They Said We'd Never Make It They Said We'd Never Make It

They Said We'd Never Make It
They said we'd never make it,But now we've come this far.Today we celebrate our loveAnd honor who we are. We had a hard beginning,Adults before our time.But growing up together madeOur deepest roots entwine. You are my life, my love, my hope,My friend, my world, my song,The mirror of my unseen heart,The place where I belong. And as our one life passes,Through love we live for two:A cornucopia of joyThat we this day renew.... Poems - Post by : 48630 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 1249

Your Wedding Is A Morning And An Evening Your Wedding Is A Morning And An Evening

Your Wedding Is A Morning And An Evening
Your wedding is a morning and an evening:Just as the sun rises on your love,Halfway round the table it will setUpon the fields and faces you have known.So life turns, and so our fond rejoicingHas always the sweet pungency of time.We come and go within a tidal longingThat sweeps our hearts beyond what we can be.So beautiful a moment is forever!We are in awe, and know not what it means.Time parts around the rock of celebrationOn which we stand to wish you joy and love....

You Finally Found Each Other You Finally Found Each Other

You Finally Found Each Other
You finally found each other afterSearching hard for love.In this uncertain world you've comeTo one you're certain of.How can you know the someone whomYou'll cherish throughout life?What indices identifyA husband or a wife?Sometimes there's a gravity:Sudden, fierce, obsessed;As if you're falling towards some star,By its strong pull possessed.Or sometimes there's a childhood senseOf unselfconscious graceSustained within the safety zoneOf unprovoked embrace.Sometimes there's the terror ofThe searing pain of grief,As if the loss of love were death:Sheer scream without relief.Or there's a sense of lovelinessToo precious to be lost:A gift of all that makes life good,Beyond constraint or cost.Whatever signs you read,...

You Are The Mirror Of My Past You Are The Mirror Of My Past

You Are The Mirror Of My Past
You are the mirror of my past,The future of my dreams,The hope for what in life may last,The jewel that time redeems. You are yourself, of course, no less,But also you are mine,The light of all my treasured days,The gift for which I pine. Long may we this closeness share,This place where memories play,And if our friendship needs repair,May love reveal the way. And now that you're to be a wifeWith loves and passions new,May you find in your sweet lifeThe joy I have in you....

This Is The Second Marriage For Us Both This Is The Second Marriage For Us Both

This Is The Second Marriage For Us Both
This is a second marriage for us both,And yet we are the soul mates of our lives.Sometimes it's a while till love arrives,Though we may watch it sail along the coast.Sometimes we fail to understand that painCan be a journey to a sunlit shore.We never know what suffering is for,Or when we lose, what treasures we might gain.And so I'm grateful now that I am freeTo join my life with yours. I would not changeOne moment of my past, or rearrangeThe shining chain that brings your love to me.... Poems - Post by : twoelfling - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 1716

Love Can Be Like Lightning Love Can Be Like Lightning

Love Can Be Like Lightning
Love can be like lightning: all of a suddenElectric shock goes tingling to the toes.In some, however, it can come quite slowly,Spilling over sandbags as it grows. However love first shows itself, a marriageAlters all its labyrinthine ways:Seismic shifts deep down restructure mountains;Homes jiggle as some expectation sways. All you have and are is now together.Love shapes not just your feelings but your lives.Each must choose each day to love the other,Needing more than life what love decides....

I Wish My Grandmother Were Here With Us I Wish My Grandmother Were Here With Us

I Wish My Grandmother Were Here With Us
I wish my grandmother were here with usTo see and celebrate this happy day.I have her in the center of my heartJust like this special rose in my bouquet.Whoever catches this, please pass it onTo someone who is part of all you see,To someone who has sculpted you with love,Who means as much to you, as she to me....

From My Present Mountaintop From My Present Mountaintop

From My Present Mountaintop
From my present mountaintopI look back whence I came:An unexpected passage throughSome bleak and rough terrain. I look on what you did for me:The years of borrowed days,The sacrifice of libertyThat only love repays; The grace with which you gave yourselves,Though not without great cost,Not blaming me for fortune's giftNor counting what was lost. I feel a flood of gratitudeLike sunlight through my heart,A light that lights the candle ofThe life about to start....

