Union of Souls - A Wedding Poem
Photo cred: Beard and Mane Photography
My darling, I choose you because I choose hope,
My ‘yes’ to us is a ‘yes’ to a covenant
that will shake and shape the ages.
Today I tie my heart to yours and witness
that three is not easily unravelled.
See now, how the town buzzes and the earth hums with our union,
How, with clasped hands and a kiss,
we confront the prejudice of our ancestors
and set our children free.
I promise to look at this ring and see the infinite possibilities that exist because we said ‘I do’.
I promise to see that this union of souls go beyond me and you.
