Today, my heart sings--oh what a gift your are,
and I promise, my most precious friend, to hold
you gently in my life so not to mar
the fragile sweetness of our love, to mold
our lives together, our spirits bound
yet distinct, to help you grow and flower
year after year, to share and keep the ground
of our lives rich and open to every hour
of the sun. Today, I take your hand, knowing
clouds and obstacles will come along the way
and vow always to be with you, showing
you my love by what I do, not what I say.
You are a gift too valuable to measure,
and I will cherish you, my lovely treasure.
