“Fourteen Days”

just married

I’m currently within 2 weeks of my 14th anniversary to the most amazing woman I know.

Laura, this one is for you.  I was reminded today of a poem I wrote for you 15 years ago, just 2 weeks before we happily said, “I do!”  I only wish we could have been married earlier.

Along with my salvation in Christ, you are the greatest blessing in my life. Remember this poem?

“Fourteen Days”

In 14 days, we’ll sing his praise,
  as you and I commit our ways, 
to live together for all our days
  in communion and love for our God
In just 2 weeks, we’ll end the streaks
   of simply kissing on the cheeks, 
My heart will pound and my knees grow weak, 
   as our lips together touch.
How can I tell you how I feel, 
   though emotions inside seem so real, 
And I know you’ve waited so long until,
    we would finally be One?
All I think that I can say, 
   is that I watched a bride and groom today,
I watched intently all the way, 
   but my mind was fixed on you.
I’ve saved myself for you,
   for what else could I do,
from before time our Lord knew,
    that you would be the One.
I wrote to you this poem – 
   it’s simple, but it’s true
All of this is just to say
   that I am deeply in love 
      with you.

I'm a husband, father of four, healthcare IT recruiter, pastor and writer. I live in the greater Nashville, TN area where I serve as an elder with Redeeming Grace Church (www.rgcnashville.com).
