Marriage Is the Closest Kind of Friendship
Music: Lovely Molly.
Sequenced by Barry Taylor.
|Marriage is the closest kind of friendship.|
Years of traffic wear away the lines
Between two souls with similar designs,
Ending more in unity than kinship.
Separate actors must play separate parts:
They must alone be riveted by need.
Far beneath that soil a single seed
Roots itself, tenacious in their hearts.
In love there is a trust beyond the word.
Each finds peace in each, as though the light
Needed the tranquility of night,
Deeper than what silence can be heard.
