The Best Is Yet To Be

On your joyful wedding day,
You begin a brand new life.
Friends and family give their gifts
To joyful husband, blissful wife.

But the greatest gift you'll ever get,
A gift from heaven above,
Is love forever, ending never,
Everlasting love.

You'll share life's joy and pleasure;
You'll have plenty of that, it's true.
But love is the real treasure
For your new spouse and you.

And if life hands you challenges,
As it does to one and all,
Your love will hold you steady
And never let you fall.

Your wedding day is full of joy;
Tomorrow you cannot see.
But one thing's sure for the two of you:
The best is yet to be.

Wedding Ceremony Vows

Some wedding poems can be used as wedding vows. Here is a free verse wedding vow for the bride that could also be used as a wedding poem.

Bride's Vow

My wonderful (groom’s name),
On our wedding day, I think of all the reasons
I am blessed to be your wife:

You are the joy of my life.
In you I found much more than I ever hoped,
more than I ever dreamed a man could be.
In your arms, I feel happy, safe, protected.
You’re my hero, my defender, my soul mate, my love.

I was born for you.
There was a space in my heart that you fill perfectly.
I fall in love with you again every time I see you.

We are alike, and yet we are different.
Our similarities bond us together,
and our differences keep things interesting.
And no matter what,
you let me be me, just as I am.
I am so grateful for that.

I want to keep discovering you.
I love so many things about you now,
and I know I will find many more to love.

The many little things you to do please me
touch me more than you know.
You see me with your heart,
and you always make me feel beautiful.

This is the beginning
of the rest of our lives together.
We have so much happiness ahead of us,
a lifetime of love,
a lifetime to create wonderful memories.
Nothing matters more than being with you.
I love you; I trust you; I am totally open to you.

Everything that’s woman in me responds to the man in you,
And as we become husband and wife,
I want you to know that there will never be
anyone else for me but you,
my husband, my love, my life.

Groom's Vow

My sweet (bride’s name)
On our wedding day, I think of all the reasons
I am blessed to be your husband:

You are the joy of my life.
You are everything I ever wanted in a woman.
My heart soars every time I see you.
Just the sound of your voice brings me pleasure.
I never get enough of you.

When I’m with you I feel happy, complete, confident, strong,
everything a man wants to feel.
You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.

I’m a better person when I’m around you.
You bring out good parts of me I didn’t even know I had.
You inspire me to be the best I can be.
I’m better for knowing you, better for loving you.

You’re so easy to love.
You brighten my life in so many ways.
When you’re not with me, I miss you.
It feels like we were meant for each other.
It means so much to me to have you by my side.

I can’t find words to say
how intense my feelings are for you.
You thrill me beyond description.
I didn’t know what happiness was till I met you.

You’re my serenity, my comforter,
a peaceful refuge from the outside world.
No one else knows me like you do.
I share things with you I’ve never shared before,
and you use the things you discover about me
to do things that make me happy.
I am so grateful for that.
I love you; I trust you; I am totally open to you.

Everything that’s man in me
responds to the woman in you
And as we become husband and wife,
There will never be anyone else for me,
My wife, my love, my life.

(Man's name), I’ve dreamed of the man I’d want to be with forever: strong, smart, kind, tender, romantic. You’re better than I dreamed. When I’m with you, my heart glows with pleasure, and I wonder how I could be so blessed. I was born for you. Let me be your friend, your playmate, your biggest fan. I offer you my heart, my mind, my life.

(Woman's name), I always knew the kind of woman I wanted: bright, attractive, fun-loving, affectionate. You’re all that and more. When we’re together, I’m happier than I’ve ever been before. You bring out the best in me. You’re so easy to love, and no one can love you like I do. Let me be your hero, your lover, your greatest admirer. I offer you myself, my love, my life.

