Love Poem for a Wedding Day
If ever there was a dream come true,
it would be me and you.
sharing love so tenderly,
both our hearts at last set free.
soaring like a bird in the sky,
knowing our love will never die.
the two of us sharing one heart,
a joy that has filled us from the start.
I hold you in my arms and I start to quiver,
overwhelmed by your eyes, I start to shiver.
take my hand, as we walk through our days,
stand by me always, come what may.
Iíll be your strength, and youíll be mine,
side by side throughout all time.
if ever there was a dream come true,
it is us; me and you.
"The Magic of Love"
Love is like magic, and it always will be,
For love still remains life's sweet mystery.
Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange,
And there's nothing in life that love cannot change!
Love can transform the most commonplace
Into beauty and splendor and sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish, understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart, and not with its mind.
Love is the answer that everyone seeks;
Love is the language that every heart speaks.
Love can't be bought, it is priceless and free.
Love, like pure magic, is life's sweet mystery!

How Do I Love Thee
How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old grief, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
