Let The Love Grow

Let The Love Grow 

As Man and Wife
You'll build the foundations of your love,
Each kissed placed
Should be your building bricks,  
Warm emotions will radiate, create 
Love of the unknown, 
A wealth of understanding to be nurtured
To be grown.

Your foundations will solidify through your years,  
The laughs, the smiles,
Sometimes the tears, 
Together you will merge, entwine,
Solo outside, but inside combined,
New Memories will be made 
To create your new joint history,
Your future together an intriguing mystery!

But love is organic 
It will flourish and grow, 
Love will regenerate, create even more,
The fresh roots of love will bind
In time,  
Emotions will reach fresh heights, intensify,
Mature !

You must cherish your foundations and roots ,
So your love remains fresh,
New growth will reveal new shoots 
So your two souls can combine to live ,
Spring should remain constant in your hearts, 
Always new ground to uncover, 
New gifts to be found,

Love is your gift ! 

My Daughter asked me to write something for her forthcoming marriage this is the amalgamation of several previous writings combined with my love and hopes for her and her future husband
