This Ring


I found comfort with this ring,
Peace as I hear my soul sings;
An eternity of song for you and I,
Every time I feel you nearby.

Nothing compares to how much,
I get electrified by a single touch;
Even when you are not around,
You are in this ring to I am bound.

This ring is my profession of our love,
This ring is my protection from above,
I commit to you again as a year's past;
Vow to you and God, assured to last.

… with this ring.

There is pleasure when we trust,
Being together in prayer saved us;
So overblessed for you to be mine,
A rib only God set out for me to find.

The favor of God covers us both,
Through journeys of marital growth;
We are rejoice today without cursory,
Because God gave us an anniversary.


This ring is my profession of our love,
This ring is my protection from above,
I commit to you again as a year's past;
Vow to you and God, assured to last.

… with this ring.

Happy Anniversary.
