Here is a very simple poem I wrote a very long time ago.
I promise not to freak out when you least expect it,
I promise not to invade your privacy as such.
I promise not to come over unless you meant it,
When you invited me, which doesn’t happen much.
I promise to try to be saner
For both our sakes.
As this world becomes insaner,
We are bound to make mistakes.
I promise to do whatever pleases you
Whenever I can
And you haven’t a clue
The limits that love imposes on man…
I promise to be there
A smile, my open arms
Giving you care
With no hesitation, no qualms.
I promise to try, be a better individual
For your sake and mine
Fidelity, sincerity, no longer virtual
Ever-present integrity as our lives intertwine.
This promise, clearly, shall always prevail
For if ever broken, our love shall fail.
