Marriage


 Marriage

The gentle comfort of living together

 The bond of love

Like the river meeting the sea

 It is a fusion of two minds and two bodies

 For the sprouting of a new life

 It is the approval

 It is a link for the glorious relationship

 between two families

The blessing of the elders and the prayer of the youngsters

 Is the protective armour in a marriage

 In the clay lamp of cooperation

 Pouring the oil of sacrifice

Soaking the wicks of love in the oil

 And lighting the lamp of trust

 The life glitters

.......
