Friday Poems: Apache Wedding Prayer

A very important person from my son's old, wonderful, preschool is getting married tomorrow!

Unfortunately we cannot attend, but our hearts are with E&W as they join their lives and celebrate their love. I'd like to dedicate Friday Poems to them today with a verse we used in our own wedding ceremony.

Apache Wedding Prayer

Now you feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now there is no more loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.

Now you are two bodies,
But there is one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place,
To enter into the days of your togetherness.
And may your days be long and good upon the earth.

Many congratulations to you both! 
Don't forget to eat on your wedding day!

Love, the Js
