This is a second marriage for us both,
And yet we are the soul mates of our lives.
Sometimes it's a while till love arrives,
Though we may watch it sail along the coast.

Sometimes we fail to understand that pain
Can be a journey to a sunlit shore.
We never know what suffering is for,
Or when we lose, what treasures we might gain.

And so I'm grateful now that I am free
To join my life with yours. I would not change
One moment of my past, or rearrange
The shining chain that brings your love to me.
