  • These I Can Promise

    I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
    I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold;
    I cannot promise you an easy pathway
    That leads away from change or growing old.

    But I can promise all my heart's devotion;
    A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;
    A love that's ever true and ever growing;
    A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.

    Yes, I'll Marry You
  • I Promise

    by Dorothy R. Colgan
    I promise to give you the best of myself
    and to ask of you no more than you can give.

    I promise to respect you as your own person
    and to realize that your interests, desires and needs
    are no less important than my own.

    I promise to share with you my time and my attention
    and to bring joy, strength, and imagination to our relationship.

    I promise to keep myself open to you,
    to let you see through the window of my world into my innermost
    fears and feelings, secrets and dreams.

    I promise to grow along with you,
    to be willing to face changes in order to keep our relationship
    alive and exciting.

    I promise to love you in good times and bad,
    with all I have to give and all I feel inside in the only way I know how.
    Completely and forever.
  • Why Marriage?

    by Dena Acolatse

    Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
    With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body...

    Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me,
    Who won't hold them against me,
    Who loves me when I'm unlikable,
    Who sees the small child in me, and
    Who looks for the divine potential of me...

    Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
    With someone who thanks God for me,
    With someone I feel blessed to hold...

    Because marriage means opportunity
    To grow in love in friendship...

    Because marriage is a discipline
    To be added to a list of achievements...

    Because marriages do not fail, people fail
    When they enter into marriage
    Expecting another to make them whole...

    Because, knowing this,
    I promise myself to take full responsibility
    For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness
    I create me, I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
    Together we create our marriage...

    Because of this understanding
    The possibilities are limitless.

  • Love

    by Ann Landers
    Love is a friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet, understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad. It settles for less than perfection, and makes allowances for human weakness. Love is content with the present. It hopes for the future and it doesn't brood over the past. It's the day-in and day-out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories, and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don't have it, no matter what else there is, it is not enough, so search for it, ask God for it, and share it!
  • I Love You

    by Roy Croft
    I Love You,
    Not only for what you are,
    but for what I am when I am with you,
    not only for what you have made of yourself,
    but for what you are making of me.
    I love you for the part of me that you bring out.
    I love you for putting your hand into my overflowing heart
    and passing over all the foolish, weak things that can't help,
    dimly seeing there, and for drawing out into the light all the
    beautiful belongings that no one else had looked quite far enough to find.
    I love you because you are helping me to make of the dreams of my life
    not a thought but a reality,
    Out of the works of my every day not a reproach but a song...
    Yes, a Love song.
  • Perfection

    by David Kirk
    Perhaps perfection seems too bold
    A word here to apply.
    For once love penetrates the heart,
    It spreads to cloud the eye.

    Still we in blindness take a chance
    And gladly join in Cupid's dance.
    For every joyful heart has shown,
    Perfection dwells in love alone.
  • Love's Philosophy

    by Percy Bysshe Shelley
    The fountains mingle with the river,
    And the rivers with the ocean,
    the winds of heaven mix forever
    With a sweet emotion;
    Nothing in the world is single,
    All things by a law of divine
    In another's being mingle -
    Why not I with thine?

    See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
    And the waves clasp one another,
    No sister flower could be forgiven
    If it disdained its brother;
    And the sunlight clasps the earth,
    And the moonbeams kiss the sea -
    What are all these kissings worth,
    If thou kiss not me?
  • Away From You

    by Sarah Brightman
    Away from you there is no music,
    There is no sunlight,
    The world is gray.
    Away from you
    The clocks are frozen,
    And time's a traveler
    Who's lost his way.

    I'm half alive
    Until the moment
    The door swings open
    and you walk through,
    Now my soul is afloat
    On a melody of music
    That I could feel such joy
    I never knew.
    And so you see
    Why I can never be
    Away from you.
  • The Love You Have Will Change

    The love you share will change, moment by moment.
    To maintain the foundation you have already built,
    you must place your faith in the ebb and flow of life,
    of love, of relationships.
    We encourage you to leap at the flow of the tide
    and not resist its ebb, for it will always return.
    The only true continuity, in life as in love,
    is in growth, in freedom,
    in the sense that dancers are free,
    barely touching as they pass,
    but partner in the same pattern.
  • I'll Wait For You

    by Bruce Springsteen
    We said we'd walk togeter, baby come what may
    That come the twilight should we lose our way
    If as we're walking a hand should slip free
    I'll wait for you
    And if I should fall behind
    Wait for me. We swore we'd travel, darlin' side by side
    We'd help each other stay in stride
    But each other's steps fall so differently
    But I'll wait for you
    And if I should fall behind
    Wait for me. Now everyone dreams of love lasting and true
    But you and I know what this world can do
    So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
    And I'll wait for you.
    If I should fall behind, wait for me.
    Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead,
    There ‘neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
    Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
    I'll wait for you.
    And should I fall behind,wait for me.
    Darlin' I'll wait for you.
    Should I fall behind, wait for me.
  • See What Flowers are at my Feet

    by John Keats
    See what flowers are at my feet,
    What soft incense hangs upon the boughs,
    Wherewith the seasonable mouth endows
    The grass, the thicket, and the fruit-tree wild;
    White hawthorne, fast-fading violets
    And the coming musk-rose, full of dewy wine,
    The murmurous haunts of summer eves.
  • A Summer's Day

    by William Shakespeare
    Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
    Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
    Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
    And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
    Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
    And often is his gold complexion dimm'd,
    And every fair from fair sometime decllines,
    By chance, or nature's changing course untrimm'd:
    But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
    Nor lose possession of that fair thou ou'st,
    Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
    When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
    So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
    So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
  • How Do I Love Thee?

