PLEASE USE THIS LOVE POETRY / WEDDING POETRY:
This poem has been used in many wedding ceremonies, in many different countries.

I am pleased for it to be used in this way, as long as I am acknowledged as its author and it is not used in any commercial way. 

 

Wedding Vows (Love Poetry -Wedding Poetry) Phoetry - Visual Poetry - Love Poetry - Poetry

May we forever be lovers,
May we forever be friends,
And should we hurt each other,
May we quickly make amends.

May we enjoy our passion,
But never let compassion die,
Thinking in selfless terms as we,
Never emphasising I.

May we forever be soul-mates,
May our love eternally last,
May the food of love sustain us,
May we never have to fast.

May we use each other’s strengths,
When we are feeling weak,
May we both learn to compromise,
And always as one voice speak.

May we never keep dark secrets,
May we never tell each other lies,
May we both work unceasingly,
To ensure our love never dies.

This 'phoem' is titled "Wedding Vows” (Love Poetry -Wedding Poetry) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Love Poetry - Poetry,
from the 'Phoetry Book', View Points and Points of View".

I describe Phoetry as a fusion of poetry and photography.
I came up with the Phoetry concept in 1994.
Phoetry can also be described as Visual Poetry and loosely described as Concrete Poetry.

Yes, in 2009 many (sixty) of my most popular poems were published in a hard backed Phoetry Book, entitled 'View Points and Points of View'.  This book has proved so popular that it has also been recreated in DVD and a CD formats.  It has now also been recreated as an iPad App ('Phoetry1' by Ross Blewett).  I invented the concept of 'Phoetry' in the early 1990s and describe it as a fusion of poetry and photography. This iPad App is a very exciting new development, as it too recreates my original book, but also adds the audio of me reading all of the poems.  This combined with 'realistic page turning technology', makes this App unique.  An iPhoe version should be available in the next couple of weeks or so. Thank you for your interest.

That was so amazing and beautiful again. That was also a very sweet love story and I love the picture. I love the words at the end of every sentence. It is very sweet also. I like the poem also because you can sing it or speak it and either way it sounds beautiful.Pinkie Chibi Pie Dancing

Thank you for your very kind words.  This is one of my most popular poems and has been used in wedding ceremonies all over the world.  The photograph is of a very happily married couple in their eighties.  This is just one of the sixty poems in my Phoetry Book, 'View Points and Points of View'.

This is so beautiful. I'm currently planning my own wedding, and this quote really speaks to me about my relationship with my fiancee.

I wanted to :+fav: this so I could come back to it often.

Thank you for sharing this. :heart:
