Religious and Spiritual Poetry
I believe poetry to be especially spiritual. David wanted his wedding vows to include a passage from the bible, so I turned to Proverbs for inspiration (and went from there).

Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life
and I am so happy and thankful to the Lord,
because He sent to me such a beautiful wife.
Evil pursues sinners, but to the righteous,
good shall be repaid,
 I must have done something so wonderfully right,
because I have found a love that is truly heaven made.
The wise woman builds her house,
but the foolish pulls it down with her hands,
 I'm so glad that I've met a wise woman,
a woman who always gives me an ear that understands.
The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways,
but a good man will be satisfied from above
and I know I'm not truly worthy of this joy,
but I thank my lucky stars for being blessed by your love.
A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance,
but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken,
but my heart soars like a bird
and I hang off every word that you've ever spoken.
The lips of the wise disperse knowledge,
but the heart of the fool does not do so,
so I'll love you today, tomorrow and for always
(and wisely, that's something you needed to know).
Righteous lips are the delight of kings
and they love him who speaks what is right,
so I'd like to thank you for my two beautiful boys
and standing there, they do make a simply wonderful sight.
Pride goes before destruction
and a haughty spirit before a fall,
so thankfully we were saved on 9th March,
I'm glad we had the sense to answer the Lord's call.
 Thanks to Cath, Justin, Sharon and Neil,
you've been there when it mattered the most
and thanks to all our new brothers and sisters,
we've got a whole new family of which to boast.
We can feel their love and support
and can already sense it in the years to come.
Thanks are also due to Lewis and Aaron
and of course, to their wonderful Mum.
Because, together we are one family,
with our destinies forever entwined
and a love like ours is so precious,
it's rare, it's a treasure, it's hard to find.
So, thanks to you all, thanks to the Lord,
I think He has certainly played his part.
He has been our inspiration, our guiding light
and He gave me the joy and words that fill my heart.
And with that heart, I will love you forever,
that's my sincere proverb to you,
you make me feel like the proverbial,
so with blessed thanks, I happily say "I do".
Inspired by Proverbs: 13:12, 13:21, 14:1, 14:14, 15:13, 15:7, 16:13, 16:18.

"Hi Allen,
            What can I say? Absolutely brilliant.   Just a last minute thought I was originally married in a civil ceremony on 25th Oct 1997 does this now mean I have two anniversaries to remember!!.

Clouds paper would be brilliant please and I would love it autographed and to see as you put it "the cutting room floor".

I would be delighted if you published it on your site or in book form in the Sands of Time.

Once again brilliant :).
Many many thanks
David Walker"

And after the ceremony:

"Hi there Allen the poem was received brilliantly and everyone loved it and
gave out a few of your cards as well so hopefully you will get some business
out of it as well. 

Take Care & God Bless
