AN INUIT LOVE POEM.


Some weeks ago as part of the Freeverse meme hosted by Cara over at OOH .... BOOKS! , Jenners at FIND YOUR NEXT BOOK HERE shared some poems that were very personal to her, including some which were read at her wedding. Inspired by this I decided to do the same.

Three years ago, on September the 2oth 2006, Husband dearest and I re-newed our Wedding vows and as part of the service, standing, facing each other and holding hands we read this INUIT love poem - The words highlighted in red spoken by me, blue, Husband dearest and purple, both of us.
You are my Husband
You are my Wife.
My feet shall run because of you
My feet dance because of you
My heart shall beat because of you
My eyes see because of you
My mind thinks because of you
And I shall love, because of you.
Beautiful words aren't they? And everyone of them meant.

That is a beautiful poem. Not many husbands and wives could read that to each other and actually mean it. Congrats on being able to.
