I am yours and you are mine,
grown together on the vine
of life and love and days well spent,
formed and fed by blessings sent:
Sun and rain in heaven’s measure,
elements of pain and pleasure,
rising up and reaching down,
seeking sky and breaking ground.
Give and take, bitter and sweet,
nature paints a work complete.
Opposition yields the force…
turns our leaves toward the Source.
Holding fast to God’s own vine,
I am yours and you are mine.

“Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.”
