What God Has Joined

 It is a great and solemn thing to say to another human soul:

“In this one life that we have to live, we will share all things temporal and spiritual. Your joys shall be my joys. Your sorrows shall be my sorrows. In absence you shall yet be near. You shall never be so far from me but that I can hear your voice in the twilight and in the night season. Though land and sea divide us, you shall walk by my side and kneel with me in prayer: still I feel the touch of your hand and rejoice in your sympathy. Your letters shall make me strong and glad. Of you, I am not afraid. With you, I need not be too greatly reserved. With you I may laugh: with you I may shed tears and not be ashamed.”
