Promises from the Heart
by Jeb Bensing
I never thought that another soul can touch my own.
The day will not be complete without saying I love you.
Our day will not be done till we spend quality time together.
There is joy in knowing that our days will be forever.
Your actions speak those words I long to hear –
So sweet upon my ears.
Knowing that you will love me for many years.
These simple words will carry your soul.
Knowing that I will be there no matter where you go.
Even after we are apart,
I will be with you closer than the time we were from the start.
Promises are made between us both,
We honestly decided to take that oath.
The trick was having everything else continue to grow.
Learning all there is to know.
Maintaining our original goal,
Loving one another from heart to Soul.
People can grow apart.
Love can still dwindle and break.
Like the thin ice on a lake,
A heart can splinter due to the heavy weight.
The day you left,
My heart was crushed.
I never thought this is how we would end up.
You had your reasons only you could justify.
My reasons did not include hearing you say goodbye.
The wind may blow,
The snow will fall,
Love will still flourish through it all.
Realization in one’s mind,
I will love you forever and a day –
Even though you went away.

We should always look within ourselves to see fully with our entire heart. Within each person, there should always be that faith in love. You can only love others, if you truly love yourself first.

During my youth, my friend lived in this creepy old house down the street. All the other friends and I would tell stories while trying to scare each other. This is one of my stories to share with you.
