My Promise (poem)

Updated on August 26, 2012

My dear my love my world my precious soul

Please take my hand that I may bless your life

And be your shield for any future strife

To be that piece of life that makes you whole


That every day you walk through will be bliss

And all your needs I’ll meet to see you smile

An at your feet such wonders I’ll compile

Your dream your heaven paradise my this


But though I dream alas I’m just a man

A man whose dream right now holds only you

Tomorrow’s dream may change oh yes it’s true

But for this dream I’ll do what legends can


All this I wish plus love that will not die

But I can only promise this I’ll try

      Ahh, my heart flutters :-) I had to read it twice. You put me in the mind of William Blake. So lovely. Thank you.

      How romantic and I'm relieved to know that you know it's just a dream! lol Seriously, though, the sentiment is very heart-felt.
