Now you will feel no rain
For each of you will be shelter for the other
Now you will feel no cold
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there will be no loneliness
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two individual people
But there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both in your journey ahead
And through all the years
May happiness be your constant companion
And your days together be good and long,
Upon this beautiful earth.
