Her Big Day
My daughter’s getting married,
My mind is in a whirl,
It doesn’t seem five minutes
Since she was a little girl.
She’s dressed in gleaming satin,
A dream of pearls and lace,
Transformed into a princess,
Flushed excitement on her face.
What happened to my baby,
The toddler, then the child,
That moody, awkward youngster,
My teenager, sweet and wild?
This elegant young woman,
(Can life still be the same?)
Her love’s gone to another,
And she’s changing home and name.
So grown up and so lovely,
I feel I’ve lost her now,
But must not be selfish,
I’ll accept, I’ll cope somehow.
But what’s this in the mirror?
I see she’s near to tears,
I’ll put my arm around her,
Why! She’s full of doubt and fears.
At last I’ve reassured her,
And smiling at each other,
I know my daughter will not change,
I’ll always be her mother.
Love is like gazing at the stars in the skies
But seeing these stars through your gentle eyes.
Love is the beauty of a heavenly place,
The same type of beauty I see on your face.
Love is the gentleness of a little child
Your same type gentleness so meek and mild.
Love is supporting you through doubts and fears
And soothing away all those painful tears.
Love is the unbearable ache in my heart,
When we’re not together and so far apart.
Love is taking your soft, gentle hand
And on it placing this gold wedding band.
Love is a token from heaven above
This ring is a token of my undying love.

Weeks and weeks to prepare
Running here and there
Arranging the church
Your vows to rehearse
Hoping your day will be bliss
Preparing the guest list - none amiss
Flowers, rings, the wedding cake
Present list for you to make
Wedding cars, ribbons to tie
Emotions ever running high
Finally the day is here
Time is drawing near
Meet your man, make your vow
Happiness at least for now
Two people joined together as one
Hankie-pinkie when guests have gone.
You say you love me
I know it's true
Without your love
What would I do?
My heart will sing
'you kiss my soul'
This is the thing
That makes us whole
Together we will face our life
You as my husband
Me your wife
Sharing, caring, journeying on
With only love notes
For our song.
You are the mother I received
The day I wed your son.
And I just want to thank you, Mum
For all the things you've done.
You've given me a gracious man
With whom I share my life.
You are his loving mother and
I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head,
And now I hold his hand.
You raised in love a little boy
And gave to me a man.
That Special Smile
The church is full of people,
And I see you standing there,
Waiting for the gift to come,
Who’s life you soon will share.
I try so hard to stop the tears
That I feel begin to flow,
As you stand there - your back to me,
I wonder if you know
How much I’ve really loved you,
Right from the very start,
The first time that I saw you
I’d given you my heart.
You always had a Special Smile
That I knew was just for me,
And you’d hug me oh so tight
For all the world to see.
Oh, I think of the many times,
(So easy to recall)
When you’d given me that smile,
And said you loved me best of all.
And now you’re getting married
To a girl you hardly know,
But you told me she was the one,
So I will let you go.
Now I think of all the happy times we shared,
Always side by side,
And if I use to get upset,
How you’d hug me when I cried.
Then later on when you went away,
(And I was on my own)
You wrote me a letter Every day,
And when you came back home
You brought me a bunch of flowers,
The biggest I had ever seen,
And you gave that Special Smile,
And said I’d always be your Queen.
Now this church is Full of flowers,
And your eyes are full of pride,
As you turn and look back down the aisle
to see your lovely bride.
She comes to stand beside you,
The church is quiet and still,
I hear you make your promises,
I hear you say “I Will.”
Now it seems I’ve really lost you,
And I fight the tears in vain,
All those years we had together,
We’ll never have them again.
And now the wedding’s over,
But, as you walk back down the aisle,
You stop by me and hug me,
And give me that Special Smile,
And all at once I’m happy,
And all my tears are gone,
Because Suddenly I realize,
You’ll Always be. . .MY SON.
The Colour of My Love
I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Knowing that we'll never part.
I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn, so much to try.
I'll paint my mood in a shadow blue,
Paint my soul to be with you.
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones,
Draw your mouth to my own.
I'll trace a hand to wipe your tears
And trace a look to calm your fears.
A silhouette of dark and light
To hold each other oh so tight.
I'll paint the stars in the evening sky,
Draw the light into your eyes,
A touch of love, a touch of grace,
To softly fall on your moonlit face.
And with this ring our lives will start,
Let nothing keep our love apart.
I'll take your hand to hold in mine,
And be together through all time.
In my future I see you and me,
And a house and garden filled with trees.
I see dinner parties surrounded by friends,
And a vegetable patch we love to tend.
I see cosy nights in front of the fire,
And a four-poster bed for when we tire.
I see our kitchen which will be the heart of the home,
And a Victorian bath brimming with foam.
I see muddy wellies by the front door,
And the kids eating cookies and asking for more.
I see nights in the garden camping under the stars,
And shelves full of mismatching local jam jars.
I see family picnics outside with the dog,
And a little blue shed containing the logs.
I see us sat by the window watching the snow,
And reading the papers and learning to grow.
I see pictures of family in quirky frames,
And letters on the kids' doors spelling out their names.
I see laughter, pain, kisses and tears,
And helping each other to confront our fears.
I see you as my friend and also my lover,
Your confidant and your children’s mother.
I see a wonderful future for you and I,
And it's cloaked in love until we die.