Father Daughter Dance Song

This father daughter dance lyric I wrote is to the tune of the song When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, which I believe is in the public domain, but you should check for yourself before performing the song. The sheet music for this song should is easy to find on the Internet. Be careful, though, that the arrangement, that is, the harmony parts and accompaniment, are not copyrighted. If they are, you can seek permission to use the arrangement. Here's a bonus: This melody is written in waltz time, so if you want to do a waltz with father, you can. Or, if he doesn't dance, you can just sway back and forth.

Father Daughter Dance Song

My daddy was my hero
For my very youngest years;
Daddy kept me safe and happy,
And he chased away my fears.
I watched in awe and wonder
At each manly thing he did;
Oh, I looked up to my daddy,
When I was a little kid.

My dad was still my hero,
As the years passed, one by one.
He taught important lessons,
And he took some time for fun.
He was my firm foundation;
On my dad I did depend;
He was always there for me,
My dad, my guide, my friend.

My father is my hero,
Now that I am fully grown.
I love him and respect him,
The best man I've ever known.
I knew when I would marry
That my husband had to be
A great man, just like my father,
Dad, my hero you'll always be.

Wedding Vows Renewal

I am really surprised at the very large number of people who are looking to renew their wedding vows. Wedding vows renewal is a very hot topic, so I wrote the free verse poem for those many people who are interested in renewing their wedding vows.

Cross My Heart

I loved you before our wedding day,
I committed myself to you on that special, memorable day,
and now I want to reaffirm to you
all the love, admiration, devotion, respect and gratitude
I still feel for you.
I really know you, and I really love you.
We are two halves of the same soul,
happily bound together by a united, everlasting love.
My dreams came true when I met you.
Our wedding day opened for me
a magic door to the very best life has to offer.
You've been my shelter in stormy times,
my strength to meet life's challenges,
and an unending source of indescribable pleasure.
We had a great beginning, but the best is yet to come--
beautiful tomorrows filled with even more happiness.
I cross my heart (cross your heart) and promise you
that I will love you forever.
I have perfect faith in us,
and I'm looking forward to continuing
the joyous journey that we've been on together
for (number of years).
May there be many more.

Marriage Blessing

May your marriage always be blessed

whatever is needed, wanted, for happiness;
and deep commitment to do whatever it takes

Wedding Prayer or Wedding Blessing

Wedding wishes and wedding messages sometimes have a religious theme. This wedding poem is a wedding prayer. Sometimes it’s called a wedding blessing.

Wedding Prayer
Wedding Blessing

Dear Lord, please bless this man and this woman as they enter into a commitment to spend the rest of their lives together in harmony and happiness. We pray you will bathe them in bliss, the indescribable happiness that comes from finding one’s true soul mate and life partner. We pray you will guide them through life's exciting adventure and lead them to fall in love with each other again and again as time passes.

Not that they won’t ever disagree, Lord; they probably know that already. But we pray you will bless them with an all-encompassing, transcendent love that generates deep respect for each other. Bless them with a willingness, even eagerness to listen to each other, to put the other first, as it says in the Bible in Ephesians. Bless them with a desire to focus on each other’s good points to remember why they are together, and a wish to express affection and praise for each other often.

Dear Lord, please manifest yourself in their marriage. May Your peace that passes all understanding envelop all their joys and pleasures, challenges and fears. Give them confidence in Your constant presence in their lives, that you are always there to love them, lift them up, encourage them, strengthen them. Let this be a marriage where one plus one equals more than two, as You bring them closer to each other and to You, with their love maturing and becoming more satisfying with each passing year.

Bless them as they love each other, help each other, share in each other’s joys and comfort each other when life isn’t as they wish. May they always feel that You have given them more than enough and that their lives are filled to overflowing with Your blessings.

Dear Lord, we pray You will direct them and gently lead them on the path You would have them take, within Your plan and purpose for them, according to Your Holy will.

Dear Lord, bless this man and this woman with unity in their minds, oneness in their bodies, peace and joy in their souls. May they keep each other warm, content, satisfied and peaceful,
with You as their guiding light.

In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.
