I wrote this for Tony, who at the time was my fiance. We read the words together at our wedding - back in 1985. We're still married.

It seems a little corny now, but it brought tears to people's eyes back at the wedding.



If you are the music, then I am the words
without you I lack beauty and harmony.

If you are the words, then I am the music
without you I lack meaning.

If you are the sunset, then I am the clouds
without you I lack colour.

If you are the clouds, then I am the sunset
without you my colours escape all eyes.

If you are the waves, then I am the ocean
without you I lack direction.

If you are the ocean, then I am the waves
without you I am not !

That ain't corn, it's true love. And, if you insist that it's corn, at least its sweet corn. Looks a little like Paul McCartney, don't you think? From this standpoint, that's good, even if it's corny. Hey, I liked it, Terry. You got me to playing with it, and usually that's good--beautiful, just like the others said in better ways than me....Jerry

it is beautiful--the most beautiful is the fact that you are still together!

No way is this corny's beautiful. What could be more special than a gift of words from the heart. In my opinion, there is something extra special in the love of a poet.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

A gorgeous poem, Terry, I can see why it made people cry. How wonderful that the words are still true more than twenty years after you wrote them. A testimony to the fact that marriage can survive in this day and age. (And I might add, your Tony is a most handsome fellow!)

As much as you think it is corny now, I find it to be heart warming and filled with love. The imagery is a prism, full of color and light. What you two shared in 1985 seems to still be alive in 2007.

Very nice. You two are lucky to have found each other. True soulmates, judging by these words.
