About the Poem

When asked to compose and recite a poem for an upcoming wedding for a loved one, I honestly did not know where to begin.

What eventually flowed, was this poem written from the bride and groom's perspective. It was penned to encompass appreciation for the past, confirmation of the present, and anticipation for the future.

Wedding Poem - Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow

Cherished are the memories that
Brought us to this day,
For yesterday, was just a dream ...
A wish to contemplate.

A fantasy where in my mind,
A fleeting glimpse I'd see ...
A vision of the true desires
I longed for endlessly.

And when I dreamed, I did not know
The love I'd feel today;
The height of my true feelings,
And the depths they would portray.

And if I had one wish today,
A simple wish t'would be ...
Is that the love we feel this moment,
Lasts eternally.

Reality has merged now
As you stand here by my side;
And as I join your hand in mine,
My heart does fill with pride.

For as I pledge my love to you,
I see in many ways,
Reflections of my love for you
Are mirrored in your gaze.

And by our presence here today,
And for the love we share,
I thank you for our yesterdays
That brought us to be here.

But more than this, I vow to you,
My wishes yet to come ...
Tomorrow's dreams and fantasies,
This day that we are one.

Tomorrow's an adventure
That we'll share together now;
Our future's intertwined forever,
Through this holy vow.

I promise to remember
In the future years and days,
The love I feel for you this moment ...
... Dreams fulfilled today.

For in the coming years as we
Move on, and reminisce,
Back to the day I stood with you
And promised with a kiss ...

That blessed are the days that
I have looked into your eyes,
And felt the warmth and love reflect,
The essence of our lives.

*****

Yesterday we dreamed of what might be;
Today we validate our love;
And tomorrow we will cherish the life we have shared as one.

I'm marrying my Fiancee next weekend and she is very keen to have a poem read at the reception. The poem reflects the feelings that I feel and I couldn't write them better than they are portrayed here. A recital seems much more common during a marriage ceremony or reception now.

I am getting married in a couple of months and we have decided to write our own vows and it took me four and a half months to finally figure out what I wanted to write to him and you have summed it all up in your poem. Your poem has everything that I wanted to say to him, it was a very touching poem and I think that you are very gifted, and you can go a long ways if you keep on writing poem like that.

Sometimes a hug or kiss can share a feeling, satisfying yes. But, a word well spoken can touch us deeply and last a lifetime, this poem I must say, does exactly that. What a wonderful poem.
