People find in music a life expression. They recognize their feelings, their situation at a point, they meet a pause from the ordinary life, they find a refuge. “When words fail music speaks” says Hans Christian Andersen and this is surely the best interpretation one can give to music.
With no surprise the music is for a wedding the main entertainment part. But not even for the first part of a wedding is a missing element, coming to embrace the grooms into their feelings and make it all a loud love expression. Indeed it is a happy life moment and day but in a way, without having close the family part of the enthusiasm is lost. What deep sadness probably one of the grooms feels if the mother is not anymore among living ones.
With resignation but at the same time with conviction of the soul, the spirit watching there up in the sky only through a song can the grooms create the sensation of a closeness with the mother. No matter at what time do you play it you want to be the dedication for her and a consolation for you: lyrics to songs about a mother looking down from heaven on a wedding- it is probably the single way to make it as a substitute for her lack of presence. One of the songs you are looking for, lyrics to songs about a mother looking down from heaven on a wedding, can be “Have I told you lately” by Rod Stewart. As a love dedication to a mother, the part of the song which repeats at the chorus “Take away all my sadness” may be the whole essence.
Another option is “A song for mama” by Boyz II Men. Now it is up to each one to decide having such a song included at the wedding since it may cause so much pain just thinking to the non living mother.
