Toast


As large as the world
We scoured it for our hearts
We converged to be one
To sustaining our friendship

We’ll be friend and lovers
We’ll be panaceas to puzzles
Oh, the rivers of posterity
Shall we sanction to accumulate,
Our hands clutching their assent

A baptism of eternity this union be
This world of beauty,
Why won’t we laugh glorifying our teeth
To the world?
Marriage from heaven!

Wisdom will be our breastplates
Will power our wheel of progress
Understanding like olive oil
Dripping our foreheads
Above all, friendship warming us

Let the world hear our whistles
Let our marriage jazz the earth
Let our hearts gladden like music
And our voices mellifluous
Orchestrating warmth.

May measurement never predict our love
May our union define friendship
May our laughter be auric
Our footprints worthy of browsing
And in each juncture shall we
Review the past, present and the future

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
