A Sister's Wedding


Life circles abundantly, filled with love, holding hands,
eyes drinking, emptying souls into each other.

Altars holding wedding vows and holy prayers to those
present, wishing happiness.

A family's love held together in a close-knit circle, Dad
giving away his daughter, widening our circle of love.

As they are joined, husband and wife, our family circle
opens, enlarges, and encompasses with love.

Precious, beautiful, wedding ceremony, touching lives and
souls of many.

Tears falling, misty-eyed joy, emanating from a brother and
sister's souls.

One on one, individuals, little brother too, always one
family no matter how many more are added.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
