A Song of Love and Promise

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

a-song-of-love-and-promise

Promise me you’ll stay for a lifetime

and love me with passion,

promise me to always be true -

never make me blue.


Give me your love every day,

as the sun rises and sets,

because life’s so very short,

hand in hand throughout the days.


Promise me that you’ll be there smiling in the mornings,

holding me tight when night falls,

promise me that your smile will guide me,

by my side, you’ll always be.


Promise to hold my hand,

as we walk down life’s treacherous byway.

Never let me fall,

promise me you’ll hold me as tears course down my cheeks,

kiss all my fears away.

Promise me you’ll give your sweet love,

as the curtain of darkness falls upon each day,

promise me that it will be you -

who’ll love me till the end of time.



Give me your love every day,

as the sun rises and sets,

because life’s so very short

and every moment’s a golden memory.

Truly loving promises and a great romantic song. That song of the righteous brothers is still awesome today!

Thank you, Chris.

Thank you, Bill.

Yes, I agree that can indeed be a challenge - to catch ThreeKeys.

Ahhhh...so many promises...security and assuredness...heaven sent and a challenge to catch.

But to catch, is life's challenge.

Darn pretty, Rasma!

Wow, Rasma, straight from the heart. A new promise in each verse. Beautiful.
