Your love for me my raison d’être,
The breath of my lungs, the blood of my veins;
For love I pledge to make our journey better,
To strive for all that life and love attains.
Of bonds so strong no force may put asunder,
This song asserts here now and for all time;
From our first kiss until black sod we’re under,
And other voices echo this dear rhyme.
Two hearts as one, we know the old cliché
But hackneyed truth yet as a truth still stands;
Where vows to some are merely words to say,
To steadfast souls they stay a promise grand.
For without you, what life for me remains,
What paradise to thrive on salted plains?
