Dear…

I don’t even know what to call you. But, already, we are beyond such things, aren’t we? When you wander into my head from time to time and form to form I am left with out a course of action. Mostly because action seems… so… very…very… silly. But this time. I took said action. Here it is.

I am sounding this letter off of the sky as postage. I am licking my lips to seal the envelope and throwing my marbles into the sun. I am lifting you, without strings, with the last of my magic.

I am not sure how the universe will choose to eclipse or supernova our meeting. But I am patient. In the mean time, I will remain so.

But I thought you should know.

I promise you passion.
I promise you fire.
I promise you mood swings, and fights, and making up, and making love.

I promise you an insatiable hunger to touch you. Kiss you. Be with you. To a fault if you wish.

I promise you a less than perfect attention. I promise to get too caught up in my vision of you to notice you, from time to time. I promise to notice you, more often than not.

I promise laughing. Together and at each others expense. But laughing. And laughter. And cause for it.

I promise to be serious. And scowl. And furrow my brow and nod my head at just the right times.

I promise to picture you naked at the most inappropriate times. I promise to paint pictures of your smile on the back of my eyelids while I sleep. I promise to sleep next to you, feeling my body scorch as our temperatures press together in red patches of skin.

I promise you poetry. And wine. And both at once.

I promise you adventure. I promise you distant landscapes and matching our rhythm to the train we find ourselves in, watching the blue, gray, and green streak by our window like an exercise in futility and motion.

I promise you futility and motion.

I promise you faith. I promise you doubt. I promise you a clenched fist and an open hand. I promise you my shoulders to stand on and my frame to drink from. I promise you holding hands on midnight drives from place to place.

I promise you silly.

I promise you gifts and flowers for no reason. I promise you a constant reminder of my awareness of the gift of a woman that I have been blessed with.

I promise you breakfast in bed. I promise you all day in bed.

I promise you discipline. And craft. And becoming a master of loving you.

I promise you truth. And empty promise. I promise you the promise of more.

I promise to be artful. I promise to be delicate. I promise to be crass and a brute. I promise to regret what I have said, over and over. I promise you steadfastness through the changes as we learn to navigate the many tides of the sea we find ourselves drowning in together.

I promise to be your opposite and drive you mad. I promise to be your equal and touch you thusly.

And you. I promise to only allow you entry to my heart if you are what I know I want.

I am faithful. I am loyal. I will not fill your space with less than you.

And I’ll only ask that you be worthy of this.

And here is something shiny.
And red.
For you.
To wear.
As your own.

It is all I have.

My return address is on my palm, out stretched to you. I await the scent of perfume on the letter you will write in me.

Red and Shiny.
And worthy.

All My Love,
Sean
I promise to be confident
I promise to be true
I promise to not be so ******* myself
I promise to start new
I promise to not call myself ugly
I promise to not fall apart
I promise to cry when I’m happy
I promise to be strong
I promise to not be selfish
I promise to be myself
I promise to be my own kind of beautiful
I promise not to be jealous of anyone else
I promise to always smile
I promise to be sweet
I promise to make good decisions
I promise to be healthy
I promise to always hope
I promise to not give up
I promise to be a good friend
I promise to not call myself a **** up
I promise to be honest
I promise to shine
I promise to fight to the end
I promise to protect what’s mine
I promise to not call myself fat
I promise to just relax
I promise to believe in myself
I promise to ignore what’s being said behind my back
I promise to do my best
I promise to love unconditionally
I promise to live like there is no tomorrow
I promise to not give up on me

If I ever get the chance to love you forever I promise you I will do it to my greatest capacity. I promise to listen to you when you get so invested in conversation you ramble for hours. I promise to accept you when you're being stubborn, and fight you when you're wrong. I promise to learn how to make your favourite meals from your mother, I know her cooking will always be your favourite. I promise to find every freckle on your body. I will kiss every single one. I promise to always say see you later rather than goodbye. I promise to protect you from heartache to the best of my ability. Actually, I promise to help you through heartache when it comes our way. You'll never be alone. I promise to kiss you when you first wake up even though we both know you get smelly. I promise to be your biggest fan and greatest supporter. I promise to scratch your back and pop your back pimples. I promise to watch your favourite television show even if I could honestly care less. I really don't care about zombies. I promise to never let us become your parents. I promise to never let you be like your father. I promise to never let you be like my father. I promise to be the best mother if you let me. I promise to tuck you in when you're drunk and give you water and Advil when you're hungover. I promise to be your home. I promise to make our house as home-y as possible. I promise to race you up the stairs. I promise to keep myself positive. I promise to let you pick me up when it feels like I can't do it myself. I promise to laugh at your baby photos with your sister and to talk to your father about his hobbies. I promise to make fun of you for being a mama's boy. I promise to love you for it, too. I promise to love you with every bone and muscle in my body. I promise to love you more than I did the day before. I promise to love you and love you and love you and lo

