This Wonderful Day

My wife and I were married at Gracelands in Memphis, a wonderful experience. I wrote this poem to hang alongside our Tennessee marriage licence, to remind me of the most momentous day in my life.

AS WE STAND TOGETHER ON THIS WONDERFUL DAY

THE FEARS OF MY PAST SEEM SO FAR AWAY

FROM THIS DAY ON THERE WILL ONLY BE

MY LOVE FOR YOU AND YOURS FOR ME

A LIFETIME SO FULL OF JOY AND OF LOVE

GUIDED BY THE HAND OF THE ONE ABOVE

A LIFETIME FILLED WITH HAPPY TOMORROWS

LOTS OF JOY AND OCCASIONAL SORROWS

BUT THROUGH THOSE FEW SORROWS  THERE WILL ALWAYS BE

SOMEONE TO CHEER YOU AND THAT SOMEONE IS ME.
