Love speaks as we give it voice, and lives as we have either kept our promise or failed to remember all we said and hoped love could be

(Love Sonnet)... I want to make a promise
****************************

For all so many reasons
More and more ... each day
For every tear ....
Or broken heart
Every hurt that came your way

I want to make a promise
And tell you I love you
With words that say
You're everything ....
Please let me say to you ...

(Chorus)
Your laughter ...in the morning sun
The very moment that life begun
(You're) my delight,God's design
I'll be yours
Will you be ( mine? ) ................

In the minutes, that yet still remain
In every effort done to persuade
A sweet romance
And poems I've read
With all my heart
Yet, once again ......

Let me make a promise
And tell you I love you
With words that say
You're everything ....
Is this all that I can do?

For all so many reasons
Much more than words can say
For every time ....
Love broke your heart
For every rainy day

(Chorus)
Your laughter, in the morning sun
The very moment (that) life begun
(You're) my delight, and God's design
I'll be yours
Will you be (mine?)

( And )If a moment yet remains
In every effort done to persuade
A sweet romance
By candlelight
As music plays
I'll hold you tight

With tenderness
On bended knee
I'll be the man
I said I'd be
I'll make a promise
To be true
My hopes, my dreams,
My life is you ....

So let me make a promise
And tell you I love you
With words that say
You're .... everything ....
Is this all that I can .... do?