Promises....
I hold u and wonder what
You'll be like when ur old
I can only promise u won't
Go hungry unloved or cold

But I can't promise ur life
Will not have pain or sorrow
But my blood, my liver, or bone
Marrow are all urs to borrow

Lol or keep but I can't promise
Ull feel accepted by peers
Can't promise u happiness
Or that u won't cry tears

I can promise to never
Steal a girl from u
But I can't promise what actions that
Other humans will do

I can promise to leave u money
My assets my ear and shoulder
But I can't promise to teach u much
But the basics when ur older

I can promise to clothe u
Or support u in ur arts
But I can't protect u from betrayal
Or a painful broken heart

I can give u all I have
And teach u all I know
But I don't have all the answers
To questions as u grow

I can't promise we won't fight
Or that u won't hear me cuss too
But I can promise that with all my heart
That I will always love u

I can promise to guide u the best
Way I know how to do
can u accept knowing i dont have to
understand u to love u

I can't promise that the boogeyman
In a way doesn't exist
But I can promise wutever demon
Haunts u, I will help u resist

I can't promise not to
Border being hypocritical to u
But it's only because I have seen what
A life of indulging can do

So I promise that I wont always tell
U wut u wanna hear
But I promise to only give my
Opinion then back off as u steer

Wutever u choose even if
It's not my favorite or i feel its not best
i will still support u if u want *******
to hold tight ur dress

cuz if that's wut u truly want
I will love u all the same
Cause ur my son no matter what u
Do or who it is u became

I promise to respect and remain
The friendship we grow to have
Just promise me you'll sympathize
when im strict ur all that i have

if u need someone to talk to
dont think u cant tell me ur sins
cause my love for u never ends like
a circle so dont keep me from things

in your life so i can help cuz
U were the one who saved my life
If ur life was an event on Facebook
I'd hit going! Comment and "like"

see how much I love u tyke?
so much I'd use a cheesy example to
Explain myself, cause looking dumb
Means nothing if it's for u

Cause I'll be the next John Q
I'd do whatever it takes
Cause that I can promise
But some things are not made

For me to be in control of and some
things are out of ur control too
But for what I can't promise I can
Promise I'll be there for u through

The pain it will bring,
And when my opera fat lady sings
I will die happy knowing I got to
Experience the most greatest thing

Which is being ur father
Cause it proved to all those that think
I wasn't capable of greatness
wrong Cause ur the greatest thing

I've ever done or I'll ever do
Next to being there for u
And I promise to do all I can do
If its possible to promise it to u

Promise to be honest with u
And to accept what I don't like
Cause in the end I'll love and support
Anything u chose to do in life

...I love u Juju
I Promise this is the last time
I Promise this trash bag isn't filed with empty beer cans and
I Promise this stain on my sheets is something healing like apple juice.

I Promise I woke up before noon today
I Promise I wasn't awake waiting wanting to hear from you
I Promise I am not writing about you again.

I Promise today I woke up stronger than when fell asleep
I Promise today the sun reminded me of a safe place and not of the sun we sat under when you said "this isn't the same anymore"
I Promise today I am getting better.

I Promise you I am trying
I Promise you your name doesn't taste like vinegar
I Promise you weren't the only reason I was breathing.

I Promise my parents didn't pay for bail for a drunk and disorderly
I Promise my eyes don't feel like Velcro stuck together when I shut them
I Promise these words are sincere.


I Promise there aren't pins and needles sewing me together
I Promise there is time left for me
I Promise there is love in my heart and I remember what that feels like.

I Promise.

