A Promise to Keep.

When her eyes search for you in the crowd

When she squeezes your hand saying you make her proud

When she stays quiet, while she longs to speak

Remember Man, you have a Promise to keep.

When she stays awake until you’re tucked in bed

When she runs her fingers, caressing the hair on your head

When she sheds tears; while you call her a sentimental fool

When her hugs feel warmer, than the most expensive wool

When she says you are the last thought before she sleeps

Remember Man, you have a Promise to keep.

Don’t promise her the stars, nor the moon,

But make sure you check on her, whether dawn, dusk or noon

Don’t promise her with quotes, once quoted by the wise,

While your actions will speak otherwise.

If she is your silent support, when the path is steep

Remember Man, you have a Promise to keep.

Don’t fix her problems, but make sure she isn’t facing them alone,

She can mold some love, into the heart of a stone.

And when she walks a thousand miles with you

Make sure with her you walk back

For the woman will fill in all the gaps

And compensate with love for all that you lack

Promise her now and keep it together

Promise her for now, you may not have forever

For when you love, make sure to love her deep

Remember Man, you have a Promise to keep.
