The Reading

This week’s reading is poem “Will You Ever?” by Kaitlyn M. Yawn. It explores the depths of friendship, and how friendship is akin to the deepest romantic love.


I don’t think you will
Ever fully understand
How you’ve touched my life
And made me who I am.

I don’t think you could ever know
Just how truly special you are,
That even on the darkest nights
You are my brightest star.

You’ve allowed me to experience
Something very hard to find,
Unconditional love that exists
In my body, soul, and mind.

I don’t think you could ever feel
All the love I have to give,
And I’m sure you’ll never realize
You’ve been my will to live.

You are an amazing person,
And without you I don’t know where I’d be.
Having you in my life
Completes and fulfils every part of me.


Why We love It

This is one of our favourite wedding readings for the Maid of Honour, because it encompasses the importance and intensity of female friendships. The intense expression of love in this poem is bound to get the whole reception in tears! You can round off your speech by linking the lovely sentiments in the poem to how the bride and groom feel about each other.
