Wedding Poems

Your happiness begins

With your wonderful wedding day.

You’ll share everything together;

Through it all, your love will stay.

Congratulations to you,

As you begin your happy life.

May all good things be yours,

New husband and new wife.

On your joyful wedding day,

You begin a brand new life.

Friends and family give their gifts

To joyful husband, joyful wife.

But the greatest gift you'll ever get,

A gift from heaven above,

Is love forever, ending never,

Everlasting love.

You'll share life's joy and pleasure;

You'll have plenty of that, it's true.

But love is the real treasure

For your new spouse and you.

And if life hands you challenges,

As it does to one and all,

Your love will hold you steady

And never let you fall.

Your wedding day is full of joy;

Tomorrow you cannot see.

But one thing's sure for the two of you:

The best is yet to be.

Your wedding day is just the start

Of a lifetime full of love and fun.

It just begins as you take your vows,

When the two of you are joined as one.

Congratulations on your marriage,

Have a wonderful life!

You are two terrific people,

Now teamed as man and wife.

A team with blessings like yours

Will live a life you'll cherish;

You’ll find happiness everywhere,

For your love will never perish.

Wedding Readings

This day I married my best friend

the one I laugh with as we share life's wonderous zest,

as we find new enjoyments and experience all that's best.

The one I live for because the world seems brighter

as our happy times are better and our burdens feel much lighter.

The one I love with every fiber of my soul,

We used to feel vaguely incomplete, now together we are whole.

From the "Song of Solomon", The Bible

Behold my beloved speaketh to me: Arise, make haste, my love, my dove, my beautiful one, and come. For winter is now past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers have appeared in our land, the time of pruning is come: the voice of the turtle is heard in our land: The fig tree hath put forth her green figs: the vines in flower yield their sweet smell. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come

Roads go ever ever on,

Over rock and under tree,

By caves where never sun has shone,

By streams that never find the sea;

Over snow by winter sown,

And through the merry flowers of June,

Over grass and over stone,

And under mountains in the moon.

Roads go ever ever on

Under cloud and under star,

Yet feet that wandering have gone

Turn at last to home afar.

Eyes that fire and sword have seen

And horror in the halls of stone

Look at last on meadows green

And trees and hills they long have known.

What greater thing is there for two human souls

than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen

each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,

to share with each other in all gladness,

to be one with each other in the

silent unspoken memories?

If ever two were one, then surely we.

If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.

If ever wife was happy in a man,

Compare with me, ye women, if you can.

I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold,

Or all the riches that the East doth hold.

My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,

Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.

Thy love is such I can in no way repay;

The heavens reward thee manifold I pray.

Then while we live, in love lets so persever,

That when we live no more, we may live ever.

THE PRAYER ~ By St. Francis of Assisi ~

Lord, make

us instruments of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let us sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is discord, union;

Where there is doubt, faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

Where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, Grant that we may not so much seek

To be consoled as to console,

To be understood as to understand,

To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Two doves meeting in the sky

Two loves hand in hand eye to eye

Two parts of a loving whole

Two hearts and a single soul

Two stars shining big and bright

Two fires bringing warmth and light

Two songs played in perfect tune

Two flowers growing into bloom

Two Doves gliding in the air

Two loves free without a care

Two parts of a loving whole

Two hearts and a single soul

Love lives beyond

The tomb, the earth, which fades like dew.

I love the fond,

The faithful, and the true

Love lives in sleep,

The happiness of healthy dreams

Eve's dews may weep,

But love delightful seems.

'Tis heard in Spring

When light and sunbeams, warm and kind,

On angels' wing

Bring love and music to the mind.

And where is voice,

So young, so beautiful and sweet

As nature's choice,

Where Spring and lovers meet?

Love lives beyond

The tomb, the earth, the flowers, and dew.

I love the fond,

The faithful, young and true.

Wedding Anniversary Poems

Love brought you together as husband and wife,

And gave each of you a best friend for life.

Happy Anniversary

Remember how it all began,

it started out as one little date,

who knew this young pair,

would become each others mate.

This day, it means so much to me,

For it's our anniversary,

And I want you to truly know,

That my heart simply is aglow.

You make each year so wonderful,

Each day, you grow more beautiful,

You fill my heart with love and cheer,

And I do love you so, my dear.

So happy anniversary,

And thank you so for choosing me,

It will be fun to celebrate,

So let's dress up and have a date!

We face each problem as it comes

And battle till it's through

Enjoy the calm that follows

Then wait for something new

You've always been supportive

My strength when I've been low

You've done much more than other

And for that I love you so

I know that with you by my side

I can take what life deals out

I love you more than you could know

Of that there is no doubt

So Happy Anniversary Babe!

I'll love you for Forever

And look forward to the future

And 'Growing Old Together'

Catholic Wedding Readings

What will separate us from the love of Christ?

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans 8:31b-35, 37-39

Brothers and sisters:

If God is for us, who can be against us?

He did not spare his own Son

but handed him over for us all,

how will he not also give us everything else along with him?

Who will bring a charge against God’s chosen ones?

It is God who acquits us.

Who will condemn?

It is Christ Jesus who died, rather, was raised,

who also is at the right hand of God,

who indeed intercedes for us.

What will separate us from the love of Christ?

Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine,

or nakedness, or peril, or the sword?

No, in all these things, we conquer overwhelmingly

through him who loved us.

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,

nor angels, nor principalities,

nor present things, nor future things,

nor powers, nor height, nor depth,

nor any other creature will be able to separate us

from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew 5:1-12a

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain,

and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.

He began to teach them, saying:

Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,

for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,

for they will inherit the land.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they will be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,

for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the clean of heart,

for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,

for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you

and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.

Rejoice and be glad,

for your reward will be great in heaven.”
