A timeless piece and an attempt to make a classic prose for valentines and beyond about wedding ring tale.


“With this ring I thee wed, with my body I thee worship, and with all my worldly goods I thee endow”
-Book of Common Prayer quotes”

"wear it..."

Tale of the Two Wedding Rings

After decades but not an eon hence,
I have a tale of a Man wanted his woman exclusive to his arm
Looking for a token of an everlasting bond
To symbolize more than duties to God,
Kings and law of men

One day, months before planned wedding
This man dug some jewelry on their heirlooms
under the lit of slowly melting candle wax
and a mind fixed to his waiting bride

A broken ring and earrings touches his skin
A serendipity set to happen,
From the dust of time, memories surely unraveled

The next morning
He asked his mother about the thing he'd found
if which he intend to recycle thru a smith
and from those he'll have a ring of their own
As new little bands of matrimonial

" That pieces of gold you have discovered
Is from my youth and also from my mother
The man was astonished hearing the story unfolding
"She gave that to me as unconditional love
that never gives up hope or faith in my own future
Then she asked "What can you pledge to her?"

Clenching it to his hand he said
"A commitment and as special bond
For our loyalty and let others know
we are taken from the day we will wear it
to every day we can

"true equal.."

The aging mom paused and asked more
"Is that all? "And he was perplexed
" Remember, where that jewelry came from,
two pieces intended for two index finger
His son can not quench a riddle of a message
she wanted heartily imparted.

"The earring came from my ears and should both your own
As watchful eyes on your every deeds and intentions.
The old ring, being broken should not be hindrance
To look on her shortcomings and even your own weakness,
It's bound to bridge what is lacking in your characters.
It's a shadow you can follow
to return home not to go astray,
and a smile to greet you when the other is afar.
A companion to remember that not one
had abandoned you in any moment of despair.
Its meant to be paired,
Like day is to the night
Not opposite fellows but to be united
in very chance both hands will meet
as true equal halves from the time
you committed to the last day of your lives

"two souls.."

Enlighten, the man continued
"My apology to take loosely the eternal virtue
And daily commitment that seems untrue
I will care the one heart that will wear it
and the two souls it will be created.
The two rings you will eventually see
will forge two families to unity
In every season it's destined to endure
for our dreams in every minutes of our days
Remembering every moment to make it as our last

And so, on the wedding date that was set upon
The two golden ring was made
Without question of its value
As continuity of the devotion they found
For the bride and groom to say they "DO"
As fate would be with them
For one and everlasting love.
