I know some that some words are just a rhyme
That vows are just words for the moment in time
Said for a ceremony that many will attend
Then put in a scrapbook so they won’t bend.
“I take you whoever, to have and to hold”
Well at least until I think we’re too old
“From this day forward” seem a likely point
But then they can’t wait to get out of the joint.
“For richer, for poorer, in sickness or health”
Didn’t mean all you looked for was someones wealth
Then to the hard parts of “To love, honor and obey”
Those to many are just words they are forced to say.
Then comes the part that seems to separate many
What was started in love gone like the flip of a penny
They get to point of repeating the words “‘Til death do us part”
A few months later they wonder when that is going to start.
They say that youth is wasted on the young
But at any age those vows seem to be sung
I believe too many have forgotten their intent
To stay with someone special until their lives are spent.
