendour's ploy through night and day.

The bride wore red - a Christmas berry red,
so pretty in its contrast with the white
of snow along the tree lined path which led
her to a place that streamed with morning light -
a clearing with an alter in the wood!
The day had grown quite mild! In winter’s sun
good friends and relatives in jackets stood
to see the happy couple joined as one.
Three colors decorated that bright day:
surrounding green of pines and white of snow
with roses red and white in bride’s bouquet,
and in her hair a sprig of mistletoe!
The groom’s adored had got her wish come true -
A Christmas wedding in each yuletide hue.

ONLY THE STRONG WILL SURVIVE
God gives not peace, it's only dreamt by man,
in all the world ,brought from catastrophe,
all things are made, since time was first began
by things upheaved so new life comes to be.
The weak must fail, be eaten by the strong,
and losers die the death along the way,
so new life grows, even if it is wrong,
there is no time the poor will have to play.
The lion who will lay down with the lamb,
will have a feast before the day is done,
and all the world will never give a damn,
nor care about the giants and their fun.
The hunter takes his aim and fells the dove
the weak in life are only dreaming of.

On the wedding
The Bishop co-ordinating
Called in the groom
Only awaiting the bride
Hymns going up in the air
Half hour passed
And yet she is unarrived
"What is delaying you?"
The groom yelled at the Bishop
"Your bride isn't here"
With a dimple from the groom's cheek
Loke side way at his bride
"He has long arrived
I am gay"

Band of gold upon she - she betrothed in
to temptation's ripened fruit gorged in he;
to bear for and new alliance begin
the noblest sweet love of matrimony!
And hearken a voice in this time and place:
"have I told you lately that I love you"...
to march down the aisle of brides in veiled trace
and have fairest of consorts vow "I do".
When in union of purpose fates align
that consent which is whole - not halves amiss,
and exuberance of gay hearts and wine
gently pause in virtue upon sworn kiss.
Then she looks up and screams "what have I done"
and ponders "do I stay or do I run".

His wrinkly hand with sweat, in the palm a ring
her fading eyes regard with a touch of love.
The crowd await in awe the choir to sing
in tones of harmony flying like a dove.
His long-spanned life that spent many a day
with distant thoughts in those he could not hold
for death has trodden restlessly his way
but now this past determinedly will fold.
She has a bleakish history, of sour
events her family knows the tale too well.
Her smile now hides her troubles by the hour.
Bouquets of flowers witness the church bell.
The couple seal the union with a kiss,
A joyful day no one should ever miss.

A bouquet of white blossoms in your hand
So wistful is the springtime rose that waits
With a mauve dress of silk and beaded strands
Lost moment of time, lingers at the gate
I bear witness to thy heart's devotion
Bringing tears you would never know to shed
My view conceived, with such emotion
A time revealed, before tomorrow's dread
Tho' years have gone, I'm witness to the pages
A day that lingers, captured in two faces
A love that lasted, long beyond the ages
Forever held, locked in love's embraces
Intrigued I weep, when closed mine eyes to sleep
Find comfort last, that by his side you keep

The perfect wedding would be with the one who you love,
Where you both fit together like a hand in a glove.
Your wedding dress is as white as snow,
Looking at yourself in the mirror preparing for your Romeo .
You feel like you're a Queen,
You've dreamed of this day since you were a teen.
You're hair in curls flowing down your face,
Hoping a strand doesn't move out of place.
Your makeup looking flawless,
Your lucky because you're so blessed.
There are red roses sitting everywhere,
It's so breathe taking you can't help but stare.
Rose pedals sprinkled down the aisle,
Glad this day is here because it's been a long while,
As you walk toward your man you smile,
Holding back the tears that are starting to compile.
You get a rush of emotions that almost overflow,
You're so happy that your face has this glow.
When you finally arrive to your Groom you place your hands in his,
You're so excited because you've been waiting for this.
You wrote your own vows and so did he,
Because you want to express how it's meant to be,
As you hear his vows a tear rolls down your cheek,
When you've read yours, he can almost not speak,
This just shows how your love runs that deep.
As he places the ring on your finger for the symbol of love,
You know this is a blessing from God up above.
You place the ring on his finger and the deal is done,
Now the life of two becoming one has begun.
Sealing it with a kiss that your love will last eternally,
Husband and wife for all eternity.

The swift and silent missiles swept,
The quiet well kept neighborhood.
They ran like hell, those that could,
While the reposed laid in their best dress.
With evil-doers upon the earth,
Vigilant must be the pursuit.
To cut the sickened by the root,
And banish vile impure thought.
With white-collar crime for collateral,
It matters not the costs.
As pockets line, the death toll climbs,
While the positioned take sabbatical.
And I cannot hide my bastardness,
For when we kiss my lips fall dead.

There is a wedding in old London town
A handsome man and his radiant bride
Ivory silk made up her graceful gown.
A merry throng had gathered in the street
To see the carriage in which they would ride
They cheered to the rhythm of marching feet
The bells are ringing out the happy news
To tell the world a prince now has a wife
With waving flags of red, white and blues
The man who shall be king has found his queen
And together they stand in love and life
As one to face the joys as yet unseen
There is a wedding in old London town
The bells are ringing out the happy news

A walk through the forest
So lightly and fair
Puts friendship to the test
He'll surely be there.
Meeting under the tree,
So great and so old
As she arrives to see
That he was quite bold;
For looking spies him there
On one bended knee,
Not a look of despair
But happy he'll be
When she lifts him back up
his face in her hands
Then her lips do his brush,
she makes him her man.

