I can’t promise you love
I don’t know what that is.
But what I can promise is,
I promise to keep the smile on your lips
Drawn all the way back to your cheeks.
I promise to keep your pillow dry
And no tear storms in your eye.
I promise to take you out
And make you dance in the sun like you ought.
I promise to chase you in the rain
And have fun like a little pretty babe.
I promise to shield pain from you
And knock back the sorrow bearing ewe.
I promise to hold your hand all through
And be your guide in the darkest alley.
I promise to put meals on your table
And not hard truths for you to swallow.
Come to think of it,
I just promised you love.🌹
