If there’s one thing that you learn as you get older, it’s that life is short and savouring every moment with those we love is one of the best things we can do. The thing is that we can get so caught up in worries and our busy lives that we forget to take it all in. This wedding ceremony reading, If I Thought by Dana Schwartz, is a beautiful poem that reminds us to live every moment with the love of our lives as if it were our last. It’s a heartfelt way to tell your partner that you will love them forever and then some. Read it and try not to tear up!
If I Thought by Dana Schwartz
If I thought for just one moment that this would be my last breath,
I’d tell you I’ll love you forever, even beyond death.
If I thought for just one moment that your face would be the last I’d see,
I’d take a million pictures and save them just for me.
If I thought for just one moment that your voice would be the last I’d hear,
I’d listen attentively and promise not to shed a tear.
If I thought for just one moment that your touch would be the last I’d feel,
I’d embrace you and know that this has all been real.
If I thought for just one moment that my heart would beat its last beat,
I’d thank the Lord for allowing us to meet.