But when you said "I Promise" I Promise you were lying.
If you meant what you said
Then these promises would be true,
But they're not.

I Promise this isn't a goodbye letter.

I promise you a love that never dies. A love as real as a rose freshly blooming in the spring, a love that stays as beautiful as the fake bouquet in the window pane of your mother’s kitchen.
I promise you minimal space between our skin, I promise you undying sparks when our lips enfold like pages of romance novels.
I promise a smile that medicates to the pain you feel in your heart, I promise eyes that can identify where your suffering is making home.
I promise words as powerful as eviction notices on the door of your mind, I promise to never stop rolling them off my tongue until the demons make their way out.
I promise to open the curtains just enough for the rays of the morning sun to kiss your bare back. I promise to close them at night and hold you till you feel comfortable in the silence and darkness.
I promise to whisper my love into your ears so you can always fall asleep to the sound of truth.
I promise you days where we stay inside and listen to the rain slide down the glass windows. I promise to stay when the ground dries up. I promise to never make you feel the way your father did, I promise to always remind you that your worth is amplified in my eyes.
I promise so many things, but mainly to love as though it’s the only thing I am capable of doing.
I promise to love you till our skin cracks and our bones turn to dust. I promise to love you when the singing of church bells marks our departure.
I promise to love you when our home changes from brick walls, to mounds of soil.
I promise to love you as long as I am alive and ever after.
May E V Watson Nov 2014
i promise you know me the most
i promise you'll watch it all up close.
i promise you'll see a side of me ill never show.
i promise you'll see my eyes full of sympathy for a world that wants me
on my knees.
i promise even if i can barely stand ill find you a place to land.
i promise ill find a remedy for this world that'll hang me by the rope.
i promise when the leaves are falling faster i will find you a happy ever after.
i promise to try and give hope through my endeavors.
i promise if there was nothing wrong there'd be nothing right.
i promise when the quire sings and church-bells ring ill forgive the
wrongs they did.
i promise ill hold their hands
i promise ill take their swords
i promise ill be their shield
i promise ill watch them
i promise ill guide them
i promise ill protect them
i promise as i have all along
i promise to love them.
i promise by my friend GreeSeyl, he is unable to post much of his things himself so i am doing so for him.

My Promise to My Soldier
I promise to be there for you always
Whenever you need a helping hand
I promise to think about you daily
Wherever you are away
I promise to never let you down
No matter what we go through
I promise to keep you in my prayers
So that God may keep you safe
I promise to be here when you return
I will be there waiting
I promise to be your support
When you need it most
I promise to help you through the tough times
Even though it will hurt me
I promise to be here for you when you are in pain
Even though it will pain me too
I promise to support you in any decisions you may make
No matter what they are
I promise to be there for you when decisions need to be made
Even though it will **** me to watch you leave
I promise I will be there to say goodbye
When you leave
I promise to be there to say hello again
When you return home to me
I promise to love you forever and eternally
No matter what happens or where life takes us
I promise to be loyal to you while you are deployed
Because I know that you will be loyal to me
I promise that no matter where life takes me
It will never take me away from you
I promise to be here forever and always
Trustworthy and in love
Forever and always
I promise.
Isaacc Davis Nov 2019
I made a promise
A promise to myself
A promise to stay
A promise to live
A promise to be OK

I broke that promise
The promise to myself
I tryed to leave
I don't want to be live
I am not OK

I have a promise
A promise to my friends
A promise to stay
A promise to live
A promise to be OK

I still brake that promise
The promies to my friends
I want to leave
I don't want to live
I am not OK

I will never keep the promise
The promise to myself
The promise to my friends
The promise to stay
The promise to live
The promise to be OK

I am here
I live
But I'm not OK
I will never be OK
But that is OK

I promise to take care of you,
I promise to have a clean plate,
I promise to never forget you,
I promise I will never hate,
And even when your set to frustrate,
You must always never ralate,
To others that hate,

I promise I'm gonna make you smile,
I promise I'm gonna make it right,
I promise to stay for a while,
I promise I'll get a glimpse in sight,
Of the past and how it was,
Everything will be alright,

A promise is a promise,
Thats not always kept,
Lied to your founding Fathers,
When you tried to establish you wealth,
I said,
A promise is a promise,
Thats not always kept,
Lied to your founding Fathers,
When you tried to establish you wealth.
Yeah :(

I promise the usual things:
to love you and respect you,
to hold you and want you,
to make you smile
and laugh, and dream.

