One Love - Poem by Gwen Douglas

I see this woman who doth love one man
She is young and pretty according to plan
Then I see this man who has but one love
Given for her from the Great God above.

It was union made in heaven you would expect
The minister repeated it right in his text
The man said "I do " this is for life
When she said "I do" she became his wife

After many years of wedded bliss
Their love was as sweet as their first kiss
May your days have been many your trails few
Because my dear Mother this is Daddy and you
