A Marriage Prayer

Take care to

Build your union

Sacred

A gentle,

Wide open scaffold

So that it may hold

And protect your love

Until your bodies

And your minds

Come to pour

Like honeycomb

Drips

Golden thick

And sticking onto

All the life

That surrounds

Use your marriage

To harbor love

Like honey between you

Until that glue

Overabundant

Overflows

Oozes in such sweet

That it can be used

To infuse

So much more good

Into this world

(This year

And all others,

May our marriage

Grow our love

So that we may

Give more love to others

Amen.)
