My Wedding gift to my sister

Light embracing the sway of the sea

As waves glide to shore

Sound all hushed as though in melody

Calm as a lullaby’s score


Sunset has grown in her vibrant bliss

Turning water orange and gold

While syrupy waves give the sand a kiss

In fare well or welcome is never told


Lagoon encompassed by trees and brush

High cliffs around stand tall

All nearby there seems a hush

As there stands a waterfall


Its length towers but a small ten feet

Wide and bubbling with life

While here the fresh and salted meet

Also a man a wife


He holds her as the light grows dim

Thinks she is gorgeous and funny

That she herself is everything to him

Her worth no price of money


She smiles back as the water still ran

And looks up into his face

She thinks, he will forever be my man

No matter the time or place


While nemo searches the fathoms deep

In his legendary tale

Becky and chris remain to keep

The love that will not fail


Now the sun sits low on a purple sky

Watching the lovers smile

As they look at each other eye to eye

And plan to stay a while


The water endlessly falls with love

Down to the open lagoon

While stars shine high above

Beside a crescent moon


While sounds are muted in twilights charm

Nothing breaks the hush

The lovers stand both arm in arm

As the water past will rush


Locked together by love and ring

They stand watching the sea

Through the hush of night they hear her sing

This is how your love will be


You will stay together in this motion

Your comfort and your peace.

Thus the promise of the deep ocean

And a love that will not cease

I liked the imagery and the descriptives. I think you wove them quite well into the poem. This is one that makes you use your imagination as you read.

My gift to my sister on her wedding day. I was too scared to read it aloud myself but luckily a lass called laura did it credit.
