INDIAN WEDDING BLESSING
This is The Indian Wedding Blessing. My daughter Kathy and her husband had this read at their wedding 19 years ago, and I still think it is terrific. Now we feel no rain, for each of us will be a shelter to the other. Now we feel no cold, for each of us will be warmth to the other Now there is no loneliness, for each of us will be a companion to the other. We are two bodies, but there is one life before us and one home When evening falls, I’ll look up and there you’ll be. I’ll take your hand: you’ll take mine and we’ll turn together to look at the road we travelled to reach this hour of our happiness. It stretches behind us, even as the future lies ahead. A long and winding road, whose every turning means discovery Old hopes, new laughter, shared fears. The adventure has just begun.
