Now is the sunrise of our love.

As our days unfold before us,
bless us with friendship, patience and understanding,
for without these, love cannot endure.

Bless us with courtesy, kindness and compassion for 
each other,
 for without these, love cannot flourish.

Bless us with laughter and tears, toil and fun,
 for without these love cannot grow.

May we live together
    love together,
    grow together,
     be together,

from the sunrise of our love
until the sunset of our lives.
