My Love For You

Korri and I are going to the wedding of a friend in a few weeks and she kindly asked if we would like to do a reading together. She said that she really didn’t have a preference what we read and left it up to us. We looked around and took a few suggestions and then Korri said, why don’t you just write something. At the end of the day I’m a sucker for writing about love and I think marriage is simply the best so I said I’d take a swing at it. Below is the poem that Korri and I will present at the wedding. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

My Love For You

They say there may be oceans
Underneath the ones we know
Swirling depths of secrecy
And beauty down below

And if they ever find them
Like the bold hearted are prone to do
I’ll call them friend as they comprehend
How deep my love for you

You are perfect
You are kind
You are beautiful
You are mine

They say there may be galaxies
Beyond what mortals believe
Where an angels dance is circumstance
To shapes we can’t conceive

And even if I stretch my mind
To bring that space in view
It couldn’t  tap the corners
Of how wide my love for you

You are perfect
You are kind
You are beautiful
You are mine

They say there is a language
That all people understand
A universal diction
That places relatability in our hands

And if I learned every single word
To speak the truest true
Those words won’t hold a candle to
How pure my love for you

You are perfect
You are kind
You are beautiful
You are mine

They say that we are hindered
By our bodies, minds, and time
That the temporary defeats the permanent
When the final bells do chime

But I know they’d rethink everything
And write hope that’s blessed and new
If they understood the intricacies
How limitless, how timeless, and how precious my love for you

You are perfect
You are kind
You are beautiful
You are mine
