BRIDE OR GROOM

Strange how just one moment can
Determine a whole life,
One choice create a family,
One rite a man and wife.

GROOM OR BRIDE

Strange how just these few, brief words
I say today to you
Bind one soul to another,
Make one life out of two.

BRIDE OR GROOM

But so do we take charge of time
And make it all our own,
Joining years together in
A marriage and a home.

GROOM OR BRIDE

And so do we take charge of life
By choosing love each day,
For passions come and passions go,
But love is here to stay.

BRIDE AND GROOM TOGETHER

Marriage vows are promises
We make both to each other
And to ourselves, that we might share
A fragment of forever;

A bit of Eden's innocence
Behind a wall of will,
For though the wide world turn to dust,
I will love you still.
