Twas The Night Before The Wedding - Wedding Poem by Ms Moem

Twas the night before the wedding, and in a young bride’s dreams
Ran thoughts of blissful lifelong love, and everything that means.
Thoughts of morning waking, beside the one she loved;
Fitting together perfectly, like hand fits to a glove.

Twas the night before the wedding, and a young groom’s sleepy smile
Re-lived the story of the girl, who captured his heart with style.
The moment that he saw her, he knew it was for life
And he knew he’d found the lady who was destined to be his Wife.

Twas the night before the wedding, and guests from far and wide
Looked forward to the occasion, of witnessing this marriage, with pride.
Their best clothes pressed and ready, and gifts prepared to give
Ready to help create memories, to be cherished as long as we live.

On the morning of the wedding, all parties gathered together
To celebrate this union, that is bound in love, forever.
And everyone there present, was overjoyed to see
The Bride and Groom united and as happy as happy can be.

Derwent Poem Commission For The Royal Wedding

The Majestic Derwent Royal Wedding Poem Scroll

To commemorate the Royal Wedding, is a commission unlike any other
As William & Catherine will make history as they declare their love for each other.
I was commissioned by Derwent to write a commemorative bespoke poem;
This world renowned company was thrilled to work with Ms Moem.

royal wedding poetry commission

The poem is written on a scroll, presented in a maple box
Filled with 500 pencils, which is really rather a lot.
The collection is called The Majestic and it looks rather regal indeed;
What more could any newlywed Duke or Duchess of Cambridge possibly need?

The Majestic by Derwent

With just 500 boxes created, it is a true limited edition
With a Royal couple and their children within it’s future vision
As the 1st of the 500 will be presented to the couple themselves
Perhaps becoming a cherished heirloom to keep upon their Royal shelves.

The Majestic Royal Wedding Commemorative Box

Derwent have been celebrating the Royals since before Victoria came to the throne
And so it’s an honour to be involved, with a poetic contribution of my own.
So check out The Majestic and tell me what you think of the poem
And enter the Royal Wedding Giveaway from Derwent and Ms Moem.

Born To Be Me

I was born to be somebody.
I was born to excel.
I was born to enjoy all the things I do well.

I was born to be somebody.
I was born to be proud.
I was born to write poetry to be spoken out loud.

I was born to be somebody.
I was born to live life.
I was born to be a mother, and a friend, and a Wife.

I was born to be somebody.
Who were you born to be?
I was born to be somebody; I was born to be me.

Ode In Memory Of Elizabeth Taylor

Glittering lights extinguished and we’re left with the dark,
As Dame Elizabeth Taylor died on the 23rd of March.
She was a veritable legend, an icon, a gem;
Celebrated worldwide, loved by ladies and men.

Born on February the 27th, in 1932
Becoming a Hollywood Great was what she was destined to do.
From British beginnings, America beckoned
And she became a force with whom to be reckoned.

Along with her career, she had a rich family life;
She gave the world 4 children and was eight-times a wife.
10 great-grandchildren followed after she turned 39
And our thoughts go to her family at this difficult time.

Actress and mother,grandmother, wife and friend;
How sad this lady’s life has now come to an end.
Elizabeth Taylor was the epitome of fame
And the world now unites to say goodbye to the Dame.

International Women’s Day | A Poem

Today is a celebration for women all around the world;
Ladies who’ve dared to dream big, ever since they were little girls.
For the diversity and talents that lie within a feminine heart;
For the courage and determination that prevents us falling apart.

We can raise families and build businesses and be proud of all we’ve achieved
Where once over, visions of that scale, could never have been believed.
Ladies, stand up and be counted, smile at how far we have come
And cherish every single day, whether daughter, wife, or mum.

Don’t let anybody tell you that there are set paths for you to follow
As a little girl with a dream, is an inspiring woman of tomorrow.
So celebrate all women, and acknowledge the great things they do
And tell a lady close to your heart, just how much she means to you.

The Petrol Prices | A Poem

Stop! This needs discussion;
It’s about the petrol prices.
They’re practically astronomical;
We’re heading towards a crisis.

It doesn’t seem that long ago
A litre was less than a pound.
It’s now somewhere around extortion;
The price we pay to get around.

The local effects are scary
And the national ones greater still
Pretty soon we’ll all need mortgages
To foot our petrol bills.

But seriously, what matters
As the fuel prices soar ever higher,
It’s added pressure to our budgets
When the economy’s already dire.

The cost of goods will have to rise
To factor in the fuel.
Say goodbye to exotic luxuries
And hello to bread and gruel.

We can all make little adjustments
To try to reduce our spends
Perhaps by combining mini journeys,
Accelerating gently, and anticipating the bends.

So try to maximise fuel economy
To minimise the hit to your bank
And drive slowly when visiting the petrol pump;
Brace yourself to fill up your tank!

Converse About The Verse

So tell me how you’re finding it!
Is your wallet starting to hurt?
Cheekily I’ll say ‘I’m alright Jack’;
It’s good not having to drive to work!

Your First Kiss

The air feels charged with energy,
You know the moment’s near.
Complete exhilaration
Makes intentions felt and clear.

A quickening of your heart beat,
Desire to feel that touch.
Shallow breaths ignite you;
You want this oh so much.

You move a little closer,
Your eyelids semi-closed.
A flutter of your lashes
And your longing is exposed.

And then at last it happens.
Best described as bliss;
An electrical engagement – also known as….
Your first kiss.

Your first kiss I bet is one of the outstanding memories you both hold of your relationship.

Happy Birthday Holly Willoughby

Holly Willoughby Birthday Poem

Glamourous presenter, and true yummy Mum
Today Holly Willoughby turns 30 years young.
With a lovely son and partner, and a daughter on the way
You are practically guaranteed to have a marvellous day.

A true natural beauty, with long flowing locks,
Entertaining us each morning, alongside the silver fox
Not even a naked chef could render you disconcerted
And when Gino did his nudey bit, your eyes were well averted.

Now as you wave goodbye to the tender age of 29
Your thirties will be a journey, through which you’ll continue to shine.
With a glittering showbiz career and happy family by your side;
Holly Willoughby, you’re a star, and you should be brimming with pride.

So from all of your followers and This Morning fans galore,
I hope your 30th birthday brings you all you wish and more.
And because it is your birthday, I decree that Britain be jolly
As everybody joins with me to say Happy 30th Birthday Holly!
