Poems for Weddings



The key to love is understanding..
The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word
But those unspoken gestures
The little things that say so much by themselves.
The key to love is forgiveness..
To accept each others faults and pardon mistakes
Without forgetting, but with remembering
What you learn from them.
The key to love is sharing..
Facing your good fortunes as well as the bad, together
Both conquering problems, forever searching for ways
To intensify your happiness.
The key to love is giving..
Without thought of return
But with the hope of just a simple smile
And by giving in but never giving up.
The key to love is respect..
Realising that you are two separate people, with different ideas
That you don’t belong to each other
That you belong with each other, and share a mutual bond.
The key to love is inside us all..
It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients
That will take you to its threshold
It is the continual learning process that demands a lot of work..
But the rewards are more than worth the effort.
And that is the key to love.

Someone may love you because you are clever
Someone may love you because you are wise
Someone may love you for beauty or humour
The fun in your heart or the light in your eyes.
But if there is one who discovers your failings
And love all the good and bad that is you
This is the love that will last you forever
This is the love that will always be true.


Something to love and if you ain’t learned that
You ain’t learned nothing.

Lorraine Hansberry (1930-1965)


And the gentle heart
Are but a single thing.

Dante Alighein (1265-1321)


There is hearty truth
There is love.

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)


The best is yet to be
The last of life for which
The first was made.

Robert Browning (1812-1889)


This message is as special
As my feelings are for you
For I believe that you were born
To make my dreams come true.
My hopes, my fears, my aspirations
You embrace as you do your own
And as long as you are in my life
I’ll never feel alone.
Without you there is no purpose
No rhyme nor reason why
So I’m sending you my kisses
With love that’ll reach the sky.

I Love You


True love is a precious flame
That burns perpetually
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its density
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear.
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds
And true love holds with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines.


My heart has made its mind up
And I’m afraid it’s you
Whatever you’ve got lined up
My heart has made its mind up
And if you can’t be signed up
This year, next year will do.
My heart has made its mind up
And I’m afraid it’s you.

Wendy Cope


Love is just not looking at each other and saying ‘You’re wonderful’
There are times when we are anything but wonderful.
Love is looking out in the same direction, it is linking our strength to pull a common
load, it is pushing together towards the far horizons, hand in hand.
Love is knowing that when our strength falters, we can borrow the strength of someone
who cares. Love is a strange awareness that our sorrows will be shared and made lighter
by sharing; that joys will be enriched and multiplied by the joy of another.
Love is knowing someone else cares that we are not alone in life.

Walter Rinder
