When I say...

A few friends are getting married and I have been wondering about those two words "I DO" that will be said on that fateful day. The words that seal or close the deal. The words that ends singleness, that gives the final "Go ahead" or "Permission" for "two to become and live as one". I sometimes wonder what goes through minds when they say utter those words "I DO".





When I say I do
I am saying "I Love You"
in totality, honesty and truth
devoted only to you

When I say I do...
It means every breath I take
will be to inhale the essence of you
encouraged by the love I have for you


When I say I do...
It means my life will be a testimony
to the love, I have been favoured to find in you
Its covering will be my daily experience
It's meanings engraved within my existence
