Accidental Poet

The Promise

The Promise


In the deepest part of me

Is the deepest part of you

For you’re my inspiration

My passion so true


When I’m at my very best

You’re there in every line

The music from my heart

You’re the maestro so fine


I remember you

Back in the day

When we were both so young

And you stole my heart that way


Upon the road of love

I followed the signs

You bring out in me my best

A passion of lyric and rhyme


For a man to write

Poems of love

To put everything else aside

To expose himself there of


Love to this degree

Will pass the test of time

And you’re the soul reason

It lives in the heart of mine


I don’t know where you are now

But you’ve always been in my life

No one could hold a candle next to you

My heart’s one and only wife


To you Sharon and myself

I made a promise easy to keep

I told you I’d always love you

This pact of love I speak

        Thanks Andy. I don't mean to be repetitious in writing of Sharon, but I will admit it is my strongest vice.

          There is nothing repetitive on writing about the one you love, it just shows how much you love her and you just cannot get her off your mind - it is wonderful.

                Thanks Mary. Although I wish I could say she's my wife, I've not seen her since we were both 14 years old. She had to move away in 1971 from Massachusetts to LA, California.
