My dear, you are wonderful to me,
And nothing would ever change
The way I truly feel for you,
And on this wonderful wedding day,
Mark this ring I give to you,
And examine it closely.

Observe the shiny gold band
As it reflects the sunlight this beautiful day,
And look at the hollow hole that fits your
Finger just so perfectly,
As it is yours forever.
Mark the inside of the ring,
And you will see an inscription,
For this is our motto,
The thing that binds us together,
And the way I truly feel about you.
Read it; what does it say?
‘Semper simul erimus.’

This means ‘Forever together, we shall be, ’
Meaning that we will always be together
Even when we become parents,
Even when our children become adults
And move off to college and find occupations,
Even when the nest is empty,
Even when our children have children
And we become grandparents,
Even when we grow old together
And have wrinkles across our foreheads,
And even when Death comes to take us away,
We shall always be together,
For not even Death can tear us apart,
For when we die, we shall be in heaven together,
Cherishing every moment of our wonderful lives
That God blessed us with.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
