The West Wind blows to the east.
The East Wind blows to the west.
Joined together, they now flow as one,
Our love shall light the candle
To lead to a new life, a life together
And of giving.
A love that gives and a love that takes,
Our love will create new life.
Our love will shelter old life.
Our love will burn during the joy of youth.
Our love will shelter us during the storms of middle life.
Our love will nourish us during the wrinkling of old age.
Our love will strive during the spring of life.
Our love will grow during the winter of life.
To Ayanna and Tendaji,
