I am giving my parents this poem on canvas (with faded photos of me growing up):
Tomorrow is the day, I've dreamed of all my life.
I will then be marrying, becoming my love's wife.
I wanted to tell you how special, you two are to me.
You have made me what I am, and am ready to be.
Tonight I will sleep, with dreams of bygone days,
My loving, carefree childhood, and of my childish ways.
Then I will awake, with dreams of things to come,
What my life will be, and who I will become.
With the morning I will have, emotions flowing free,
I just wanted you to know, I'll need you there with me
Your strength and love will guide me, as I become the bride,
As I start this precious journey, I need you by my side.
I'll always be your daughter, and your love I'll always need,
Though we are starting a new chapter, planting a new seed.
He is my love, my life, my everything to me,
And he will be beside me, as we tackle what will be.
So on the eve of my wedding day, I say these words to you,
Hoping that you realize, you're in everything I do.
Tomorrow I will pledge to him, my very heart and soul,
You have helped to mold me, and he will make me whole
