A toast for a friend newly married

May this sunny day be
the floor and not the ceiling
for your happiness.

May the love you receive be
even greater than the
love you deserve.

May the Venn Diagram of
your relationship overlap just enough
to evoke balance but not so much
as to erase your individuality.

May jealousy never arise over
the strikingly handsome blind man
you sometimes drive hither and yon.

May understanding and kindness
be the standard by which
all decisions are made.

May your love inspire
far better poems than this.
