Kahlil Gibran Reading

Today Gordon received a quote from a friend that was a Kahlil Gibran quote. James and I had this poem read at our wedding. One of my dearest friends in the world, Janet Ivey read it to us at one of our wedding showers, and we both loved it. So then we asked her to read it in the wedding.

I just love this passage, so I wanted to share it with you all. Enjoy.

On Marriage
Kahlil Gibran

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.


Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.


Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

Everyone at our bowling alley/laudrymat/bodywash voted that our favorite quote is "fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup" ... we think that means our moon will shine twice as far : )
