Some People Seem Just Made For Early Marriage Some People Seem Just Made For Early Marriage

Some People Seem Just Made For Early Marriage
Some people seem just made for early marriage:Like a fertile field they know their fate.Life comes calling for them in a carriageAnd takes them to the ornamental gate.There they find their pleasure, rich with love,A place they prune and water till it glows,And there they dwell till death and never move,At least that seems the way it often goes.Actually, such love is dear and rare;Not many can sustain it for so long.The two of you, however, seem to bearThe marks of joy that to those few belong.Cross over, then, into that chosen placeWhere love rules all, and all is full of...

Sing Of The Home That You Have Never Seen Sing Of The Home That You Have Never Seen

Sing Of The Home That You Have Never Seen
Sing of the home that you have never seen,The place your ancestors once called their own!Play the music of that island green,And dance the dances dear to those long gone!Time again to fill their dancing shoes,Reawakening the ghosts within,In touch with some incendiary muse,Channeling the beauty that had been.Knowledge is not merely of the mind:'Tis of the arms and legs, the throat, the heart.Sing, that you not lose your soul to time!Dance, that you might nurture it through art!As all your passions quickly become past,Yet you may give life to things that last....

Sing In Celebration Of Your Race Sing In Celebration Of Your Race

Sing In Celebration Of Your Race
Sing in celebration of your race,The anonymous composer of your song,Passionate provider of your grace,A host to which you cannot help belong.Take a day to sing of who you are,Rejoicing in the choice of what must be,In gratitude for what, beyond the bar,Chooses in dark joy one's history.Know the lineaments of ancient lore'Ere you feel and act, and know not why.Stories long forgotten lie in store,Destined for revision by and by.All you are and do is not by chance,Yet you may face your partners as you dance....

Recently You Were Just Two Feet High Recently You Were Just Two Feet High

Recently You Were Just Two Feet High
Recently you were just two feet high,Reaching out with pudgy little arms,Going for the bright blue, brand new sky,Intoxicated with life's purest charms.Once again you enter a world new,Tingling with the innocence of joy;Once again the sky's a brilliant blue,Not far beyond the reach of girl or boy.Do not forget that burning, helpless passion.Child or adult, it lies within.Although you may get lost in work and fashion,Returning home lets you begin again.In you today there is the purest love.Swift though the years, that time shall not remove....

On Your Wedding Day, As You Trade Vows On Your Wedding Day, As You Trade Vows

On Your Wedding Day, As You Trade Vows
On your wedding day, as you trade vows,No ordinary moment hurries by.You partake, as far as time allows,Of something more than time and Earth and sky:Unknowable, invisible, yet there;Resplendent to the heart if not the face;More than both of you, yet less than air;A transcendental act conferring grace.Reason might say, How can this be true?Return then to the heart, for this is love.In making vows, you make one out of two,A mystery beyond what words can prove.Go then as one flesh, one home, one heart:Each still a whole, yet also now a part....

On The Brink Of Married Life You Wait With Wonder On The Brink Of Married Life You Wait With Wonder

On The Brink Of Married Life You Wait With Wonder
On the brink of married life you wait with wonder: The coming moment, mystic and mundane,Brings law and love incongruously togetherTo form a bond both passionate and sane.For now it has to be about the party:Guests must be fed, clothes bought, proceedings planned;But underneath there is abiding beauty,Redeeming what the decencies demand.Praised be the pillars on which we place our lives,Standing more secure than else we might;And praised be those in whom such sense survives,Whose love becomes for all a source of light.So do we celebrate, as the moment nears,A love that counts its happiness in years....

I Never Thought I Ever Would Get Married I Never Thought I Ever Would Get Married

I Never Thought I Ever Would Get Married
I never thought I ever would get married.I wanted no restraint upon my will.But like the wind I wanted to be carriedWherever wish might take me, yearning still.And then I fell in love with you, and foundA rock upon which I might build a home,A place both to and for which I was bound,So bountiful I had no need to roam.Freedom cannot be except by choosing,And choice, if choice it be, of need constrains.And joy, once had, becomes, for fear of losing,A horse one rides with firm grip on the reins.Thus my choice to love you as your wifeIs freely made,...

