The One wedding poem by Cheryl Barclay
When the one whose hand you’re holding, Is the one who holds your heart.
When the one whose eyes you gaze into, Gives your hopes and dreams their start.
When the one you think of first and last, Is the one who holds you tight.
And the things you plan together, Make the whole world seem just right.
When the one whom you believe in, Puts their faith and trust in you.
You’ve found the one and only love, You’ll share your whole life through.
