I promise you...

I will love you,
as long as there is blue in the sky,
ink in my pen,
and salt in the sea,
As long as there is warmth from the sun
and violets are blue;
I will still love you

I will love you for as long as,
There is a God who is benevolent with time,
A God who defends us from harm,
A God who keeps the air in our lungs,
The rhythm of our hearts,
and an inherent sense of human being.
I will love you; still

I will love you for as long as,
its realistic,
For my entire lifetime,
and maybe a year after I die,
whenever that'll be,
Visit you occasionally in your dreams,
So don't you go seeing a shrink,
This will stop as soon as you replace me.

I will wait for you in the after-life,
Hope you'll follow me soon enough,
before all we had is blown by the wind,
but for as long as there is time,
I will love you; still

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
