The air teems
The clouds fill
The rain falls
     it's very rhythm whispering the promise

The night dark
The stars twinkle
The moon hidden
     ready to show the depth of the promise

The sun glows
The rays cascade
The wind speaks
     in it's voice the words of the promise

The heart beats
The soul hears
The body feels
     the promise of you

Searching for a heart to call my home
So glad that I found it in your own
The promise of love
     The promise of life
          The promise of joy
               The promise. . . of you. . .

Sven....when it comes to weaving the words you are one of the masters I think.

 God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown

This very soft and romantic Sven.  After such a beautiful poem I would certainly make her keep her promise.  After all......
A promise, is a promise.

Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

Nice poem, Sven.  Isn't it also a song?  Perhaps you had some inspiration on this one...

Great writing...

Thank you all. . .

Insect, thank you for your poetic response

vandana, I like reading your work also!

LW, yes it is, but if you listen to it, you'll find that it has very little to do with this. . .

Isis, thank you my friend. . .  

Tracie, thank you for your wonderful thought. . . and I am lucky to have friends like you and everyone here at Passions. . .
