I confess that a bout of insomnia had me watching an old episode of Sex and City last night. A shameful juicy indulgence, I know, but it turned out to be lucky. In that episode, Carrie writes a poem for her friend's wedding that turns out to be really beautiful -- so beautiful that I rewound the DVR and wrote it down:
Carrie's Poem - A Wedding Reading
His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was "I do"
Does the knowledge that it comes from a TV show about being single change the romance of the poem? I'm adding it to my Unique Wedding Readings, but I wonder if guests would want to know the origin. If you used this poem, would you include in the program that it was from Sex and the City?
