‘To my son and daughter-in-law’ by G. E. Jones
If I could I would take hold of the sun
I would ask it to shine on you both
If I could, then consider it done
Of this you have my oath
If I could I would speak to the stars
I would ask them to decorate the sky
I would talk to the moon and kindly ask
It to join their romantic plight
If I could I would ask of the snow
To be pure and crisp and white
And the footprints that show
To be yours alone, fresh, clean and bright
If I could I would ask for the rain
To gently fall and settle
To drizzle down the window pane
And rest upon the petals
If I could I would ask the rainbow
To find its end with you
To make you happy and to show
The pot of gold is you
‘An Uncommon Love’ by Terah Cox
May you have the love only two can know.
May you go where only two as one may go.
May the sun rise and set in your bonded hearts and the moon never find you too long apart.
May you cherish each other’s dreams as your own and turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
May you brave life’s mountains and miles together.
May there be no storm your love cannot weather.
May you be lovers and allies and friends.
May your soul’s conversation never end.
May you capture on earth what’s in heaven above.
May your hearts know the rapture of an uncommon love.
‘You are the mirror of my past,’ by Nicholas Gordon
You are the mirror of my past,
The future of my dreams,
The hope for what in life may last,
The jewel that time redeems.
You are yourself, of course, no less,
But also you are mine,
The light of all my treasured days,
The gift for which I pine.
Long may we this closeness share,
This place where memories play,
And if our friendship needs repair,
May love reveal the way.
And now that you’re to be a wife
With loves and passions new,
May you find in your sweet life
The joy I have in you.
‘Marriage Advice’ by Jane Wells
Let your love be stronger than your hate or anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break.
Believe the best rather than the worst.
People have a way of living up or down to your opinion of them.
Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship.
The person you choose to marry is deserving of the courtesies and kindness you bestow on your friends.
Please hand this down to your children and your children’s children.
‘On Your Wedding Day’ by Anonymous
Today is a day you will always remember
The greatest in anyone’s life
You’ll start off the day just two people in love
And end it as Husband and Wife
It’s a brand new beginning the start of a journey
With moments to cherish and treasure
And although there’ll be times when you both disagree
These will surely be outweighed by pleasure
You’ll have heard many words of advice in the past
When the secrets of marriage were spoken
But you know that the answers lie hidden inside
Where the bond of true love lies unbroken
So live happy forever as lovers and friends
It’s the dawn of a new life for you
As you stand there together with love in your eyes
From the moment you whisper ‘I do’
And with luck, all your hopes, and your dreams can be real
May success find its way to your hearts
Tomorrow can bring you the greatest of joys
But today is the day it all starts.
