No earthly church has ever blessed our union
No state has ever granted us permission
No family bond has ever made us two
No company has ever earned commission
No debt was paid no dowry to be gained
No treaty over border land or power
No semblance of the world outside remained
To stain the beauty of this nuptial hour
The secret marriage vow is never spoken
The secret marriage never can be broken
~Sting (from “Nothing Like the Sun”)
This song has been haunting me for the last week; it and I go way back.
Listen here. Bring Kleenex if so inclined.