But I also promise:
to hold your hand
when you are trying
to get something done,
just because.
to kiss you
in the middle of a sentence,
and make you cry with me
when my feelings overwhelm you.

I promise to look at the sky,
and name the stars for you,
I promise to learn you,
I promise to teach you,
share a million little useless facts,
about unimportant things.
I promise to show you,
the simple things that get me going,
like the liveliness in your eyes,
and I promise to remember
your aspirations
and what side of the bed you prefer.

I promise not to get mad
when you forget my birthday,
(I know, you’re not that good at that…
it’s kind of cute),
and I promise to interrupt you
with something I just remembered
from two weeks ago.
I promise to quote random books
and random people,
and maybe they won’t be that random,
if a particular phrase reminds me of you,
of me, of us.

I promise to sing,
maybe just once, to you,
and every day to the scars of our love
(when the time comes).
I promise to give you my all,
and learn how to cook,
and I promise to take a break,
every now and then,
from everything
so we can do silly things.
I promise you the usual things,
to love you and to hold you,
to be as certain of this,
as I am of evolution,
as sure as the roundness of Earth,
as steady as the rhythm of your breath
that night I felt you sleep underneath me.
I promise you myself,
I promise I will be happy for you,
and with you,
and because of you.

And I promise I will finish this someday.

Integrity: adherene to moral principles, honesty..and the quality or condition of being whole..undivided.

Cheating:  to deprive someone of something valuable by use of deceit.

         Most, if not all of us, need, and very much desire physical intimacy (yes, sx).  Can I say sx  on here? ...I'm not sure. Sx is like the greatest thing ever invented. It's right up there with eating and sleeping.  Everybody likes it..everybody wants it. But when someone is in an exclusive relationship with another, married or not, you don't get to have sx with whoever you want anymore. True, everyone makes mistakes sometimes, no one is perfect, and at times we are weak, for one reason or another. But an honorable man or woman...a person with integrity and inner discipline...recovers..and learns from the mistake...and doesn't repeat it.  That is not what cheaters do.  Cheaters are habitual. That means repeat offenders.  Cheaters talk about things like honor and will power and integrity, but they don't practice it in the place it counts the most, with their beloved.  With cheaters, it isn't about a "mistake".... a one time thing they feel horrible about afterward and promise themselves never to repeat.  Cheaters simply don't care. It's not that they don't care about the girlfriend/boyfriend, or fiance or spouse that they have made a promise of committment to. They do care...they just care more about themselves. It is the promise of faithfulness itself that is meaningless to them...it is simply empty of any real sincerity.  But the problem is that the promise is accepted by the loved one as sincere.  That promise is relied upon and as important as though it were tangible.  So irrespective of how much the cheater spits upon the promise everytime he or she cheats...that promise is HOLY.  Yes, that's right..HOLY.  What does that mean...holy?  Like church holy..or holy water holy?  How is a promise holy?  Well, really one could argue that any promise is holy, but how much more so when a person believes and loves and trusts another...putting all of their faith and future hope on a promise of real love and commitment.  That trust and love make the promise holy.  It is not the hollow promise itself, but that loving reliance upon the promise that creates the holiness...the pure beauty of love... and the faith that it is returned exclusively to the beloved.

          The true sadness is that the beloved will eventually find out about the cheater and then the house of cards will come tumbling down.  Not only is the relationship destroyed, but the trust, faith, and love is destroyed as well, and it may be difficult to ever trust again, in any relationship.  Such immense pain can be caused.  It is amazing that cheaters don't seem to care or think about the consequences of these indiscretions.  Do any of them think ahead of time about the people and/or god forbid, children that will be left lying in the wake of their utterly selfish acts?  The people that will be left trying to pick of the pieces of their hearts, and try to rationalize whether anything that they had believed in was actually real.

          The question is, what and who does the cheater value?? What does the cheater respect?  Do they even value their own selves?  Does a person who thinks nothing of cheating on a regular basis, or every chance they get on their loved one value and respect anything?  Clearly there is no respect for the promise made. There is no respect for the one whom the cheater purports to love.  There is no respect for the man or woman the cheater is doing the cheating with...because clearly that person is just being used to fulfill a carnal desire..and arguably the cheater doesn't even respect him or herself, because a person with an inner moral compass respects him or herself enough not to do things that will cause pain to others, especially those who love him or her.

