Wedding Vows  -Wedding Poem  -Wedding Poetry by CliveBlake Wedding Vows  -Wedding Poem  -Wedding Poetry by CliveBlake


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.

which are part of my range of Love Poetry and are also suitable to use at wedding ceremonies and can be found on my gallery.

If you like your Love Phoetry/Love Poetry a little less serious, punnier/tongue-in-cheek you might want to look at "I Once Had A Relation-Ship"
