my journey through the pursuit of love & happiness

#lovequotes, the life that i have

Posted on: February 6, 2011

This was the poem that was read at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Reading it leaves me with that humbling feeling of love and I think it is a very beautiful expression of amor.

The author wrote the poem after the death of his girlfriend. “I transmitted a message to her which I had failed to deliver when I’d had the chance,” said the author in his 1998 memoir.

I think that point makes it all the more beautiful to read at a wedding ceremony.

The daily routine of life can blind us to the opportunities and chances to show and express love.

Here is to love making all of our lives more enriched and worthy.

The life that I have by Leo Marks

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.
