Unbroken (a Wedding Poem)

How long this oath? We do not know
When death this troth shall sever
From this day forth, but this we know
In life it is forever

What God has joined no flesh can part
Or draw its bonds asunder
Husband and wife, joined hand and heart
Pure, immaculate wonder

For better, worse, in sickness, health
To reverence, honor, cherish
To keep these vows above all else
And never let love perish

For love is life’s most sacred trust
Its charge, faithful and tender
To always put the other first
Proving its holy splendor

From this day forth and for all life
This pledge will be a token
Of love forever; husband, wife
Until death parts, unbroken
