I Will Be

     Well, Rachel’s (my daughter) and Gregg’s wedding is but a week away….Time has been fleeting, and summer, a blur of colors, now waning…Has given way to ‘Bridal White’ and the new pallet from which all colors, henceforth, shall splash upon the canvas of their lives…To form a perfect masterpiece!

The following was written as lyrics for a song and was composed long before this wedding was imagined. Still, I hope the sentiments involved here will carry forth with them forever.

 

I Will Be

 If you’ll be, my one and only,

I will be, your rock.

I will be, the pillar that you lean on,

if down the aisle, with me you’ll walk.

 

If you’ll be, my one true love dear,

I will be, forever, by your side.

I will be, your shelter, in the storm,

if you, will be my bride.

 

If you’ll be, my life’s companion,

I will be, your love for life.

I will be, the fire that keeps you warm,

if you, will be my wife.

 

Yes, I will be, your rock, your pillar.

I will be, your shelter, in the storm.

I will be, the fire that keeps you warm,

if you, will marry me.

 

If you’ll be, my one and only,

I will be, your rock.

I will be, the pillar that you lean on,

if down the aisle, with me you’ll walk.

 

Yes, I will be, your rock, your pillar.

I will be, your shelter in the storm.

I will be, the fire that keeps you warm,

if you, will marry me.

 If you, will only marry me.

  1. Beautiful sentiments indeed and such is to be cherished. Unfortunately these days we take bets on whether the divorce will come in the first, second or third year.
