Two Special People In Love


A Wedding To Remember

Look up in the sky

There are so many clouds

A hurricane is on its way

Not today

We have a wonderful wedding to watch

It is something really special

When strangers become friends

Friends become neighbors

Don and Alisha are a great match

A little after four in the evening

Hoping the rain would not come early

The sun was strong and bright

The bride came out of the house

Looking absolutely stunning

As her husband patiently waits

He looked so sharp

Both ready to take their vows

I look around and see so many smiling faces

As family and friends gathered round

The next thing I remember

You can kiss the bride

Off to take pictures

Then on to the dance floor

For their first dance

It didn't take long

For everyone to unwind

The shining sun finally went in

Pictures and more pictures

Behind us I can see two beautiful ponds with lots of flowers

Where the waterfall quietly flows

Everyone was delighted

As the music played

A tower of chocolates are displayed

A great time has no plans to stop

Even though my wife and I had to go

The farther we walked away

We could hear the sound of laughter get louder

I think they are going to party late into the night

May happiness always fill their hearts and souls

They each have found beauty in each other

That creates a love that will last forever

Maryam Fatima It is so nice to write something that makes people happy. If that happiness could spread all over the world then that would be incredible. I think small amounts of joy are contagious and with some help, we can all keep the love flowing. Wishing you a wonderful and safe day. Thank you for all your comments. 10 days and I finally found time to comment.

BRENDA ARLEDGE I am happy you enjoyed reading my version of a beautiful wedding and a love that transcends life and all that we know. When I go to a wedding I instantly forget all the hardships and troubles in life. All I see is a beautiful bride and a proud and handsome groom ready to live their life. Seeing happiness at its finest points. I think if more people went to weddings there would less divorce. It would be good therapy for every marriage. Think of the money and time it would save. Now that is a really good idea. Maybe someday someone will go with it. There is a series called Married at First Sight. I think you might like it. My wife and I had some laughs. How could you? Why didn't you? Where some of the many thoughts we came across. Thank you for reading and sharing. May we all find the love that we deserve. Life is short and it is so nice to share it with someone who gets us. Who really understands who we are on our good and especially our bad days. There is so much to say and hopefully, some of the high points brought about a love that sparkles in the darkness. Thank you for all your comments. Have a great day.10 days and counting. Where does the time go? One day it is early in the morning and we have so much to do. Then the next day we are lucky to go to work and come home and get some sleep.

John Hansen There is so much that happens on your wedding day. I found my wedding so busy and so happy we had it before the pandemic times.I just hit twenty years married. It was stressful and hard enough without Covid 19. Now when we thought the pandemic was finally over there are variants that look like they are going to bother us forever. I do remember how hard it was to pick people to come and we didn't have the budget or the space to invite everyone we wanted. I never could have imagined not having most of my family and friends see my wife and me on the happiest day of my life. I once again am very blessed my wife did so much planning and worrying. I just had to show up. We paid for our own wedding because my wife's family couldn't afford it. Looking back it was beautiful and fun. Scary and somethings unexpected. I can only wish your son's wedding in October a beautiful time. A love that will survive all the tests over time. A bond is so great that Covid will not ever break the marriage but make it stronger and more precious. You will have to tell all. Congratulations to both you and your family and her family as well. I can't think of a more wonderful thing in life than starting out with your own family. I can't wait to show our neighbors. How quickly one day flows into the next. I think it is also so important to go to weddings as guests and secretly I see and hear reminders of why I got married in the first place. For love and can't wait to spread the joy. Thank you for being patient. Life has a funny way of slipping through my fingers. I am glad I don't play baseball for a living. I would have a very short career.10 days past a lifetime to go. Happy a beautiful day and night. Your comments push me further and give me a lovely pick me up.

Good read.

Great poem

It brought back a few memories of a wedding I attended when I was a young gal...that chocolate fountain.

It's great to experience thus time when couples begin their lives together

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on August 21, 2021:

Dream On, this is a fitting tribute for your friends for their wedding. I hope Don and Alisha get to read this. I am sure they would be touched. thank you for sharing.

Our son is getting married in October. It has already been postponed twice due to COVID restrictions. Hopefully this time it goes through.
