Grab hold! You're on the threshold of
A wedding on this day of love!
A splendid life made just for two -
A life for soul mates just like you.
A day for Valentines to say
Forever vows! You're on your way.
But even if joy fills your heart,
From now on, you must do your part. . .
For things of value are not free.
You must be working constantly
At doing all the things you know
Are vital for your love to grow.
Your wedded bliss is up to you.
There’s more to it than just “I do.”
Grab hold! You’re on the threshold of
A splendid life. Fate’s brought you love!