          So maybe the cheater does not have any real understanding of what is holy..the meaning of a promise...an understanding of integrity...of sacrifice...of the pure beauty of love.  If a man or a woman is in a relationship and can't keep their **** legs closed...then that person has no business being in a relationship.  Its just that simple.  You can't have your cake and eat it too, and then want to eat someone else's cake as well.  If you are so selfish and deceitful that you can't be honest and faithful to the one you profess to love...then do that person a favor and either agree with them to have an open relationship, or let them go.  Because the act of cheating is entirely selfish in every way.  Cheaters want the security and benefits of an ongoing relationship with their significant other, and they want to mess around on the side as well because then they have the best of both worlds.

          But you don't have to go to church or believe in any particular religion to know that cheating is wrong.  It is a hurtful despicable act made even more vicious because it is intentional and hurts the person who loves the perpetrator.  How many crimes are like that?  ....the most heinous.

          So, if you are a cheater..don't ever talk about honor and integrity and code of conduct.  You have no right to utter those words.  Because when you live by  principles of ethical behavior, you don't pick and choose when to apply those principles.  You don't decide that they apply in some areas of your life, on some days, but not on others.  Think before you act..think about who will suffer from your actions...think about the destruction you will cause...do not believe that you can get away with it forever, because eventually the law of the universe will catch up to you.  There is retribution for every act in which we inflict pain on another...for every time we make a promise and then break it..whether anyone ever knows about it or not...just some food for thought

Life is hard, but if you’re there…
[Verse 1]
If I wish hard enough, will my dreams come true?
If I waste my life dreaming, will my wishes be real?
If I look at the stars every night, will my plea be heard?
If I kneel down and pray, will help be sent to guide me?
If I beg for a clear path, will someone light my way?
If I lose my way, will you take my hand and help me along the journey?
[Chorus]
Do you promise to stay by my side?
Do you promise to cherish my life?
Do you promise to always support me?
Do you promise to forever love me? Promise?
[Verse 2]
If I start to fall, will you catch me before I land?
If the oceans overflow and flood, will you save me from drowning?
If the clouds start to form, will you shelter me from the storm?
If the walls around me fall down, will you pull me from the rubble?
If life starts to fight back, will you help me win the war?
If society starts to cave in on me, will you help me out of the door?
[Chorus]
Do you promise to stay by my side?
Do you promise to cherish my life?
Do you promise to always support me?
Do you promise to forever love me? Promise?
[Bridge]
When the world seems so bleak, you are the shining star that brings back the light.
When life is dull in black and white, you are the rainbow that colours my sight.
[Chorus]
Do you promise to stay by my side?
Do you promise to cherish my life?
Do you promise to always support me?
Do you promise to forever love me? Promise?
[Spoken]
Do you promise? Forever?
this is actually a song but my friend suggested i put it on here anyway

I promise not to cry
I promise not to let you see me sad
I promise to be the strong one, always
I promise to take the blame
- without complaint
I promise to be there holding you
I promise to pat your back
I promise to be the shoulder you can cry on
I promise to not let you see a single teardrop
I promise to hold it in
I promise to force it down
I promise to lie and say I'm ok
I promise to miss you
I promise to sing to you
I promise to pretend every things ok
when my hearts broken inside my breast
when I wanna cry:
I promise not to cry

I promise to make you laugh and smile.
I promise that I will always support you even when I do not agree.

I promise to always be there for you
When times are rough.
I promise to always hold your hand.
I promise that I will always
Remain loyal, honest, and trustworthy.
I promise.

I promise that I will laugh at all your jokes.
I promise that you can always feel comfortable telling me anything.
I promise to always love you.
I promise.

I promise that one day I will marry you.
I promise that one day you can call my parents yours.
I promise to be with you for the rest of my life.
I promise.

Will you promise the same to me?
Please give me your heartfelt testimony.

Your promise, your oath, your vows let be spoken.
Promises made, but never ever broken.

