Ceremony Reading Inspiration: Our Souls Are Mirrors

With three poetry books under her belt, Canadian poet and illustrator rupi kaur has multiple poems to choose from. We absolutely love Our Souls Are Mirrors, which capture the combining of two in marriage perfectly!

Our Souls Are Mirrors by Rupi Kaur

god must have kneaded you and i
from the same dough
rolled us out as one on the baking sheet
must have suddenly realized
how unfair it was
to put that much magic in one person
and sadly split that dough in two
how else is it that
when i look in the mirror
i am looking at you
when you breathe
my own lungs fill with air
that we just met but we
have known each other our whole lives
if we were not made as one to begin with
