Today we pay homage, my friend, to our story,
to our love and all it's glory.
Who would've thought that our love kindled from mateship,
devoid of heirs and graces,
could transport us to so many unforeseen places?
Places of unbridled joy and pain,
together we have chartered the terrain.
With you, life's moments are enveloped in our love, my friend.
Thank goodness for the night when our love realised itself
in an unguarded moment, you saw my true self.
In freedom where our love could be naked and free, you found me.
This marked the beginning of my life with you,
and suddenly it meant more to be and do.
Then our love became a family,
with the arrival of our beautiful Kaiya and Amelie.
Our home of hearts created by our love, my friend.
Our love is a place for us, rich and overﬂowing
when embodied in the knowing,
that life is enriched by our love, my friend.
forever yours, forever mine
today I promise to cherish you for all of time,
enveloped in, enriched by, our love, my friend.
for Adele and Gill
The bond between lovers resonates with the essence of two hearts
drawn to each other by a force greater than themselves
born of a mysterious alchemy
orchestrates a dance of love
Its ebbs and flows
leave imprints on their landscapes
illuminating all that they are
forming a new place to call home
When harnessed well
this cosmic force forms a masterpiece
woven with the loom of life
unique and ever changing
A work to be cherished
