Unveiling Love

Lovely lacey cloth, how pretty you are
Dangling from her back.
How delightfully happy she was
When her Father lifted you
Off of her smiling face.
Such happiness to be unveiled
Brought forth the bride for her Groom.
Love was shown for all to see
As they joined hand in hand.
A look of love and peaceful joy.
Among a crowd of family and friends
They testified of God above.
Each time you dance around
I see the joy she’s found.
Each step He holds her to dance,
You glisten with radiant delight.
Thank you for revealing to me
The love that waits with Him.
I have been blessed to witness.

The Vow

Placing a ring upon my finger,
you solemnly took a vow
to love me all the days and nights
like you love me now.

Well, Honey, let me tell you this.
I love you just as strong.
And as long as you want me,
the vow will never go wrong.

PS. My friend Dawn asked me to write a book of poetry just for her. (I have done this all my life for friends or anyone who asks.) This poem was on a topic she asked me to write because she was so excited about her engagement.
