two different events taking place in different times brought together by Pacabel's Canon in D.

A Wedding, Canon in D, God, and Me

Went to the sweetest wedding today
And witnessed happiness, joy, and tender smiles.
The groom was tall and handsome
And beamed as his bride walked the aisle.

Radiance glowed from those faces in love
And the music was Pacabel's Canon in D.
I listened to the organ play the piece
And thought of a place I longed to be.

The colors were lavender and pure white
The flowers were fragrant roses and soft lilies
But my mind took me to another time
As I closed my eyes so peacefully...

I was given the sweetest ride today
And witnessed trees and mountain streams.
The trees reached toward the clear blue sky;
The sun danced through the branches, it seemed

As I was caught up in that place in time,
Emotions welled up inside me
Of Pacabel's Canon in D;
Thanking God for each beautiful tree.

And as the music continued to play,
My memories touched my soul, its true.
For my God spoke to my heart that day
Saying, "Child, I made each one for you."

I opened my eyes; they were filled with tears
And love for my Heavenly Father.
The minister blessed the Bride and Groom
And the couple went forth together.

As the man and woman were married this day
With flowers of fragrant roses and soft lilies
I fell in love again with God's words
He, alone, is who can fulfill me.
