Written for my son Jeremy for the life he was choosing to continue to share with Keri via a legal wedding. My daughter Raina read it at the ceremony.
Partial quotes from Khalil Gibran and Marianne Williamson.
Surrender yourself to love.
May your joining be a Sacred Space.
May the two of you find comfort in this space you have created, a haven for your souls.
May you both remove the temptation to judge one another or to direct one another.
May you be bound together in heart and mind as well as body.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
My hope is that you will not criticize, try to control each other or be cruel,
but that you will grow wise in this relationship.
May you see each other’s greatness and provoke each other’s light.
May you bring forth the holiest vibration of love and healing between you both.
If you ever become afraid to love, or build walls in front of your hearts, my wish is for you to be healed and set free, set free to love each other all ways.
