Wedding Vow Renewal According to Dr Seuss!

So, you're going to renew your wedding vows are you? How about getting creative and say your vows to your loved one just the way Dr. Seuss would...


If Dr Seuss could these vows write

I think he'd say the time is right

For you and I to state anew

Just how we feel between us two

Just how we feel about our love

In front of God in heaven above

In front of you, in front of me

In front of anyone who sees

It's time you see for all to know

How much our love has come to grow

How much we've seen, how much we've done

How much the two have become one

How much our lives are intertwined

My life with yours and yours with mine

How much the days have become years

How many smiles, how many tears

I choose today to state again

To state how much you are my friend

That I love you with all my heart

From now until death do us part

That I will love you when we're rich

And when we're poor and in a ditch

And I will love you when you're fit

And when you're hurt or feeling sick

And I will love through good or bad

And I will love through glad or sad

And I will have and I will hold

And let the honest truth be told

I'll love you my entire life

I choose again to call you wife.

Thanks AAA, I was so close to actually saying these vows to my wife on a Mexican beach but I chose to write some more traditional, heartfelt ones instead. Appreciate the vote...

This is truly awesome! As someone who's always loved Dr. Suess, from girlhood and still today, I had to share this on Facebook. What a wonderful hub!

Hubwow and hubawesome my fellow Canadian and wonderful writer that you are - you really captured the essence of Dr. Seuss here - and I would definitely say you did a better job than me on my latest poetic parody of Dr. Seuss.

No doubt because we both live in Ontario we are aware of the January thaw right now - but we are getting rain today by the lake when it really should be snow at this time of year

Sending you warm wishes from lake erie time ontario canada 1:23pm
