Candle Poem

Eons ago we did a post of favorite wedding gift, and someone posted that they received a box of candles with a poem, that goes along the lines of use the two blue ones when, etc.  I saved the poem to use for future gifts, but that file missed being backed up when I converted to Windows 7 and I was wondering who posted it and if they'd be willing to post again?  My best friend's shower is in May, and I'd like to give this to her as a shower present. THANK YOU!!!

    A Basket of Candles
    For [insert Bride's name]

    A basket of candles that come in a pair
    In all different colors, for you two to share
    The white ones burn first
    They are wrapped in white lace
    To celebrate your first married night
    In your new chosen place.
    The green pair is taller, and also much thinner
    Burn with the first company, you have over for dinner.
    The dark blue candles are for after your first fight
    Use them to burn while making up all night.
    Pink candles set the mood and pave the way
    For your first married Valentine’s Day.
    Now, when your first year of marriage is through
    The cream anniversary pair, will light for you two.
    Red candles aflame, both your futures are bright
    Celebrate promotions you’ve worked toward with all of your might.
    By this time we hope, maybe, just maybe
    You can light the purple ones, on the birth of your baby.
    And just when you thought you’d put these away
    Take the light blue ones out-for your fifth anniversary day.
    Now just one more pair left - for the big 2 5
    The anniversary pair that will keep your love alive.
    Congratulations [insert Bride and Groom's names]
    On the start of your forever
    May the two of you always be happy together
    And burn these candles
    Just the way we said
    But please don’t forget-blow them out before bed!

    I would frame it and include it in the top of the box of candles.  So cute!

    The only item I will not compromise on...my bouquet of all purple tulips wrapped in a swatch from my Mom's wedding dress.