I Am The Happiest I've Ever Been I Am The Happiest I've Ever Been

I Am The Happiest I've Ever Been
I am the happiest I've ever been.My loneliness will be forever gone.When you're away, my empty feelings spin,But after this, I'll always be at home.You're the only person in the worldFrom whom I cannot stand to be apart.But now in your devotion I'll be curled,Just as you'll take shelter in my heart.And so we two create a separate thingIn which we dwell mystically as one.Neither you nor I will solo singOnce this strange new harmony's begun.How sweet to join with you in this new life,Not only as myself, but as your wife....

How Necessary Is It To 
remind
How necessary is it to remindA loving couple that they are in love?Perhaps a well-placed word might pierce the rind,Penetrating hearts that dormant prove.Years accumulate like fallen snow,Vast fields of understanding, thick and cold,As time surrenders even those who know,Leaving love a story long since told.Each year, therefore, occasion must be made,Name-day of...

How Little In Me Is Not Touched By You How Little In Me Is Not Touched By You

How Little In Me Is Not Touched By You
How little in me is not touched by you!A friendship is a light that fills the heart,Painting with its gold each darkened hue,Providing warmth to each sequestered part.You are the mirror of my better self,Verifier of the best in me,A bridge across the unsuspected gulfLodged between what can and ought to be.Expectations can be wings, not bars,Necessary to sustain our flight.The faith of friends in us is wholly ours,Incoming to uplift us to its height.No soul can see itself, but must depend,Each on each, upon a trusted friend....

Childhood Sweethearts Share An Innocence Childhood Sweethearts Share An Innocence

Childhood Sweethearts Share An Innocence
Childhood sweethearts share an innocenceThat, if they marry, lasts them all their lives,An early sacrifice that makes no sense,Save that something beautiful survives.There is the sense that angels would do this,A rightness like a rock before the sea,A hunger for a symbiotic kiss,For love as pure as it was meant to be.And so it is for those who make that choice,Who dare to love so faithfully and longThat each becomes to each a second voice,Transforming merest moments into song.How beautiful first love! Yet better still,A love for life sustained by wish and will.... Poems - Post by : vicvoo - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 1920

Be With Us In The Circle Of Our Love Be With Us In The Circle Of Our Love

Be With Us In The Circle Of Our Love
Be with us in the circle of our love,Even if by chance you are alone.Our greetings we have hope your heart will move,Uniting our good wishes with your own.Remember there are those who think of you,Vested in the will to be a friend.As distant hills give depth to what we view,Let these words some grace to your day lend.Each life is lived behind a sheltering veil,Not lifted but for love. Yet when we will,There is a wind that shifts the rampart frail,Invading with sweet scent the spirit still.Now may we all enjoy this fragrance fine,Each each other's secret Valentine....

A Marriage Celebrates A New Beginning A Marriage Celebrates A New Beginning

A Marriage Celebrates A New Beginning
A marriage celebrates a new beginning:A couple starting out as man and wife.A shower celebrates a happy ending:The last days of a woman's single life.The wide world now has narrowed to a gardenIn which I will my pleasures plant and reap.The outlines of my character will hardenAccording to the promises I keep.My joy will soon become a melodyIn counterpoint to those for whom I care,Seeking a profounder harmonyThan any I alone could know or bear.So shall I find a greater grace within.One life is over: Let the new begin!Note: Change "I" to "you" and "my" to "your" to address this poem...

I wish you were my ValentineThough I may not be yours,And I may, in my ignorance,Be speaking to closed doors.

This Valentine's I Wish That 
you Were With Me
This Valentine's I wish that you were with me.It's lonelier than most days I'm alone,Even though we'll manage on the phoneTo touch with words the face we cannot see.You away are far more dear to meThan anyone who might remain at home.My love is in the places that you roam,Being with you where I cannot be.We do not choose the objects of our passion,But passively...

My Tears Are Not Of Loss My Tears Are Not Of Loss

My Tears Are Not Of Loss
My tears are not of lossBut of time too quickly gone.I miss our days togetherEven while they're going on.I savor odd, sweet momentsWhen you laugh or when you smile,Nostalgic for your presenceThough you're with me all the while.Strange how fantasyCan wander in and out at will,Looking back from somewhereThat is just beyond a hill.And so when once you leaveYou will not leave me alone,For I will have you with meLong, long after you are home....
