Table & Speech Haiku from T & M Wedding

September 6, 2017

“Some lucky people
Realize once in a lifetime
Only happens once”

“Back in the day you
Didn’t meet online, you met
At South By Southwest”

“Relax, enjoy, laugh,
Sing, love, meditate; today
Will never return”

“Whatever you make
Of today, you will carry
With you tomorrow”

“Whatever else I
Do, I know my whole life through
I’ll remember you”

“Best friends are there from
Once upon a time until
Forever after”

“Give thanks for every
Second of every day you
Spend with those you love”

“If you want to know
Someone don’t listen to their
Words; watch their actions”

“Wherever you are
Tonight, sleep peacefully and
Wake up happily”

“Listen to your heart
For it knows how to listen
To wind and silence”

“If we all could see
Through the eyes of a child
We would see magic”

“Don’t just live and think
Outside the box, live and think
Like there is no box”

“Humans need love for
Sustenance just as they need
Clothes, food and shelter”

“Your joie de vivre
And je ne sais quoi make me
Want to faire l’amour”

Haiku Duet:
1. “Firgun, a Hebrew
Word which means to take joy in
Someone else’s joy”

2. “Let us all firgun
For Michael and Tessa in
Their magic moment”
