Meant To Be

I wrote this poem to honour my brother and his bride on their wedding day. They have said often that they were ‘meant to be’ together so I entitled this poem, ‘Meant To Be.’


This new day dawns in glorious majesty

Is this possible, to love so magically

Nothing dampens the singing heart beatswedding-rings-wallpaper1

It beats faster whenever we meet

I never knew that loves sacred gift

Is to give my life this momentous lift

I’m happy, carefree, in constant heaven

You’ve the cause and my safe haven

From all eternity, we were meant to be

I found you as you were promised to meHeartHands


Through eons and ages and in between

I knew you and you always knew me

We had to meet, it was long overdue

Universally conspired, the scene on cue

Lost in a vortex of the unknown or unseen

All’s right with the heavens and our dream

I am always yours and you are ever minesunset-hands-love-woman

In spirit and body and all things divine

We are now together and always will be

Pledged to be one for all eternity

    Oh that’s just so beautiful……just like you….what a wonderful gift…. your brother and his new bride must be so humble and yes so proud.


    • Thank you so much Ann! That’s so sweet and I deeply appreciate your kind comment. They loved it and I was so focussed on relaying the message of the poem that I was surprised when a number of the guests came over to say that they thought it was beautiful and enjoyed it.

  5. Wendy – beautiful sentiments on one of the most wondrous aspects of being human – when two spirits find their home in each other!!



  6. This is great Wendy – my work is predominantly free verse and I do admire anyone who can write rhyming verse – especially when it’s this good.
