Yesterday I wrote about the author’s thoughts on ‘Love.’
Today someone asked, “And what of Marriage?”
He answered you were born together, and together you shall be for evermore.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
This is about marriage.
Will be continued 🙂
