Naming Ceremony Readings: ”Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You” by Nancy Tillman

Naming Ceremony Ideas

A naming ceremony is a beautiful way to celebrate the birth of your new child or welcome a child into your extended family. Our naming ceremony readings are here to give you some inspiration for that special celebration.

This naming ceremony reading has been chosen Georgina Halse, a creative celebrant based in East Devon. Her choice, "Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You” by Nancy Tillman is from the children's book of the same name. This poem is from the heart and tells your child that your love is the one thing they can carry with them each day. It's the greatest gift you can give them, and that makes it the perfect reading for your naming ceremony.

”Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You” by Nancy Tillman

I wanted you more Than you will ever know, So I sent love to follow
Wherever you go

It’s high as you wish it. It’s quick as an elf. You’ll never
outgrow it... it stretches itself!

So climb any mountain... Climb up to the sky! My love will find you. My
love can Fly!

Make a big splash! Go out on a limb! My love will find you. My love can
swim!

It never gets lost; never fades, never ends...

If you’re working...

Or playing....

Or sitting with friends.

You can dance ‘til you’re dizzy...

Paint ‘til you’re blue.

There’s no place, not one, That my love can’t find you.

And if someday you’re lonely, Or someday you’re sad, Or you strike
out in baseball, Or think you’ve been bad...

Just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair. That’s me, my
sweet baby, my love is right there.

In the green of the grass... in the smell of the sea... In the clouds
floating by... At the top of a tree... In the sound crickets make at the
end of the day...

“You are loved. You are loved. You are loved,” they all say.

My love is so high, so wide and so deep, It’s always right there even
when you’re asleep.

So hold your head high And don’t be afraid To march to the front If
your own parade.

If you’re still my small babe Or you’re all the way grown, My
promise to you Is you’re never alone.

You’re my angel, my darling, My star... and my love will find you,
Wherever you are.
