What Love Is Meant To Be

What Love Is Meant To Be

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

It had been six years to the day from that beautiful afternoon As there he knelt, hoping she felt as he had 'neath the harvest moon

"

 Aris and Andrew 

Start this adventure six years past

on the day that they both met

For on that day, he put away

all thought of fear or regret

 

He’d held this dream from the minute

of the day they'd become friends

That they would be, held happily

in a marriage that never ends

 

Then just at five fifty seven

he had knelt down upon the green

As all around, a hushed sighed sound

fell across the uncommon scene

 

It had been six years to the day

from that beautiful afternoon

As there he knelt, hoping she felt

as he had 'neath the harvest moon

 

 Only after risking his heart

in hopes that only love can bring

There on the sod, in front of God

gave her his hand clasping the ring

 

To say I was moved is surely

the understatement of the year

For it struck me, as it had she

as both our hearts then shed a tear

 

He had been planning it for months

a treasure for us all to see

And each one knew, so sweet the view

 this is what love is meant to be




Aris and Andrew

Married 6/6/15


The greatest honor ever bestowed upon me,walking her down the aisle

Aris and I last night 

6/6/15

Hi Wendy I hope you are well I havent been on much . Thank you
Is there anything I can really say that some one would say better. There was so much in this that is makes me wonder and ask how some could not get stronger, but the words answer it. A person can be stronger.




Nice job,


and that g and t is still on me.
