As we stand be­side the ocean tide, may our love al­ways be as
con­stant and un­chang­ing as these nev­er-end­ing waves that pour
be­neath our feet, flow­ing end­less­ly from the depths of the sea; your love
came soft­ly up­on my heart, just as the foam comes soft­ly up­on the
sand, and just as there will nev­er be a morn­ing with­out the ocean’s flow,
so there will nev­er be a day with­out my love for you. I pledge my­self to
you this day Our love will be as un­chang­ing and de­pend­able as the tide;
as these wa­ters nour­ish the earth and sus­tain life, may my con­stant devotion
nour­ish and sus­tain you un­til the end of time.
