Take your time, I'm standing here
Above the noise and doubt
Anticipating
I am
Waiting,
Heart is reaching out

Heaven watching, you walk in
Angels holding your place
Heads are turned toward
Your way
Viewing,
Veiling frames your face

Walk up to me, slowly gait
Don't guise around now dear
Engage your gaze keep
It mine
Sublime,
I am drawing near

Staring close, straight into me
Nothing is outstanding
Delight surges through
Your smile
Surely,
Soul to soul, standing

We turn, facing eye to eye
Your hands I take in mine
Words come echoing
Airborne
Tender,
Spirits now entwined

Tears embrace, your softened heart
My hands wipe them away
Heeding when you strain
To say
I do,
With adoration

Do you surely, see the truth?
Whom to you make these oaths?
Can you quite behold
Me yet?
I Am,
He who loves you most

A ring placed, on your finger
I mark you as my own
I am King, you are
My bride
Heaven,
Kneels down at my thrown

What a perfectly gorgeous picture of matrimony! Both as an earthly event and a heavenly one that portrays us as the Bride of Christ. It caused me to sigh with delight! And I love the creative style of rhyming you used.

A+ on this one!

This is outstanding. I really enjoyed that for the most part it could be a description of my own wedding and of the relationship with Jesus. I think many readers will be able to totally relate to this lovely poem on different levels. Keep writing these beautiful pieces. I have a feeling no matter what your genre is you will be able to relate to your readers. Spread your wings and soar.

In addition to agreeing with comments made, I think you did an excellent job with both word choice and metre.
