What You Are To Me I am a rose, you are my thorns, clutching to me, protecting me. I am the sun, you are my rays, helping me to shine and to be all that I can. I am a lake, you are my water, filling me with ideas, dreams, and hopes for the future. I am a tree, you are my leaves, sharing who and what I am and becoming an important part of my life. I am a heart, you are my beat, beating rhythmically to my happiness, my fear, my sadness, my excitement. I am me and you are with me, to share all that I am, to share life, love, and happiness. Always. ~~ Bernice Ellrick
Have you ever felt like you knew someone a long, long time ago? Another place, another time, a friendship of the souls? Two people who share a bond for reasons neither know, A feeling that they were friends, a long, long time ago? Did they stumble onto each other by pure circumstance, Or was it fate and destiny that played a certain hand? Two souls intertwined, they are worlds apart, But the soul, it knows no difference, in matters of the heart. Somehow they are drawn together, fate has brought them back, Each living worlds apart, they journey separate paths. When this life is over, and a new life begins, Their souls will find each other, two souls that we call friends. ~~ Lia Fail
Standing by, All the way. Here to help you through your day. Holding you up, When you are weak, Helping you find what it is you seek. Catching your tears, When you cry. Pulling you through when the tide is high. Absorbing your voice When you talk. Standing by when you learn to walk. Just being there, Through thick and thin, All just to say, you are my friend. ~~ Brittani Kokko
Friendship is like the breeze, You can't hold it, Smell it, Taste it, Or know when it's coming, But you can always feel it, And you'll always know it's there, It may come and then go, But you can know it'll always be back. ~~ Terri Fanning
Friends will come and friends will go, The seasons change and it will show, I will age and so will you, But our friendship stays, strong and true ~~ Anonymous
My Vow To You When you are sad, I will dry your tears When you are scared, I will comfort your fears When you need love, my heart I will share When you are sick, for you I will care You will feel my love when we are apart Knowing that nothing will change my heart When you are worried, I will give you hope When you are confused, I will help you cope When you are lost, and can't see the light My love will be a beacon, shining ever so bright This is my vow, one that I pledge till the end For you above all are my wife and best friend These words I have written, speak of my love for you From my lips these words spoken, shall always ring true God has blessed me, and with your hand in mine Both of our hearts, will forever intertwine Into all lives, falls pain and sorrows, I promise together, we will meet all tomorrows Happy in marriage, honor and love blessed in unity by God above ~~ Earl J. Dawson Jr.
As Long As You're Near The first time we met I could see, That you and I were meant to be. Your eyes were so gentle, Your smile so true, When you first held my hand I just knew. Now the time has gone by Through laughter and tears, These days I shall cherish for years upon years. Those memories we have shall never fade, For those are the steps that we have made. That was the past, The future is near, I anxiously wait for what will appear. New homes, more laughter, children so dear, Everything will be wonderful as long as you're near. ~~ Cristy Smith

Ethnic Verses

Jumping the Broom Our ancestors saw the wedding brooms not only as the threshold of the holy land of matrimony, but as a means of sweeping away evil from the paths of their lives. We have jumped the wedding broom today as a vow . . . to remember our past with pride, to reclaim and relate our heritage and our customs, and to sweep away hatred, cruelty and prejudice from our paths. Thank you for celebrating our union and our heritage and for remembering with us.
