The One- a poem

When the one whose hand you’re holding
Is the one one who holds your heart
When the one whose eyes you gaze into
Gives your hopes and dreams their start,
When the one you think of first and last
Is the one who holds you tight,
And the things you plan together
Make the whole world seem just right,
When the one whom you believe in
puts their faith and trust in you,
You’ve found the one and only love
You’ll share your whole life through.

We hope you have enjoyed this lovely poem. We have been unable to find the author.

Reprise- Ogden Nash

I cannot say any more than this made my heart smile this morning. Thanks you,  Ogden Nash. Enjoy the journey of your day.

                  ~Reprise~
Geniuses of Countless Nations
Have told their love for generations
Till all their memorable phrases
Are common as goldenrod or daisies.
Their girls have glimmered like the moon,
Or shimmered like a summer moon,
Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,
Now the sunset, now the dawn,
Here the princess in the tower
There the sweet forbidden flower.
Darling, when I look at you
Every aged phrase is new,
And there are moments when it seems
I’ve married one of Shakespeare’s dreams

I (can’t) Promise You- Bahl

On a beautiful Friday evening in Bristol, Rhode Island, Aly and Brandon celebrated their wedding. This warm and sensitive couple modified a poem ascribed to Bhal with the first line being I can’t promise you. In their program, Aly and Brandon simply identified the piece as: I Promise You

I can’t promise you
that dark clouds
will never hover
over our lives
or that the future
will bring us many rainbows.
I can’t promise you
that tomorrow
will be perfect
or that life will be easy.
I can promise you
my everlasting devotion,
my loyalty,
my respect,
and my unconditional
love for a lifetime.
I can promise that
I’ll always
be there for you,
to listen
and to hold your hand,
and I’ll always do
my best to make you happy,
and make you feel loved.
I can promise that
I’ll see you through
any crisis,
and hope with you,
dream with you,
build with you,
and always cheer you on
and encourage you.
I can promise that
I’ll share my dreams my world,
and every aspect
of my life with you.
I’ll willingly be
your protector,
your advisor,
your counselor,
your friend,
your family,
your everything.
And I believe that’s
what love is truly all about.

We hope this poem has been helpful to you on your journey and you have enjoyed your visit.

We are Still Here, a poem

Our blog, Only The Ceremony, has been, up to now, focused on the content of wedding ceremonies, mostly readings and poems. However, with this entry, we plan to introduce poems and prayers we have found helpful for families experiencing the loss of a loved one.

This first poem is dedicated to Rose and Michael who were married 61 years. Rose died Saturday; Michael, died Thursday, more than likely of a broken heart. Both in their 80’s, both with poor health, both deeply connected. The following poem is modified from singular to plural as if Rose and Michael were speaking to their adult children and grand children. We became aware of this poem by Shane’s family; a young man who tragically died the same weekend of an overdose. We remember in a special way the three of them and their families.

We are Still Here
(A modification of: I’m Still Here, Author: Unknown)
Children, please don’t mourn for us
We are still here, though you do not see us.
We are right by your side each night and day
and within your heart we long to stay.

 

Our bodies are gone but we are always near.
We are everything you feel, see or hear.
Our spirits are free, but we will never depart
as long as you keep us alive in your heart.

 

We will never wander out of your sight-
We are the brightest stars on a summer night.
We are never be beyond your reach-
We are the warm moist sand when you’re at the beach.

 

We are the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
We are the beautiful flowers, of which you are so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

 

We are the first bright blossom you’ll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
We are the first rays of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you will see our face in the moon lights glow.

 

When you start thinking there’s no one to love you,
you can talk to us through the Lord above you.
We will whisper our answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you will feel our presence in the soft summer breeze.

 

We are the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
We are the smile you see on a baby’s face.
Just look for us, we are everyplace!
