Stuck for Words?

Nowadays, marriage vows are more personal and intimate, reflecting the personalities of the couple. And nothing expresses thoughts and feelings more than words, although some of us find it difficult to put these together. That`s why some couples will even go to the length of commissioning a unique piece of poetry or prose to convey their deepest feelings for one another.

However, you don`t have to go that far, as there are already so many beautiful pieces of writing from the past and present to choose from. Some are profound and soul-searching, others so deeply moving they make us weep. There are even those that make us laugh!

I Will Be Here
Steven Curtis Chapman

If in the morning when you wake,
If the sun does not appear,
I will be here.
If, in the dark, we lose sight of love,
Hold my hand and have no fear,
I will be here.
I will be here,
When you feel like being quiet,
When you need to speak your mind I will listen.
Through the winning, losing, and trying we’ll be together,
And I will be here.
If in the morning when you wake,
If the future is unclear,
I will be here.
As sure as seasons were made for change,
Our lifetimes were made for years,
I will be here.
I will be here,
And you can cry on my shoulder,
When the mirror tells us we’re older.
I will hold you, to watch you grow in beauty,
And tell you all the things you are to me.
We’ll be together and I will be here.
I will be true to the promises I’ve made,
To you and to the one who gave you to me.
I will be here.

I Wanna Be Yours
by John Cooper Clark

let me be your vacuum cleaner
breathing in your dust
let me be your ford cortina
I will never rust
if you like your coffee hot
let me be your coffee pot
you call the shots
I wanna be yours
let me be your raincoat
for those frequent rainy days
let me be your dreamboat
when you wanna sail away
let me be your teddy bear
take me with you anywhere
I dont care
I wanna be yours
let me be your electric meter
I will not run out
let me be the electric heater
you get cold without
let me be your setting lotion
hold your hair with deep devotion
deep as the deep Atlantic ocean
that’s how deep is my emotion
deep deep deep deep deep deep
I dont wanna be hers
I wanna be yours
