Your Personal Penguin wedding reading

This entry is part 38 of 52 in the series Awesome Wedding Readings

Here’s the next in my series of awesome wedding readings you might like to include in your wedding ceremony!

Readings are absolutely not a compulsory part of a marriage ceremony. They’re a way of expressing something in a way that’s different from anything you or I can come up with, and they’re also a way of including additional people in the ceremony if you want to.

We’re not necessarily talking about Bible readings here, although you can include Bible passages if you want. You might like to consider poems, passages from films or books (especially those written for children), or song lyrics. To give an even more personal touch, some couples ask their loved ones to write something specifically for their ceremony. There are plenty of options!

Your Personal Penguin, by Sandra Boynton

This is another of my favourite children’s books about friendship. I think kids’ books work really well as wedding readings because they’re designed to be read aloud. As always, I have a hard copy of this one you can use in your ceremony!

I like you a lot
You’re funny, and kind.
So let me explain
What I have in mind…

I want to be
Your personal penguin
I want to walk
Right by your side.

I want to be
Your personal penguin
I want to travel with you
Far and wide.

Wherever you go,
I’ll go there, too.
Here and there and everywhere
And always with you.

I want to be
Your personal penguin
From now on.

Now, lots of other penguins
Seem to do fine
In a universe
Of nothing but ice.

But if I could be yours
And you could be mine
Our cosy little world
Would be twice as nice.

I want to be
Your personal penguin
I want to talk with you
Night and day.

I want to be
Your personal penguin
I want to listen to
Whatever you say.

Look at these wings,
So perfect to hold you.
I’d like to say again
What I have already told you.

Let me be
Your personal penguin
Imagine me,
Your personal penguin

I want to be
Your personal penguin
From now on!
Please?
