Short Wedding Poems

Love Is More

E.E Cummings

Love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail

It is most mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea

Love is less always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less littler than forgive

It is more sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only
is higher than the sky.

Joy Is In The Simple Things

Nicholas Gordon

Joy is in the simple things: touching,
Embracing, chattering on for hours about nothing,
Sure of your place within another’s heart.
Simple things: like coming home knowing
Exactly where the treasure lies; like being
At ease with what you do and who you are;
Needing what you already have; accepting,
Desiring what you have been given; feeling
The gratitude of someone who is loved;
Investing goodness instead of money; giving
For the pleasure of giving pleasure; seeing
Fortune come to take you in its arms.
All this joy is yours for the price of loving,
Not only well but long, days of willing,
Years and years of wise and patient love.

I’ll Be There

Glenn Bagshaw

I’ll be there when nothing begins
for I planned this, my wedding day.
The cards fall, scattered- who then wins?
I’ll be there when nothing begins,
all unstrung since single Fate spins
dainty dress as pall on display.
I’ll be there when nothing begins
for I planned this, my wedding day.

I’ll be there when nothing begins
for I planned this, my wedding day.
Hope’s hung and loss by a neck wins.
I’ll be there when nothing begins,
all unstrung since single Fate spins
dainty dress for mournful display.
I’ll be there when nothing begins
for I planned this, my wedding day.

I Am Your Man

Tony Paniugua

For My Dear Wife,
On This Usual Day;
I Write You This Poem,
In My Own Special Way.

I Wanted To Tell You,
In Words Of My Own;
You’re The Most Precious Person,
That I’ve Ever Known.

You’re The Prettiest Girl,
Than Any I’ve Seen;
Your Body Is Flawless,
So Slender And Lean.

Your Eyes Have That Sparkle,
That I Can’t Live Without;
One Day Without Them,
And I’d Die There’s No Doubt.

And I Just Lose Control,
When I Glance At Your Hair;
Those Curls Are Just Stunning,
So Perfect And Rare.

You’re The Most Caring Person,
That I’ve Ever Met;
There’s No One Like You,
And That I Can Bet.

What Attracts Me The Most,
Is Your Sweet And Kind Touch;
You’re A Gift Sent From Heaven,
And I Love You So Much.

So Hold Me As Close,
As You Possibly Can;
‘Cause Now And Forever,
I Am Your Man.

That’s Wonderful Love

Ravi Sathasivam

How wonderful to win your heart with a smile
How wonderful to kiss your lips with hopeful
How wonderful to get your heart with love
How wonderful to see your soul in me
How wonderful to laugh with your sweet words
How wonderful to hold you tight and kiss gently
How wonderful to fly with you to the dream land
How wonderful to drive you through the mountain valleys
How wonderful to be with you within four walls
How wonderful to give you what you look for
How wonderful to hug you and keep you in my arms
How wonderful to wear our wedding rings on our wedding day
How wonderful to bind your love to last forever.

How do I love thee?

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old grief, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Hold My Hand and I’m Yours

Nicholas Gordon

Hold my hand and I’m yours,
And your heart will stay close to mine,
For I know the sun must rise with the dawn,
And at night the stars must shine.
And the wind must wander the ocean
And sing with the waves of the sea;
Just so, I know, I’ll be by your side,
And you will be wedded to me.

And you will be wedded to me, my love,
And I will be wedded to you;
For I know the tide must turn with the moon,
And the spring must return ever new.

And the sky must weep that the hillsides
May laugh in the green of their joy;
And the leaves must turn red, brown, and gold
That the earth might their riches employ.

And love like a mad, swollen hunger,
And love like an unending song,
And love like the silent pull of the Earth
Shall be with us all our lives long, my love,
Shall be with us all our lives long.

Faded Red Roses

David Harris

She stood at the alter
A gown of white she did wear
With a bouquet of red roses
And blue ribbons in her hair
She waited for someone
Who was never to come

Tears leaked from her eyes
Across her cheeks did run
The bouquet of red roses
For her wedding day
Have all now faded
As time slipped away

Those faded red roses
She still holds in her hand
Years have come and gone
Waiting for this man
You’ll still find her
With tears in her eyes

Doves Of Love

David Harris

The doves of love
fly each wedding day.
There are rainbows
there even on a rainy day.
Their eyes look at each other
as their vows they say.
Family and friends gather
on this special day,
to wish the couple,
all the happiness,
for their future together,
through each coming year.

Dance With Me Tonight

Kristi Day

I want to dance with you for a life time
Hold you close to my heart,
Stop the hands of time
Make the world give us a little more time

To feel our bodies close swaying together
To music that only we can hear,
Letting it sweep us into Heaven
Come, dance with me there

We’ll dance forever; never let go
Hearts in tune hand to hand,
Building love between us
That we barely can stand

Candles low no bright lights
Our love will light the way,
Come hold me close; dance with me
Til the night breaks to day

Feel our bodies pressed close
As close as skin to skin,
Open your heart to me baby
Come on, let me in
Fill my senses with your rush
Let me taste your deep kiss,
Hold me tightly to your heart

Never have I felt like this
Never will I feel it again
For within your arms I’ve died,
I’ve gone to heaven in your love
These are happy tears I’ve cried

Never have I been so loved
Or felt so much love for anyone,
Dance with me honey
Until the night is done

Dance with me until the world is done
I can’t resist your charms,
Dance with me and hold me close
Let me die within your arms

Don’t ever let me go
Dancing with you is so right,
I will never let you go
Come….dance with me tonight.

Breath Of Life

Paul Curtis

The most wonderful girl
To ever draw the breath of life
How honored I would be
If she agreed to be my wife
We will navigate together
Through adversity and strife
To be parted from her love
Would cut me like a knife
I will take my place beside her
And we will make ourselves a life

The most wonderful woman
To draw the breath of life
How honored I was that she
Agreed to be my wife
We did navigate together
Through adversity and strife
To be parted from her love
Would cut me like a knife
I took my place beside her
And we have made ourselves a life.

An Autumn Wedding

Ivan Donn Carswell

An Autumn wedding
in verity – but this is
indeed Spring’s ambiance
reflected in today’s
warmth and charity;

April showers cleanse
the air of yesterday’s
heat, but today we meet
here – where your real
beginnings began

we are gathered
for your matrimony
as friends forever
bound in the bonds
of your joining

this is a fusing
of your free spirits
engendered in
a transience of magic
and shared with joy

may this carnival
day and the colours
you wear remain

All My Happiness Goes Out To You

Nicholas Gordon

All my happiness goes out to you:
Pride and pleasure, joy, sweet tears, and love!
Reason, hope, and faith together move
In harmony to bless all that you do.
Let this beginning be the golden dawn
At which all dew-drenched nature sings its glory!
Nor should the darkness shrouding every story
Dim the blue-eyed beauty of this morn.
More of life will come than you can hold:
A flood no mortal witness can withstand.
Rest, then, within a quiet, gentle hand,
Knowing where love is as you grow old.
