    Haven Given Up Hope, I Found You

    My Love
    I waited so long for you
    That I had begun to believe
    There was no such thing as true love,
    That my life would be lived out alone,
    That nothing precious
    Would come in the form of someone to love.
    Finally, after so many sorrows and misteps and losses,
    After I had given up all hope,
    You were given to me like a miracle,
    Like a single elegant star
    In the darkest of nights.
    Now I feel joy
    Now I feel whole
    Now I feel that anything is possible.
    Thank you for coming into my life;
    Thankyou for loving me well.
    I have waited so long for my heart to be glad,
    For my soul to be full.
    Thank you for coming into my life.
    Thank you for coming into my love.
    I, _____, take you, ______,
    From this day forward and into the long forever,
    To be my beloved, my sweetheart, my darling, my wife/husband.
    I promise always to love you,
    To honor you, to adore you,
    To give thanks for the gift of your presence.
    You are the one I admire;
    You are the one I adore.
    You are the one I choose to go on with forever,
    From now until the end of my life.

    Marriage by Mark Twain

    A Marriage, by Mark Twain

    A marriage makes of two fractional lives a whole;
    It gives two purposeless lives a work,
    And doubles the strength of each to perform it.
    It gives to two questioning natures a reason for living
    And something to live for.
    It will give new gladness to the sunshine,
    A new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth
    And a new mystery to life.

    Bless this Marriage, O God

    Bless this marriage, O God,

    as they begin their journey

    down the road of life together.

    We don’t know what lies ahead

    for the road turns and bends.

    But help them to make the best of

    whatever comes their way.

    Help them to hug each other often…

    laugh a lot, talk more, and argue less.

    Help them to continue to enjoy

    each other as they did when they first met.

    Help them to realize that nothing nor no one

    is perfect and to look for the good in

    all things and all people, including themselves.

    Help them respect each other’s likes and dislikes,

    opinion and beliefs, hopes and dreams and fears

    even though they may not always understand them.

    Help them to learn from each other

    and to help each other to grow

    mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

    Help them to realize that there is design

    and purpose in their lives as in the world

    and no matter what happens to them

    they must hold on to each other and

    know that things have a way of working out for the good.

    Help them to create for their children a peaceful,

    stable home of love as a foundation

    on which they can build their lives.

    But most of all, dear God, help them to keep lit

    the torch of love that they now share in their hearts

    so that by their loving example they may

    pass on the light of love to their children

    and to their children’s  children forever. Amen

    My Lover Is Mine and I am His

    "My lover is mine and I am his."
    My lover spoke an said to me,
    "Arise, my darling, my beautiful one and come with me.
    You have stolen my heart, my bride;
    You have stolen my heart
    With one glance of your eyes,
    With one jewel of your necklace.
    How delightful is your love, my bride!
    How much more pleasing is your love than wine,
    and the fragrance of your perfume
    than any spice!
    Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb!
    Arise, my darling, my beautiful one and come with me."
    I, the beloved, sang of him,
    "Let him kiss me with the
    kisses of his mouth,
    for your love is more delightful than wine.
    Look, Here he comes,
    leaping across the mountains,
    bounding over the hills.
    Place me like a seal over your heart,
    like a seal on your arm
    for love is as strong as death.
    My lover is like a young stag.
    Like an apple tree amoung the trees of the forest
    is my lover, amoung the men.
    I delight to sit in his shade,
    and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
    He has taken me to the banquet hall,
    and his banner over me is love."
    Compiled from the
    Song of Solomon
