The Lovers


I promise to be faithful. I will not consider the possibility, for to consider the possibility is to take the first step toward infidelity.
I promise to be trustworthy – and I will trust you in order to be so.
I promise to be honest to myself in order to be true to you.
I promise to resist the temptation to lie my way out of wrongdoing – lies collect like green corrosion on bright copper, a barrier; a distance.
I promise not to take myself too seriously since my pride may only be fed by the harvest of your approval, the light from your eyes.

Somebody's going to plagiarize this little masterpiece and pass it off as their own creative matrimonial vows.

Maybe you should enter into the wedding planning business Pisces, or write T.V. soap opera marriage scenes.

16 years of marriage has taught be something

Oh, really? What would that be? Subservience? :-) I'm starting to love those little faces, it beats LOL.
