Love is more than a feeling or an emotion
it is an amazing way of being
it is being yourself
sharing all you have to give
to feel no judgement or criticism
Love is being in a bubble
and floating so high
that you feel you are looking down on yourself
in ore of the moment.
To marry is to give yourself to another
to share all your wants and needs
to join with another to dream their dreams
and to feel their desires
To understand one another
like you never felt anyone could understand you
to feel happiness just by spending
a moment looking in their eyes
To feel a rush with just the touch
of their hand in yours
to love is so enlightening
but to be loved is the greatest gift.

Wow reading this poem takes me back, I remember falling in love with my husband. I can remember how it felt feeling, you know those little butterflies in your stomach when you thought of them. Love is such an intense emotion, I have always written more when I was down so when I find poems that I wrote about love and happiness I always make sure I take the time to bask in the feelings that they bring back to me. As the title points out, I wrote this for our wedding day. I am not religious so this was our reading, other people have a reading from well, from something to do with their faith but for us we wanted something that was personal to us, something that was us and about OUR love. We married in beautiful Queenstown New Zealand over six years ago but reading this poem makes me feel like it was just yesterday.
