God, the best maker of all marriages, combine your hearts in one, your
realms in one.
When two people are one
in their inmost hearts,
They shatter even the strength of iron or of bronze.
And when two people understand each other
Their words are sweet and strong,
like the fragrance of orchids.
Heaven give you many, many merry days!
You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Two souls with but a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one.
In as much as love grows in you, so in you beauty grows. For love is the
beauty of the soul.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams.
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth... Love is like a lovely
rose, the world's delight.
One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life; That word is love.
My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.