    by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
    I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
    My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
    For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
    I love thee to the level of every day's
    Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
    I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
    I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
    I love with a passion put to use
    In my old grief's, and with my childhood's faith.
    I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
    With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,
    Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose,
    I shall but love thee better after death.
  • Sonnet 18

    by William Shakespeare
    Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
    Thou art more lovely and more temperate...
    When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st
    So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
    So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
  • Sonnet 116

    by William Shakespeare
    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments. Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove:
    O, no! It is an ever-fix'd mark,
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
    It is the star to every wandering bark,
    Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
    Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
    Within his bending sickle's compass come;
    Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
    But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
    If this be error and upon me prov'd,
    I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd.
  • Touched By An Angel

    by Maya Angelou
    We, unaccustomed to courage
    exiles from delight
    live coiled in shells of loneliness
    until love leaves its high holy temple
    and comes into our sight
    to liberate us into life.

    Love arrives
    and in its train come ecstasies
    old memories of pleasure
    ancient histories of pain.
    Yet if we are bold,
    love strikes away the chains of fear
    from our souls.

    We are weaned from our timidity
    In the flush of love's light
    we dare be brave
    And suddenly we see
    that love costs all we are
    and will ever be.
    Yet it is only love
    which sets us free.
  • When Two People Are at One from I Ching

    by Fu Xi
    When two people are at one
    in their inmost hearts
    They shatter even the strength of iron
    or of bronze
    And when two people understand each other
    in their inmost hearts
    Their words are sweet and strong
    like the fragrance of orchids.
  • Blessing for a Marriage

    by James Dillet Freeman
    May your marriage bring you all the exquisite
    excitement marriage should bring,
    and may life grant you also patience,
    tolerance, and understanding.
    May you always need one another -
    not so much to fill your emptiness
    as to help you to know your fullness.
    A mountain needs a valley to be complete;
    the valley does not make
    the mountain less, but more;
    and the valley is more a valley because
    it has a mountain towering over it.
    May you need one another, but not out of weakness.
    May you want one another, but not out of lack.
    May you entice one another, but not compel one another.
    May you embrace one another, but not out encircle one another.
    May you succeed in all important ways with one another,
    and not fail in the little graces.
    May you look for things to praise, often say, "I love you!"
    and take no notice of small faults.
    If you have quarrels that push you apart,
    may both of you hope to have
    good sense enough to take the first step back.
    May you enter into the mystery which is
    the awareness of one another's
    presence - no more physical than spiritual,
    warm and near when you are
    side by side, and warm and near when
    you are in separate rooms
    or even distant cities.
    May you have happiness,
    and may you find it making one another happy.
    May you have love, and may you find it loving one another.
  • Reprise

    by Ogden Nash
    Geniuses of countless nations
    Have told their love for generations
    Till all their memorable phrases
    Are common as goldenrod or daisies.
    Their girls have glimmered like the moon,
    Or shimmered like a summer moon,
    Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,
    Now the sunset, now the dawn,
    Here the princess in the tower
    There the sweet forbidden flower.
    Darling, when I look at you
    Every aged phrase is new,
    And there are moments when it seems
    I've married one of Shakespeare's dreams.
  • The Color of My Love

    by David Foster, Arthur Janov
    I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
    Knowing that we'll never part.
    I'll draw the years all passing by
    So much to learn, so much to try.

    I'll paint my mood in a shadow blue,
    Paint my soul to be with you.
    I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones,
    Draw your mouth to my own.

    I'll trace a hand to wipe your tears
    And trace a look to calm your fears.
    A silhouette of dark and light
    To hold each other oh so tight.

    I'll paint the stars in the evening sky,
    Draw the light into your eyes,
    A touch of love, a touch of grace,
    To softly fall on your moonlit face.

    And with this ring our lives will start,
    Let nothing keep our love apart.
    I'll take your hand to hold in mine,
    And be together through all time.
  • From This Day Forward

    by Marianne Williamson
    From this day forward,
    You shall not walk alone.
    My heart will be your shelter,
    And my arms will be your home.
  • Somewhere

    by Sir Edwin Arnold
    Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
    for one lone soul, another lonely soul -
    Each chasing each through all the weary hours,
    And meeting strangely at one sudden goal;
    Then blend they - like green leaves with golden flowers,
    Into one beautiful and perfect whole -
    And life's long night is ended, and the way
    Lies open onward to eternal day.
