[ Note: Although I did not know who it would be at the time, I can now dedicate this poem to my lovely wife, Holly Rivera. 🙂 ]
This Sacred Vow
As we strive to take this vow together,
I want you to know that always and forever
My love for you will grow and grow,
Never to cease, but eternally to overflow
The boundaries of the thoughts of common man,
Which have dwelt only on self since time began.
As we in Christ, by faith, become one flesh,
Our love for God, as well, must be without blemish;
For if we do not put God first in our relationship,
Our lives will only be filled with endless hardship.
So, as I make this sacred vow to you,
I must also pledge to God to always be true.
