The Promise.


 

I promised myself to you

For a life spent, I and thou.

I promised you my honor

In deep reverence for the Lord.

.

Committed to my promise

But, not really knowing how

To keep this promised promise

And, to be of one accord

.

I knelt before a witness

Made a promise keeping vow

And, for my one kept promise

I was promised a reward.

.

So, I will keep my promise

Although life with me is fraught

I’m in this thing to win it

Whether you like it or not.

.
