And So We Bond.

Updated on February 6, 2010

 And So We Bond.

These diamonds

clasped by metal

on your third

finger are meshed
and so we bond together
precious stones,

and gold, to flesh.

Flesh that I have held to be
so precious since we met,
as two souls swear to each  
their everlasting allegiance.

Families gathered,

tear stained faces
all have stood here too,
friends and siblings also touched
for soon their time is due.

Girls all dreaming

of their dream man,
guys all wiping sweat,
grateful that they

aren't the groom,
as they envy what he gets.

Preacher says

some scary things
on all that God expects,
some of those pewbound, feel guilt,
cause they left the

homes they wrecked.

Outside cars go rushing by
a thousand souls enroute,
to lives that started just this way,
it's what love is all about.

When those sweet words

"Kiss the bride,"
are uttered then we'll share,
a kiss like none

we've known before,
that simply says, "I'm there."

I'm there through

times of sorrow,
and I'm there in days of joy,
I'll hold your hand

when you deliver,
our first girl or boy,

I'll cook you all

my favorite things,
dab ketchup from your face,
we'll find a cozy little house,
that we can call "our place."

let's never fight

when days are cold,
or when the sky is sunny,
if anger ever rears it's head,
we'll whisper..."Love you honey.

Someday we'll stand

up here again,
and watch our children say,
the many words of love that we
have both shared on this day.

There's cake to smear,
flowers to toss, and
fun at our reception,
some rocking tunes
our honeymoon,
and some day a


It started here

in lace and veils,
with a long white gown, and tux,
And "hon, you look so handsome,
think I'm gonna cry, Oh shucks!"

Soon we'll hear the

rattle of tin cans
as we limo off to life,
full of love, great hope

and many plans,
we'll share as man and wife.

"The amount that

I love you, right now
would fit in the

corner of my eye


....................My tears.
