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

Very charming. The song really makes the whole poem come together nicely, I feel. I also love the photos and how they fit with the piece, setting the tone. I like how personal your work is and yet usually about positive events.

Oh Tate what a beautiful heart warming story. I loved the poem, the explanation.. Aris is a gorgeous girl well woman.. My youngest daughter met her husband at about ten years old.. In middle school he was always after her.. He was a basball jock her a cheer leader. She didnt like him at first.... Junior year of highschool at fifteen she went to his house with a rose and asked him if he would be her boyfriend..He was so over whelmed and of course said yes.. They went to Vegas for her 21st birthday.. in front of everyone he clanged his glass and began to speak.. She thought omg what is this silly man doing.. He dropped to one knee and proposed.. She cried her eyes out lol Young love and romance is such a beautiful thing.. The two grandsons in my photos are her babies..

Congratulations to her and Allen and to the entire family... Im so glad I read this lovely story now..

What a great poem and an amazing story following it. You sound like a happy and proud daddy :) your daughter is beautiful and lucky to find a true romantic, one that is still a gentlemen and ask permission.

Wow! This is so wonderful and romantic. And the couple is so blessed for all of you (in both sides) are very supportive to them. Aris is such a sweet guy, and I can feel that you are confident that your daughter's life is secured with him.

I salute in this amazing poetry once again.