You know it's really quite funny
I used to look up to you
You were my ******' idol
But the truth always comes out
(La da da da, la da da da, la da da da da da da
La da da da, la da da da, la da da da da da da)
I don't even know what to call you anymore
Dad... father
Oh wait but this one's my favourite
Lying *** *******!

Don't you ever (don't you ever)
Come near me (come near me)
Or even near to my family
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
I will **** you (I will **** you)
Cause you're dead as a dad to me
And don't ever (and don't ever)
Try to call me (try to call me)
Twenty years was enough to see
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
And I mean it (and I mean it)
You don't ever wanna **** with me

Yo
Let's ******' picture it, ****'s about to blast the fan
I was only eight when mamma had to move to Amsterdam
And you approached her as a married man
So leave it up to me I'll cut your head off like the Taliban in Pakistan
I can't believe it, you're out here making stacks of cheese
And while I'm stuck here struggling I should make your *** a paraplegic
It's sad to see it, but dad you cheated
I swear to God if you come near me you'll get stomped on with my black Adidas'
You had me fooled for all those years with your lies
But now I see it's cause of you for all the tears in my eyes
And to my mother I apologize sincerely cause I
Was always blinded by betrayal that had appeared in disguise
Dad, it's so ridiculous, feeling silly I hit you up
For thinking you were really a parent it makes me sick as ****
And don't be thinking that where I'm at is because of you
My fist is where your head will have a one way ticket to

Don't you ever (don't you ever)
Come near me (come near me)
Or even near to my family
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
I will **** you (I will **** you)
Cause you're dead as a dad to me
And don't ever (and don't ever)
Try to call me (try to call me)
Twenty years was enough to see
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
And I mean it (and I mean it)
You don't ever wanna **** with me

(What up dad?) Do you remember the birthdays you missed out?
(What up dad?) Do you remember breaking into our house?
(What up dad?) Do you remember buying food for yourself?
I was like six without a clue or a doubt, come on now tell me (what up dad?)
I wanna rip you up, no don't just think that's figurative
Living up in your villa while we suffered you told fibs to us
My bottom lip is up but don't assume that means we will forget what you just did to us
You're finished pops
Let it be told, the story how you chilled in mansions with gold
While we nearly got evicted to be ditched in the cold
Don't be tryin' to explain to us, the fact is you did it
The only time I put my hand to you is to smack you with it
And don't go saying that you're something that my step-dad will never be
He cherished me
Your psychopathic *** belongs in therapy
Or maybe I do, cause wanna know what I'd do?
I'd ******' severe your cerebrum singing la dee da doo
And don't you ever

Don't you ever (don't you ever)
Come near me (come near me)
Or even near to my family
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
I will **** you (I will **** you)
Cause you're dead as a dad to me
And don't ever (and don't ever)
Try to call me (try to call me)
Twenty years was enough to see
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
And I mean it (and I mean it)
You don't ever wanna **** with me

I can't believe this man
You were my ******' hero
Every time my mum tried to tell me the truth I was right there defending you
You ain't even call me on my birthday
And now I hear you put a price on my mother's head?
**** that - and ******* too!
Cause since you took away my trust fund I'm stuck paying an interest on my student loan
So stay the **** away from me
And don't you ever

Don't you ever (don't you ever)
Come near me (come near me)
Or even near to my family
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
I will **** you (I will **** you)
Cause you're dead as a dad to me
And don't ever (and don't ever)
Try to call me (try to call me)
Twenty years was enough to see
Cause I promise (cause I promise)
And I mean it (and I mean it)
You don't ever wanna **** with me

