Our Wedding Day

October 17

To James On Our Wedding Day

By Brenda Byassee

And so the morning dawned,
breaking into day.
The music with its melody
had a thousand things to say.
It started with a timid tune,
an underlying current,
of whispered joy and promises.
Nothing could deter it.
The beat became a steady one –
the hushed chords growing stronger
until the song of love sang out,
and they were two no longer.

the happy bride

the happy groom

“There were bells on the hill,
but I never heard them ringing.
No, I never heard them at all…
Till there was you.
There was love all around
But I never heard it singing…
Till there was you.”

our first kiss as Mr. and Mrs.

    • If you would visit your hick kin more often, you could see the whole album. It’s pretty awesome if I do say so myself. And, yes, I wrote the poem for him for our wedding. Darla read it and then sang the song at the end, Till There Was You. I will dig out your pictures for one of the love stories. It’s a testament to love (?) or perseverance (?) that you guys have been married for… how long?