These I Can Promise
I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold;
I cannot promise you an easy pathway
That leads away from change or growing old.
But I can promise all my heart's devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;
A love that's ever true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.
Touch My Heart
If you stand beside me
Is it a dream, or reality?
Do I ask, 'Is it for a day or eternity?'
Could we dance in the snow
Or will we sit by the fire?
To look into my soul
And tell you how I burn inside.
So, touch my heart
For today and tomorrow.
I believe in what you say
And cannot see either doubt or shadow -
In your eyes nor in our way.

Yes, I’ll Marry You
Yes, I'll marry you, my dear,
And here's the reason why;
So I can push you out of bed
When the baby starts to cry,
And if we hear a knocking
And it's creepy and it's late,
I hand you the torch you see,
And you investigate.
Yes, I'll marry you, my dear,
You may not apprehend it,
But when the tumble-drier goes
It's you that has to mend it,
You have to face the neighbour
Should our labrador attack him,
And if a drunkard fondles me
It's you that has to whack him.
Yes, I'll marry you,
You're virile and you're lean,
My house is like a pigsty
You can help to keep it clean.
That sexy little dinner
Which you served by candlelight,
As I do chipolatas,
You can cook it every night!
It's you who has to work the drill
and put up curtain track,
And when I've got PMT it's you who gets the flak,
I do see great advantages,
But none of them for you,
And so before you see the light,
I do, I do, I do!
Unconditional Love of Marriage
Marriage is not just a day of celebrating
It’s a love forever you must share.
It’s a life of trials and tribulations,
Which together you both must bear.
If you want to give the joy of love
Then be sincere in what you say.
Loves not the offering empty words,
It’s the deeds that you do each day.
There’ll be times of disagreement
And feel your life has been torn apart,
But there is always consolation
By finding forgiveness in your heart.
Through lives long journey together
One may be burdened with tears and despair.
But walking a mile in their footsteps
Will show them you truly care.
It’s only through unselfish sacrifice,
Will your heart-strings be united together.
And when you both have reached this end,
You’ve found absolute love for ever.

Each morning when the clock strikes eight,
He sweeps aside hid breakfast plate.
Then from the gate I wave goodbye,
Turn back into the house and sigh.
Just look at all those dirty crocks!
And what about his filthy socks?
The sheets to iron, the beds to make,
The floors to clean, the cakes to bake.
I wonder as I grouse all day,
If other young brides feel this way?
Then evening comes, He’s at the door,
I rush across the kitchen floor.
He takes me in his strong embrace,
I feel his lips upon my face.
All day I’ve waited just for this,
His coming home . . . his tender kiss.
The lonely hours of this long day,
Now that he’s back, melt right away!
