The Promise


They are only words spoken from the mouth
Consonants, vowels, and various sounds

Their significance can be minute or grand
Depending on outlook and where one stands

Along the journey there may be potholes
So endurance must settle deeply in the souls
For as time passes and age becomes clearer
The bond that has formed becomes even dearer

I take you to be my lawfully wedded husband,
To have and to hold, from this day forward,
For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,
In sickness and in health, until death do us part

I would say these words again without hesitation
Because he is my breath in all creation

(Today is our 28th wedding anniversary) ♥ ♥ ♥

Promises – Acrostic











Poetic words slide from your lips, so tenderly, as they

Rest in my heart, softened and beating contentedly

Oh, you need not say more, for you’ve already

Mesmerized my soul to its very core and

I shall guard your love eternally, for

Surely, you can see the same

Emotions in my eyes,
