Summary: Though you might like to see the final version. Wedding went superbly well. Groom filmed his own speech so he missed nothing out and was able to enjoy his own day without worrying about his speech.

You are One

When light departs a sharing day
kind shadows fall
fears to allay
for you are one

When light returns in dawn’s new ray
hope re-awakes
of sharing joy today
as you are one

Giving is easy, taking hard
but love transcends
self’s wary guard
so they are one

When pain and sadness hide the sun
hold fast, hold true
face what comes
stronger as one

Freely yoked, not tied or bound
by choice you walk
to love’s common sound
when you are one

Love incurs no debt, no demands
from each to each
as need commands
because you’re one

Love is not will, nor just embrace
it is a gift
it is a grace
That you are one

Each other’s dreams your love shall share
a bond so rare
beyond compare
of two at one

When this life ends as end it must
together still
in love and trust
you shall still be one

Hi Zettel - It's good you shared this with us, and reported back afterwards too. I wish more young couples could have something as memorable as this given on their wedding day. Did you read it, or speak it from memory?

I think I mentioned when you first posted this, that I can recall hearing some awful stuff at weddings and funerals, penned by people who thought they could write a poem. If only the guests could more often hear a poem that leaves them feeling something worthwhile has been well expressed. I'm sure they did on this occasion.

Thanks James. I read it. But the brevity of the stanza's made it possible to say it direct to the couple with only reversion back to the text in between. I'm not sure I'd ever trust reading from memory.

Thanks so much for the kind remarks. You and the group were my test: I wasn't sure if it worked so it was immensely encouraging to get positive feedback to bolster confidence.

Thanks again all.
