I shall love you
Like a blazing fire
Warming the chill
Of night air.
And gently
As a mother's touch
When wiping the face
Of her newborn babe.
Loving you is a fortune
To safeguard and protect
With my life.
Your body will yearn
For the tenderness
Of my caress
While the flames
In my heart
Spark your growing passion.
Time will suspend its march
And stand still before you
Until you know how much
I love you.

The Promise
