A Poet's Wedding Vow
Author: Joseph Ogbonna
As we begin a journey so uncertain,
you and I made one in a World of ours,
our thoughts and emotions to share,
our pleasant moments together to cherish,
and our pains and sorrows to endure.
I pledge my unflinching loyalty to you
this day, and for the rest of my life,
by taking an oath of fidelity to make
our uncertain journey certain.
I vow before you and God Almighty
to be there for you in times of need,
in times of want, in times of Joy,
in times of bliss and in times of
I vow to nourish and to nurture,
your mortal body and Soul,
to share my infinite possessions with you,
and to bequeath them at my demise to you.
I solemnly promise to cast my hopeful sunbeam
to dry up your emotional eye fluid in your
moments of grief.
Every thought of thee gives me health,
and a minute with thee is truly a lifetime to
Nothing else shall separate us both save death.
May Heaven grant its consent to our eternal

A wedding vow I made to my wife, Chizzie
