This is for Nate and Lauren.  This is for Lauren and Nate.  It is my honor and privilege to witness your marriage.

I am privileged
To witness
The wedding of a couple
Who have thought through
And executed
More particulars
Than most every couple
I have known.
Today I will offer some words
But I know
No mere words
Will cover it.
Today I will sign
The certificate
And mail it off
To the State,
The certificate
Won’t cover it either.
Today it will take
All of us
To witness,
All of us,
All the promises
We can make
And then some,
And then some more.
