Wedding Invite

Ok so most of you probably know that I am taking the suggestion from Annie's blog and posting the poem that my Pa Gramps wrote for our wedding invitations. It meant so much more to all of us that our grandfather was able to be such a special part of our weddings. He is a very talented. man. Thanks Pa.

Remember! Oh remember! It was not too long ago,
A princess with a tilted smile would set our hearts aglow.

But those moments turn to hours, and hours soon depart,
Leaving only treasured memories to dwell within the heart.

It was bound to happen, inevitable some say,
Along would come a handsome prince and carry her away.

The messengers with trumpets were dispatched throughout the land,
To announce the royal wedding as he takes her by the hand.

The people come together, they bow their heads to pray.
And ask for them God's blessing, on this, their special day.

What happens the princess and the charming prince as well?
Why that's a storybook ending that only a tongue can tell.

We have them fast in Heart's fortress, justice swift and true,
We can only keep them forever, perhaps we can make it two.
