Not to be confused with the Friends theme tune, I'll Be There For You by Louise Cuddon is a wedding reading that paints a real and often funny picture of life's realities. From missing the train (even though you swallowed your pride and legged it up the platform), to realising your panic buy jeans don't fit five minutes before you're supposed to leave, it's a testament to that one person who can make you feel okay about life! So what if you missed the train? That just makes time for a sit down and a G&T, and maybe it's actually skirt season anyway... So if you're up for a laugh and entertaining your guests, we have the free printable copy and a jpeg down below for that Pinterest board. Happy reading!

I’ll Be There For You

by Louise Cuddon

I’ll be there my darling, through thick and through thin
When your mind’s in a mess and your head’s in a spin
When your plane’s been delayed, and you’ve missed the last train.
When life is just threatening to drive you insane  

When your thrilling whodunit has lost its last page
When somebody tells you, you’re looking your age
When your coffee’s too cool, and your wine is too warm
When the forecast said “Fine”, but you’re out in a storm  

When your quick break hotel, turns into a slum
And your holiday photos show only your thumb
When you park for five minutes in a resident’s bay
And return to discover you’ve been towed away  

When the jeans that you bought in hope or in haste
Just stick on your hips and don’t reach around your waist
When the food you most like brings you out in red rashes
When as soon as you boot up the bloody thing crashes  

So my darling, my sweetheart, my dear…
When you break a rule, when you act the fool
When you’ve got the flu, when you’re in a stew
When you’re last in the queue, don’t feel blue

’cause I’m telling you, I’ll be there.  


Then good job we've got one! Download your free copy of I'll Be There For You by Louise Cuddon below.
