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

very interesting story in which this poem was created. I liked youe style very much. it has an author like touch within it. the sequence od lines matched the sequence of events inside the poem. I felt truth laid within; a happy ending at the end, a happy start at the begining, now they look at their future to be as happy as ever. I liked very much and best luck

that is the man who is madly in love with his lady. i liked all the planning that concluded in the proposal at just the right moment. great story to pass down the generations.
