Who do you want the poem written for?
Why do you want the poem written?
We are getting married, and I want it read to her during the ceremony. Not as
vows, but more as a special surprise part of the wedding.
What are the key messages you would like the poem to send?
The things I love about her:
-how she brings me closer to God...
-how she makes me feel like I'm right even when she knows I'm wrong...
-how she supported my passion for motorcycles even though it scared her to
death; she said, "If you die, I'll kill you." Pleas use that line if you can.
-how she stood by me after my wreck and during my surgery on a broken
-her childlike love for animals...
-how she lights up my day with just one smile...
-how I'm honored that she chose me over the million other guys who would love to
be in my shoes
Do you have any funny, sad, happy, embarrassing or otherwise memorable moments
that you would like to share?
One moment that I would love to be included is when Trisha took me out for my
26th birthday. We went out to eat then she took me to a park in Cary. She
brought a candle, some grapes, and sparkling grape juice. It was the sweetest
thing anyone had ever done for me. We had a wonderful conversation. Then we
stopped talking for just a minute and looked up at the night sky. At that very
moment, a shooting star shot across the sky. It was the most perfect moment I
had ever experienced.
Do you have any other comments or thoughts?
I would also like to use a song lyric from Tracy Byrd's "Keeper of the Stars."
I would like for this to end the poem. -"I tip my hat to the keeper of the
stars. He knew what he was doing when he joined these two hearts. I hold
everything when I hold you in my arms. I've got all I'll ever need thanks to
the keeper of the stars."
What style of poem would you prefer? (Happy, sad, romantic etc.)
Romantic; w/a humorous point
I would like for the poem to be romantic first of all, but because I'm known for
making people laugh, I would like there to be at least one part that people can
laugh at. Preferably near the beginning or middle, and end it romantically. It
would be great if you could include all that I wrote in the "key messages"
section and something about the shooting star story. If you had a standard
length that you go by, and you can't fit all this in it, I'll pay a little extra
to lengthen the poem. I look forward to reading the first draft. Thanks a

Man.... That is it!! Your done! I have one question, though. I'm
confused about the wording of the next to last stanza. The part that says,
"and I'm so glad that God starred and kept Trisha" My question is, what are
you trying to say there? That one line throws me off. Can you clear it up
Thanks again. This is awesome! Robert
Hi - Now you're asking some questions
- the inner workings of a crazed poet ! To explain, or at least this is
what I thought when it came to me:
1. God is the keeper of the stars.
2. A shooting star is "spent", a star
in the night sky is not.
3. Stars in the night sky are people's
light, representing each and every soul.
4. Trisha is your star.
5. God decided to keep Trisha for you,
therefore he starred (a play on words)
Heavy I know - but really meaningful.
Hope you agree.
