Another Love Poem and more from Lyndhurst

As promised, this is the love poem Saturday's Groom selected for his Bride. This is such a lovely tribute especially for a couple who is more spiritual than religious.

By Roy Croft

I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.
I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;
I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can't help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you

Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good,
And more than any fate
To make me happy.

You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.

As dinner wrapped up, DJ Rob Kelley took over and got the crowd sweating-- I mean dancing. Well Spun Weddings was everywhere and captured the entire day on video. I look forward to seeing their final product of this audio and visual masterpiece! This was my first time working with both vendors who were so hardworking and very professional!
