Love Poem #1: This is for you
Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? So every Thursday, we'll bring you some of our favorite love poems that will leave you sighing and swooning! Even better, they also double as quotables if you choose to personalize your vows:
Today, we have a poem from award winning author, Neil Gaiman. He wrote it for his friends and read it at their wedding. This sounds like a spectacular choice for a reading that one of your friends can deliver. You can read more about him at http://neil-gaiman.tumblr.com.
This for you, for both of you,
a small poem of happiness
filled with small glories and little triumphs
a fragile, short cheerful song
filled with hope and all sorts of futures
Because at weddings we imagine the future
Because its all about what happened next?
all the work and negotiation and building and talk
that makes even the tiniest happily ever after
something to be proud of for a wee forever
This is a small thought for both of you
like a feather or a prayer,
a wish of trust and love and hope
and fine brave hearts and true.
Like a tower, or a house made all of bones and dreams
and tomorrows and tomorrows and tomorrows