THE WEDDING OF MONSIEUR L'VAMPYRE
I make you mine tonight, to have and hold,
to lie forever in this love I feel,
I bring an end to ever growing old,
and close your eyes, to all that is not real.
I give you love, that others never know!
The joy of life found only in its' end!
And dressed in love, we go, as we must go,
into the dark! The night! The only friend!
I give you death! Then take you ev'rywhere!
To know all things; and answer to no-one!
To have it all! To do as you would dare!
within the dark, where life has surely gone!
I make you mine! I sink my teeth into
your waiting flesh, and drink the love of you!

It’s not a typical date nor Valentine’s Day
A date to remember for the rest of my life
So there’s my wedding dress- this is not a play
I’ll soon to be his beloved beautiful wife
Everything is perfectly set by His time
I won’t deny that I’m loaded with excitement
Here’s the moment to taste my husband’s lime
Everlasting promises are our enchantment
This 14th of February truly remarks my history
A melodramatic joy from my deepest within
Love strikes us both with bunch of mystery
As we’ll build our own family – about to begin
It’s not a typical Valentine’s Day for him and me.
February 14 - a date to remember till eternity

Sacral veil that shrouds bright hopes, dark fears
Screening altar that christens so deep a bond
Scrolled with the innocence of carefree years
Sacrificial shutter signifying all self-serving interests will abscond
Separating from the corporeal ties that correspond
Shade shielding truant desires from the dawning light
Mantle that merges burgeoning stems into fertile frond
Curtain hiding fawning beauty; maiden's honor not to spite
Mysterious tapestry woven to purposely slight, then seemlessly delight
Universal symbol sanctioning fealty, consecrating fidelity
Satin awning whose placid eaves opprobrium doth disquiet
Temporal cloth lifted; two souls span the bridge to immortality
Ceremonial threads relegated to the scrapbook of blanching time
Cherished patent that spawned a new love in it's prime

In Devizes, during Carnival, we have a Confetti Battle...
We dance in town, as bright confetti falls
Upon our hallowed ground, we move as one
The old and young among the market stalls
All blessed by Ceres and the setting sun
We move as one, we laugh, we catch the light
In coloured flickers deep within our eyes
A cloud of happiness, a merry flight
Of beautiful beribboned butterflies
We dance in town, bedecked like bridesmaids gay
Our hair all strewn with prettiness and joy
Our cares for one brief moment blown away
We move as one, man, woman, girl and boy
As, blessed by Ceres in her wedding gown
We all, as one, are married to our town

The romance between them female and male,
From her dying inside from all the pain.
Their love like a moon shining oh so pale,
And them thinking they were going insane.
From the late nights of fighting and crying,
To the dates that went wrong in both their ways.
They both found out of each others lying,
And cheating that took place the past few days.
Punching and kicking, being tossed around,
The bruises, the blood, the black-and-blue eyes.
She shouts and screams when she falls to the ground,
The neighbors don't help when they hear her cries.
But on the wedding day nothing is said,
And the truth came out when they found her dead.

Love at first sight they all say without thoughts
Now a days people use the word love easily
Some think that love is an item and can just be bought
I think that love is natural just like a lily
Like a lily it blooms and hopes to be sought
When people really fall in love they feel silly
Sad they wish that hearts can be easily caught
But to think about it, hearts can be moved so easily
Things like feelings from someone have hearts been bought
Just like everyone I said Love so regularly
Love is a meaningful without doubt
I know that love too can be treat you harshly
Even trust comes but without trouble will come through
But through the hardships you hear love so clearly

Your eyes have made me see within the dark,
See past the fear and sorrow in my life,
Your eyes a fire within my soul does spark,
This is the reason you should be my wife.
Your soul it seems has fused within my own,
Two lonely souls are now becoming one,
My purpose here on earth, your love has shown,
Our hearts are now to join in unison.
I love to feel the calm in our embrace,
To feel the passion with every kiss,
The world melts away when I see your face,
And life with you has been absolute bliss,
Your beauty, strength and courage radiate,
And in my heart I know that this is fate!

A vow of lies I should never have said,
Two words I wish I’d saved for me and you;
My wasted innocence on the wedding bed
Defiled the words of love that say ‘I do’.
A distant regret now haunts my mind, you see,
While watching you walking down towards me;
My vision of taffeta, lace and silk
Tainted by a past of the devil’s milk.
I seek your smile beneath the bridal veil,
My comfort before promises are made
And I give my heart as regrets now fade.
Later when I sip from your holy grail
And yield to the power of loving spells
I recall the joy of our wedding bells.

My love you have found me in my proudest hour.
My dear I found you in my prayers so clear.
Soon we shall be bound in harmony of power.
Soon we shall be together in a bond so sincere.
Take my hand and promise to love me forever.
I take your hand and swear to cherish your heart.
Holding hands honoring each other in this endeavor,
Now we share words that can never be torn apart.
Looking into each other’s eyes, glistening in love,
Seeing each other’s hearts shine in heartfelt gold,
Standing so very close, watched by angels above,
We fold together for our binding kiss does unfold.
Bound in matrimony today, we placed our rings.
Upon each other’s fingers, now our passion sings.

I am proud to have birthplace as London.
It is as if I could choose it myself.
It is not if I left it so sudden,
surely, or could I be left on a shelf?
Marriage prospects are good in old cities.
They are much better than where I am now.
I don't say this to garner fresh pities,
even, to proffer advice on the how.
I would like to be married this season:
I'm afraid of going out on a drift.
To admit it is not a high treason!
If you thought that, I would surely be miffed.
Oh, I want to be married, oh hang it.
I'd love it, mainly, to show you my kit.

Embark with zest a journey quest;
Dance here and now that happy bloom,

Niche faith and hope in warm embrace,
Quiz love's bright hues beyond reason;
Urge sculpts bold scope to meet life's pace,
Ebb and flow here in lovely chimes,
Touch love that steers warm space and time.
