These I Can Promise – wedding reading

i can promise - ceremony readingThese I Can Promise

I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;

I cannot promise you riches, wealth or gold;

I cannot promise you an easy pathway That leads away from change or growing old.

But I can promise all my heart’s devotion;

A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow.

A love that’s true and ever growing;

A hand to hold in your’s through each tomorrow.

Mark Twain (1835 – 1910)
