The Ring Vow

it only takes one anchor to hold a boat
One candle to light a room 

One spring to start a river

One voice to sing a song 

This ring is a foolish gesture

Which will one day constrict your hand

This ring is a token

Of all the tragedy and light we 

Will make together

All vows are binding before 

The Lord, my dear

Not because you are pretty 

Not because I am good

But because these words will always be

Our aboriginal children

Dare you

To return them whole

To their original Owner.
