Youth to Adulthood – Our Marriage

Today we celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. I publish some poetry that was written in the course of our courtship and the wedding ceremony which have never seen publication.

M & L

Together

Together we shall walk the path of matrimony
Your hand in mine and mine in yours
We shall look into each other’s eyes
And we shall be satisfied

Close to my heart you will
Always be
An essential part of my life
I will love you

Hard and happier days
We will jointly confront
Blessed mother of the of my children
You shall be

A home we shall build
With the Almighty’s help
And together the Divine
Will make us perfect partners
(5/13/89)

Let us…

Let us pray together
Think together
Hope together
In order to
Stay together
(11/26/90)

Let’s pray…

Let’s pray for each other
Think about each other
Help each other
Care for each other
Love each other
So that we’ll build
Our future in Jesus
Together
(11/26/90)

Sun

May the freshness of
Each new day
Lead us to a re-commitment
Of our love for each other

May the rising of the Sun
Give us a gentle recollection
Of the joys and hopes
We share with each other

May the setting of the Sun
Remind us also that in loving
We share difficulties
And sorrows too
All embodied in the wonder
Of one full day
(11/27/90)

My beloved

My beloved
You are mine
And I am yours
Altogether
We are for each other

On the road to
The altar we walk
Together
Patiently taking the
Path the Almighty
Is marking out
For us
Which leads
To the final day
I’m in love with
You
And it will be for life
(1/12/91)

The road

Praying, counseling
Preparing, planning
And so on
Familiar landmarks
On the road
To I do

Anxieties and problems
Poke their undesired
Heads into the affair
Our trust and confidence
In the Director of nuptials
Will see us through
(1/12/91)

Mart & Liz

Ah ! What is this?
What is this I see?
Oh!
What a beautiful sight!
Who are these sitting there
So gracefully
So gorgeously?

Do you want to know?
Ah yes I’ll tell you
It’s the
Young and youthful
Buoyant and beautiful
Vibrant and vivacious
Mart and Liz
Mr and Mrs Obeng

The glory of matrimony begins
To shine on them
A life-long journey has just began
So let us all then
Each with a prayer in the heart
Send them on this glorious trip
And wish them
A happy wedlock
(5/16/92)
