Memories Of A Lifetime - Poem by Douglas Williams

Majestically standing before you today,
They are King and Queen of this mid-April day.
A union of their bodies, minds and spirits.
A bond so strong - nothing can tear it.

Each have lived a lifetime of memories.
Both good and bad.
But as they prevail through the worst,
They stand proud in their exultation.

She remembered the tradition,
Something borrowed, something blue.
A tradition that brings couples together,
That will join their love as true.

Each staring into the other's soul,
A power they have now since gained.
Knowing every word before they speak,
And each heartbeat is felt mentally.

When this ceremony is over,
Their lives will have just begun.
For Heather and Douglas,
from two became one.

And in years to come,
When they look through their picture book,
Memories will engulf them as they look.
In their future, present and past,
It's apparent that their love will last.

A lifetime of memories,
in just one day.
Yes - Many more are promised,
After today.
