Our Wedding Vows Renewed

Renewal Of Our August 8, 1987 Wedding Vows

Dear God, Thank you for your Risen Son who is the transcendent bridge for music, poetry, literature, art and eternity when we accept him and act accordingly through His gift of Grace. May I always feel at a body level the hands that are playing my cards belong to you through Jesus via the Holy Spirit. Thank you for placing Yanet in my life as my Northwestern College of Business English Teacher on September 15, 1980. I pledge to lovingly support and affirm all that my sweetheart is, now and forever. She is my model for listening, and I feel compelled to express written gratitude daily for my beloved wife. I pray that we will dance through all time in a cosmic rhyme connecting far past the sun. With faith and strength together, our love will make us one. With faith and strength together, our love will make us one.

Janet and I independently recognized that her poem Our Loving Trek, Revisited – read by Father Phillip Craig in our home July 8th as her reaffirmation of our wedding vows – and my song Twilight Love, were actually describing our courageous and loving approach to her cancer.

Janet Hughes Mersereau’s Poetry

Twilight Love

I wonder why in a lullaby
Will the twilight soon disappear?
It sings to me … oh me oh my
Will the night dispel such fear?

Your shining smile is all I need
To light my entire world.
Your loving gaze can clear the haze,
My courage is unfurled.

We’ll dance through time in a cosmic rhyme
Connecting far past the sun.
With faith and strength together
Our love will make us one.

Your shining smile is all I need
To light my entire world.
Your loving gaze can clear the haze,
My courage is unfurled.

We’ll dance through time in a cosmic rhyme
Connecting far past the sun.
With faith and strength together
Our love will make us one.

With faith and strength together
Our love will make us one.

I Go

I go where my heart
Longs to lead me
I go where my soul
Wants to be

Upon the wings of a dove
My heart is soaring with love
Then the heavens above
Guide you to my hand

Across the seasons divine
I see our souls intertwine
And we will dance
For all time in love

I go to the warmth
Of your laughter
I go to the smile
In your eyes

Upon the wings of a dove
My heart is soaring with love
Then the heavens above
Guide you to my hand

Across the seasons divine
I see our souls intertwine
And we will dance
For all time in love

Take a chance
With romance
Time to dance
Time to dance

For My Sweetheart, Janet

Dawn

Sometimes at dawn I’m the only one
The muse spins her dream in my mind
I’m tuning in to a sweet serenade
The noise all around me disappears

You are the song that fills my heart
With joy and love so completely
All the music that I need sings through you
We are the tune, at dawn, at noon
All the music that I need sings through you

You are the song that fills my heart
With joy and love so completely
All the music that I need sings through you
We are the tune, at dawn, at noon
All the music that I need sings through you
