Words that Touch Me

27 SEPTEMBER 2012 HAZEL ANDERSON

wedding wisdom guide for brides words that touch me blog pictureI have heard a multitude of passages read aloud at weddings that I have organized. A question often posed to me is, do you have a favourite passage? I have many is the honest answer. I Am Love is one of them. This passage really affects me no matter how many times I hear it. I can almost get to the part, 'I am the blessing of Grandmothers' before I have to blink away tears. I cannot think of anything else to add.


Read it, and see if you understand why.

I AM LOVE

"Some say I can fly on the wind, yet I haven't any wings. Some have found me floating on the open sea, yet I cannot swim. Some have felt my warmth on cold nights, yet I have no flame. And though you cannot see me, I lay between two lovers at the hearth of fireplaces.

 

I am the twinkle in your child's eyes.
I am hidden in the lines of your mothers face. I am your father's shield as he guards your home. And yet..........Some say I am stronger than steel, yet I am as fragile as a tear. Some have never searched for me, yet I am around them always. Some say I die with loss, yet I am endless. And thought you cannot hear me, I dance on the laughter of children. I am woven into whispers of passion. I am the blessing of Grandmothers. I embrace the cries of new born babies.

 

And yet.......Some say I am a flower, yet I am also the seed. Some have little faith in me, yet I will always believe in them. Some say I cannot cure the ill, yet I nourish the soul. And though you cannot touch me, I am the gentle hand of the kind. I am the fingertips that caress your cheek at night. I am the hug of a child. I am love.

 

Ok off I go, reaching for the tissues, writing it out and reading it back has given me a lump in my throat again..........Is it just me? It cant be. I think the words cover a massive range of life emotions connected with family. A lovely reading to include in your special day!
