A Wedding Poem

The Beauty of It

Time passing sings loudly

Measure not the journey

Nor the choices made

Rather unions formed,

Vows spoken freely,

Promises of everlasting love,

They are the hands elevating our spirit

To touch God

Can you see the beauty of it?

 

Their faces one with a higher power

As they join with the other

Two people peacefully united,

Delivering breaths of light

To a world seeking grace

There is such beauty in it

 

Holding our heads high

We donate our tears

As they vow to have-and-to-hold

We cry as we too have witnessed

God’s love bless our own union

Each clinging tear our gift to them

Knowing the light of the Holy Spirit

Shall be their arms on tired days

We have seen the beauty of it

 

Embracing on this joyous day

Blessed by God,

Witnessed by family and friends

Each one of us gives them

The singular power of faith

Knowing faith to be God’s timeless

sustainer of life and eternal joy

That is the beauty of it

 

A Poem for a Couple Getting Married: This poem was written as a wedding gift for a family member who is very dear to me. The title comes from the line in the movie, Bridges Over Madison County, where Meryl Streep says she wonders “if anyone could ever see the beauty of it” (not an exact quote). The line in the movie touched me deeply, and if I had the power to grant one blessing for a couple it would be that both experience deep love with each other for a lifetime. “This kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime”…so perfectly stated by Clint Eastwood’s character in the movie. What a beautiful wish for any couple.
