A Promise

January 9, 2012

Not a dozen roses or a box of chocolates.

I give you a ring.
It is a circle of promise.
It promises unconditional love for you
Like the love of a fifty year old marriage.

It will make you smile constantly
Like you’re always on camera.
It will make you look at life
A little brighter.

I am trying to be lovable.

Not a new car or a new house.

I give you a ring.
Its tight hold will stay on your finger forever,
Shining and powerful.
As we are,
For as long as we are.

Take it.
Its more than just a choice,
If you like.
Its scent will cling to your fingers,
Cling to your heart.
