Poems/ readings for Weddings

There are two births

The one – when light first strikes

The new awakened sense

The other – when two souls unite

And we must count our life from thence

When vows are taken by me and you

Then both of us are born anew

This moment will not come again

As we stand silent and yet aware

Our course is set – ahead we face

The journey that is ours to share

Apache Blessing


May the sun bring you new energy by day;

May the moon softly restore you by night,

May the rain wash away your worries

And the breeze blow new strength into your being.

All the days of your life may you walk gently

Through the world and know its beauty.

Now you will feel no rain,

For each of you will be the shelter to the other

Now you will feel no cold,

For each of you will be the warmth to the other,

Now there is no loneliness for you,

Now you are two persons,

But there are three lives before you.

His life, her life, and your life together.

May beauty surround you both

In the journey ahead and through the long years.

May happiness be your companion

To the place where the river meets the sun.

Go now to your dwelling place

To enter into the days of your togetherness,

And may your days be good and long upon this earth.
