Wedding Song (A Love Poem)

Still Together
Still Together

A Wedding, A Commitment

With the rate of divorce around 50%, a marriage is never a sure thing. It is necessary to resolve philosophical and religious differences, develop a workable plan for finances, and decide who will discipline the children. Marriage is a blending of lifestyles and a melding of two different people. The couples that take their marriages seriously enough to work through the difficulties that are bound to develop as their relationships grow are truly remarkable.

This poem is meant to celebrate them.

Wedding Song (A Love Poem)

Back then, our love was new,
Unproven. Yet we vowed in front
Of many faces to love each other
Forever. Amid a fantasy of
Flowers and festive decoration,
Fairytale lights and artistic
Gifts for everyone from mothers
And friends to people we never met,
We stood and said "I do,"
But we couldn't be sure.
After all, the odds were against it.
Before I saw you that day, my heart
Rested in my stomach, but when
I looked in your eyes, it rose to heaven.
I was able to see you with love,
And marry you in faith.

Here we are, years later,
Still together,
Still in love.
No more stars in our eyes,
We really see each other.
We see the odd and the even.
We see the joy and the anger.
We know the struggle of going from
Being "y\You and I", to becoming
"We," where we will never be
Just "me" again. We know it wasn't
All a walk by the beach. We have been
Each other's anchor in world of pain.
We have been each other's angst on
The days when our glue just
Wouldn't stick. And we have been
Each other's sunlight when the
Darkness was overwhelming.

Our wedding song still plays
For us, and we're happy to still
Be together.


Still going strong.
Still going strong.
