    Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone
    We joined together to become one
    My missing rib was made into perfection
    For together we are simple completion

    God saw the potential to be a great king inside of me
    So my love I step up to be what He called me to be
    In being King I know how to let you reign as the queen
    For I've learned a soft hand is all that is needed to reign

    Sometimes I didn't live up to my commission
    Taking advantage of your humble submission
    Letting pride make me forget my duty to you
    And the gratitude that is your apparent due

    Forgive me when I think more highly of myself than I ought to
    For I know it was our combined strength that brought us through
    God created you, woman, as my precious anointed help mate
    And I need you to walk in to my destiny, my appointed fate

    So follow me as I follow the man above
    I promise to only lead with hands of love
    For you are more precious than any silver or gold
    And forever I want to have you to cherish and hold

    From this day forth, I truly promise to be a better man
    The one that was designed by God in his perfect plan
    A better son, friend, father, brother, and husband
    So pray hard for me as I do the best I possibly can

    must admit this is about the most decent piece i've read yet and that's exactly what it sounds like a wedding vowel heard these same words twisted in so many different ways dang wish you would've went crazy out of the ordinary and just said something (like baby let me kiss them thick red lips of yours you'll be real then i would that's a real soul brother speaking right there)

    There is no quest in life more rewarding for a man than that of being a godly committed husband and Father. It is easier said than done, but the rewards are profoundly awesome.

    Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

    Pro 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
    Pro 31:11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
    Pro 31:12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

    3Jn 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
