The Wedding Poem

Just to be happy is all you need
not dreams of ambition or desire to succeed.

Just to be happy always caring and kind
with love in your heart and peace in your mind.

Just to be happy in a warm embrace
no need to be cool or win any race.

Just to be happy no grey skies above
the sun always shining down on your love.

Just to be happy your whole life through
Sharing true love, the way that you do.

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Thank you Ian,
The body of this poem is from one I wrote a few years ago, but I have changed it to make it more suitable for a newly wed couple,
