For my wife


No wonder why we're getting married
I also chose a poem
It is about a hundred years old
And what it does capture is the essence of how I felt the first time I saw you
And never was I strike about an hour
With love so sudden and so sweet
Her face blossomed like a flower
And stole my heart away complete
Are flowers winters choice?
Is love bed always snow?
She always seemed to hear my silent voice and let loves appeal to know
I never saw so sweet face before it stood
Left its dwelling place, can return no more
That sums it up
I fell in love with you the moment I first laid eyes on you
From that moment on till now
Well I think it is fair to say a lot of water has gone under the bridge
We experienced a lot of sadness
A lot of pain
But somehow through it all our love was strong enough to endure
Everything we've been through
My love for you has never changed
And I know it will never will
So that brings us up to today
I can stand in front of my family and friends
I can promise you that I'm going to love until I die
I'm going to be a good husband to you
I'm going to honor you
I'm going to protect you
I'm going to care for you
I'm going to make your cares my cares
I'm going to make your triumphs my triumphs
And I'm going to grow old with you
Love and joy in all the greatest stuff life has to offer
Until death parts us

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
