A fairer creature I never did see,
Than she who brought me jubilee,
Of whom noble poets and sonnets sing,
The beautiful one who takes my ring.
Far fonder than the sweet roses dare,
She surpasses ever their beauty fair,
In sacred white she casts away the veil,
Her beauty regales me in full assail.
The shimmer of her eyes stills the room,
The light of her smile shines the groom,
Standing by my side she fills my dreams,
At the altar, a resplendent angel, she seems.
Alas, my love, I have become one with thee,
Be my companion evermore, for eternity,
Together we will soar over the deepest hollows,
Bride and groom we’ll fly as the future follows.
I wrote this poem in 2002 for my wife to commemorate ten years together. A decade later, it is as true now as ever.
