Poem: Today I Marry My Friend

I wrote this poem years ago for Melissa and Joel's wedding. Thought I'd share it with y'all! I'm not much of a poet, but I do love this poem. Also, I don't know a thing about proper punctuation for poetry (is there such a thing?), so forgive my liberties. I put spacing and ellipses where it felt right.

Today I Marry My Friend

Today is the happiest day of my life.
For today...
...we become husband and wife.
I've longed for this day to come,
so that we can be united as one.

Today we start our life together,
And through Jesus... will last forever.
So, take me by the hand, and smile into my eyes.
If only I had wings, I know that I could fly.

Today the Joy of my life begins...
...Today I marry my friend.
