Wedding vows

I respect a promise as an unbreakable truth.I think of it as the rings we will wear. 

A promise encircles and binds us both, with no beginning, middle or end. 

So I promise to be accountable for my own happiness; there will be challenges and trials ahead,
but I ask for us to share the burdens, celebrate our successes and learn from our mistakes. 

I promise to practise the virtues of patience, tolerance, forgiveness, and understanding often laid
waste in the world we live. 

I promise a labyrinthine love without complacency, already taken root in a foundation we have built
through weathers fair and foul. 

When I experience something new, I want you to be there with me. 

I promise my life with you, for you, and only you.

A man who is trying to find a place in the world of today, and daring to hope there is work out there to energise and fulfil. I have a lot of life experiences and reflections to share, from a rather neurotic, self doubting perspective(!)
