Promises

In countless dreams, I've had you near;
Held your hand, away from fear.
You killed the pain that I couldn't cure,
And together fore'er we'll endure.

Through whate'er life will have us bear,
All the while not stopping to care.
We'll make it thru the nightmare
Of a life that isn't always fair.

Kill the demons that wish to impart
Anger and hate to keep us apart.
I promise always with a loving heart,
I'll turn our love into living art.

Comparable to the likes of Da Vinci;
In all his glory, and with poetry,
Carve our name amongst the history
Of great lovers, and the tragedy

That befell them all and had them fall -
Only to rise again to answer the call
Of true love, and in a world so small,
I know you and I, we can stand tall.

'Cause you give a fix, an insatiable bliss;
A rush of blood that I'd always miss.
On the day we had our first lil' kiss,
You saved me from the eternal abyss

That raged within me, knew no bounds,
Where life was all sadness and frowns.
Been there, done that, made the rounds,
And yes everyone has ups and downs,

But I was down and out, couldn't get up.
All that changed, when you showed up -
I saw hope and a real reason to get up
And to tell myself, "I've had enough!"

I'm alive and living now thanks to you,
I can look forward to something new;
A chance to believe in something true,
Other than the lies of the world I knew.

So don't ever go and leave me standing,
We'll work thru the pain and misunderstanding
That always comes when you're falling
In love with someone so worth loving!

I usually like rhyming when it comes to poetry... when I do want to express myself more freely, I write an article, a short story or something... watch this space!
