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

Thats so sweet! I'm a sappy romantic but its so rare to see it these days. Romance is truly a lost art. It seems like your daughter will be showered with love and romance for the rest of her days. How wonderful for her. Best wishes for a long and happy relationship for them!

Great story here Tate!
I am so happy your daughter has a man that will meet the high standers of affection you have shown her.
It speaks well of you, your daughter and the Andrew that he felt you were an honorable man and he was able to show his honor in being humble enough to actually ask for your daughter's hand.
Yes, this circle of family and friends is what love was meant to be. To be strong and lasting the two need the support of their foundations in faith, family and friends.
Wonderful beginnings...

What a wonderful story in poetic form. In the third stanza, last line, the word should be "planned" but that's the only correction I see. This kind of story just makes my heart smile!
