Wedding Day Poem

For Two Cherished Grandchildren

It is an adventure

You are embarking on

Known and unknown routes

Of the Voyage Marriage

The seas will be calm

The roads smooth

The hills     the rivers

Easily passable

The skies clear     the sun


The moon a lantern

To light your night

The stars an invitation

To always gaze upwards


But if the skies

Should sometimes darken

Clouds obscure the sun

And you hear the rumble of


Feel lightening flash

Put your arms around

Each other

For if in truth

You caused the lightening

The thunder

Even rain     even wind

In their aftermath

Remember love     remember love

That lives     forever in your


And let the storms fade from

Your memory

They have no power

Over Love


Nothing in the Universe

Nothing in life

Has power

Over Love
