From Romantic Poetry:

Grow old along with me, The best is yet to be

-Robert Browning-

All the love that history knows Is said to be in every rose, Yet all that could be found in two Is less than what I feel for you.


I love you not only for what you are, But for what I am when I’m with you.

-Elizabeth Barrett Browning-

  • A basket of love and a cradle of kisses, A pocketful of dreams and your most cherished wishes, A rainbow in the sky and gold shining in your heart, With smiles and tears, this is how your marriage starts.
  • A quiet home for rest and a large yard for play, Work that makes you sing, and each other at the end of the day, Family that anchors you and gives you wings to fly, Love that means never having to say goodbye.
