Always and Forever. That’s how everyone goes into marriage I think. Well, I LIKE to think everyone goes into marriage thinking that. It would be a sad state of affairs for someone to go into marriage thinking “Ok, I can’t wait to get this done so I can go get it annulled!” although I am sure there are a few that do. But for those who get married for all the right reasons, I would think that would be how they would think about it. That was what we chose for our wedding song. Of course it was a very popular song back in the day which is when Hubby and I got married. The name of the group was Heatwave.
Here are the words:
Always and forever each moment with you
Is just like a dream to me that somehow came true
And I know tomorrow will still be the same
‘Cause we’ve got a life of love that won’t ever change and
Everyday love me your own special way
Melt all my heart away with a smile
Take time to tell me you really care
And we’ll share tomorrow together
I’ll always love you Forever, forever
There’ll always be sunshine when I look at you
Something I can’t explain just the things that you do
And if you get lonely phone me and take
A second to give to me that magic you make and
Loving you is the thing that I plan
For a very long time
Me and you, you and me, we as one

Now, is that not THE perfect wedding song? Now our wedding may not have been fancy and perfect and our marriage has not ALWAYS been perfect but we’re still going strong after almost 29 years. I don’t know if the wedding song had anything to do with it but I’m sure it didn’t hurt and sometimes when things haven’t always gone so well, I will stop and think about those lyrics and what they meant to me then and what they should always mean to me and to anyone taking that plunge. Oh, and for your viewing amusement, here are a couple of pictures of us dancing to that song at our wedding.
DANG…. That WAS a long time ago…
This post was brought to you by Mama Kat and her Writer’s Workshop and prompt #1.) Write about your wedding song. What was it and why did you choose it? The reason we chose it was because it was exactly how we felt at the time and it conveys those feelings exactly and it still makes me cry when I hear it.