Flowers Are A Sign Of Love And Beauty
Flowers are a sign of love and beauty.Life with love can be a field of graceOpen to those wise in joy and duty,Wild with passion, civilized as lace.Each blossom that is carried down the aisleReveals the life we've longed for all the while:Sweet-scented sunlight, lush as an embrace....

A Wedding Is A Party A Wedding Is A Party

A Wedding Is A Party
A wedding is a party with,Of course, a wedding cake.But sometimes by the time it comes,It's hard to stay awake.People need to talk a lot,And laugh and joke and kiss,And cry - why do they cry? - and mentionGod and love and bliss.Two people have decided thatThey'll share one house for life,And call themselves, instead of friends,A husband and a wife.And so we have to get dressed up,And eat a lot, and waitFor hours till they finally serveThe great big wedding cake....

Because Like Roots We Intertwine Because Like Roots We Intertwine

Because Like Roots We Intertwine
BEST MAN*Because like roots we intertwine,Planted in a single place,Your happiness is also mine,Deep as love's first blood-borne signIn that most intimate of space.Because like roots we intertwineAnd each for each the world design,Wrestling towards a common grace,Your happiness is also mineThough shared in ways we can't define,Too true to touch, too vast to trace.Because like roots we intertwine,Obliterating every lineThat might divide our long embrace,Your happiness is also mineAs you with nuptial vows combineThat love might weave its buried lace.Like roots, your lives will intertwine.Then let your happiness be mine!MAID OF HONORBecause like roots we intertwine,Living in a long embrace,Your...

As I Wait At The Head Of The Aisle As I Wait At The Head Of The Aisle

As I Wait At The Head Of The Aisle
As I wait at the head of the aisleOn Dad's arm, about to be wed,I remember the light of your smileIn the days when I still was a child,And you kissed me goodnight in my bed.And I think, as I wait by the aisle,Of an innocent world without guile,An Eden where goodness is bred:Lit by the light of your smile,A place where one tarries awhile,Sheltered from sorrow and dread.I wait by the head of the aisleWith a gift that no years can defile,A beauty no winter can shed.And I walk in the light of your smileTo a life that was mine...

Voices Of The Dead Are Rarely Heard Voices Of The Dead Are Rarely Heard

Voices Of The Dead Are Rarely Heard
Voices of the dead are rarely heard.Each of us should set aside the timeTo listen to their lost and anguished word,Empty of all sense save the sublime.Reason cannot reason to an end,A moment of its own annihilation.Nor can one love or witness comprehend'Ere death reveals their unconcealed relation.So let us long remember those who died,Doing honor due, for they were lovedAlive and dead by those whose hearts abide,Yet yearning though the mountains be unmoved....

Victories Are Never Victories Victories Are Never Victories

Victories Are Never Victories
Victories are never victories.Every battle waged is a defeat.The end contains the seeds of the repeat.Even heroes will take liberties.Remember this, then, when you go to war:Although the cause be just, the means is not.None can write in blood without a blotSeeping back beneath the bedroom door.Death cries for vengeance; destruction for destruction.A battle plan is always a reduction:You kill your foe yet murder so much more....

Very Soon I'll Hear The Victims' Screams Very Soon I'll Hear The Victims' Screams

Very Soon I'll Hear The Victims' Screams
Very soon I'll hear the victims' screams,Even in the midst of my content,The end not quite enough to quell the means,Each nightmare not exactly what I meant.Recruited in a time of peace, I wentAbroad to serve more adolescent dreams,Not unaware, of course, I might be sentSomeday to where the widow wails and keens.Dumb ignorance! For now I must repentAberrations no regret redeems,Yet hounding me like dogs on mayhem bent.... Poems - Post by : bzprod - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 1081

Vast Fields Of Crosses, All The Same Vast Fields Of Crosses, All The Same

Vast Fields Of Crosses, All The Same
Vast fields of crosses, all the same,Each embellished with a name.This is what your love had sought!Embrace the child become a thought,Reduced to regimented loss,A name screwed on a plain, white cross!Nor can you feel what you must feelSince what is real cannot be real.Devour the moment, make it yours,As life continues on all fours,Yearning, begging at closed doors....

Be My Valentine, My Love
Be my Valentine, my love,As I will be for you,And we will love the whole day long,And love our whole lives through.For love has no parametersAnd does not end with time,But is the gift of paradise,A pinch of the sublime.So let us take this holidayTo resubmit our loveTo those within that know no sinAnd with the angels move....
