What would she have said? (poem for Adam and Ellen’s wedding)

What would she have said?
If she were here today?
To see her eldest son
Taken away?

What would she have said?
As a daughter she gained?
About the weather outside?
And whether it rained?

What would she have felt?
An unseen tie broken
Her son loved as a husband
With rings given as tokens

What would she have thought?
As two became one
Would she have shed tears
Of joy for her son

What advice would she have given
To a couple starting out
“Make the most of each day”
Of that, there is no doubt

What would she have said?
I’m sure this is true:
“I love you my Adam,
And I love you Ellen, too”
