Bits of a real wedding...




I love you,
Not only for what you are
But for what I am
When I am with you.
I love you
Not only for what
You have made of yourself

But for what
You are making of me.
I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;

I love you
For, putting your hand
Into my heaped—up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help

Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.
I love you because you...
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life

Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.
I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good

And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.
You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.

Perhaps that is what
Love means,
After all.