Don't you ever
Come near me
Or even near to my family
Cause I promise
I will **** you
Cause you're dead as a dad to me
B-Mike original song
preservationman Jul 2015
You have heard the phrase, “Have I got a testimony”
But the ironic statement being, “Have I got a sermon”
My theme, “MAN MAKES PROMISES, BUT JESUS GIVES RESULTS”
Words tend to have power, but it is what is behind them being influenced
It is also what is established as a probably or maybe
But one who guarantees, and the other entity lacking assurance to proceed
But let’s look at the word “PROMISE”
It is an expectancy, sure thing, arrival, waiting, fulfillment and anticipation
That is man’s definition from the dictionary, but there is no guarantee nor reliability
But God’s fulfillment of the promise, he sees ahead in what you will definitely expect at the right time frame at the right moment
This is called Understanding, Believing, Praising and it is done
But your faith being a commitment as a Christian with divine honesty
As a Christian, you must truly have faith that promise will come, but with that is the praise on high with no doubting of why
Results come when one believes on Christ and questionable thoughts on man’s term
But man is short term and God is long term
Somehow the scale is in balanced because short term doesn’t last very long and God’s long term is where a Christian needs to belong
There seems to be boundaries of the promise with no clarity in what man presents
Yet God’s glory continues to represent, but it is all about praying and praying without ceasing
What holds you back in the Promise, is the negativity thoughts that keep you from seeing the promise and believing
What is it, people keep pick up a novel and read from beginning to end, but can’t time to read the bible to feed their soul and obtain knowledge
Again, understanding and promise are the keys in what we need to see
Man seems to focus on separation of man being their own elect and playing a game of place your bets in their promise
It is a win or lose theory, but now it is apparent and you must chose
But when the promise comes from God you automatically win and there is no lose
Because Praise, Joy and Blessings come as there is an obligation being a commitment of Faith
But God continues and will always say, “I am the way”
Yet man says that’s not ok
If you are depending on man with the promise and results
Think again saints
Man wants you to denounce the promise and results that God will truly provide the time is right
Don’t doubt or your promise and results will pass you by
God wants you to be patient with every try
Promise and results work hand in hand
It all comes at God’s command
Remember Man’s idea of promise and results wants you to move your hope
But man wants you to think on their promise and results because they can’t cope
God’s promise wants you to be steadfast and move forward
Your spiritual blessings will be straight line of onward
Don’t wonder where did promise and results really go
It has been God’s understanding all along and you now know.
Mike Hauser Aug 2015
This is the promise that I promise you
To be here forever faithful, tried, and true
To hold you tight in all that we go through
This is the promise that I make to you

This is the promise before God and man
To give you all my all in all I am
Leaving you no doubt that I can
Keep this promise before God and man

This is the promise I will only make
Once in a lifetime for loves own sake
A promise I promise to never break
This one promise I'll take to the grave

This is the promise that I won't let go
No matter what curves life at us may throw
I thought that you might want to know
Of this promise I'll forever hold

This is the promise when time draws nigh
I will have your frail hand in mine
As we fall asleep into the other side
This is the promise that never says goodbye
I can think of so many ways to ask you to stay. I feel like I’ve already emptied out my mason jar of them to the half-way mark. I don’t know what that means. I don’t know what anything means. I just know that you’ll never feel for me the way I feel for you. I know that you will find someone that will love you in every way you need, and I know that person may not be me. If I said the idea of that made me happy, I’d be lying. I can’t be the ever-positive ex, I can’t promise you that someone else can know the right moments to touch your back. I can’t promise you that someone else will force you to open up to them when you’re upset. I can’t promise you that they’ll be able to hold your weeping head to their chest and they’ll feel the heartbreak I did every time you cried. I can’t even promise you that you’ll wake up holding another girls hand and it feel the way it felt for me. I can only promise you things I know. I promise you that every time you hear a song off of take this to your grave you’ll remember the night we all sang those songs drunk and in love with the worst and best of each other. I promise you that when you read these things you won’t look back at them and they probably won’t really even phase you. I promise you that you’ll always do your best to get to Moe’s on Mondays for your burrito that you won’t most always don't finish. I promise you that you’ll always have the best taste in whiskey, and you will always love the playlists I make. I promise you that the sun will rise every morning just for you, and you will smoke a cigarette to welcome it. I promise you that you will wear a striped shirt at least six out of seven days of the week, and blue jeans five out of seven. I promise you that you will have a soft hum of my voice in the back of your head every time you buy a new pack of marlboro smooths, better yet I promise that you’ll never buy the 100’s because of that. I can promise you all of those things, I can promise you myself.

I promise not to put you on the pedestal
that my parents put me on

I promise to love you unconditionally and accept whoever you are
as my parents didn't

I promise to exceed your expectations and **** myself to make you happy
as my parents don't

I promise to set a reasonable precedent, one that's equal to what we're capable of
as my parents didn't

I promise that you exist because I thought the world would be a better place with you
as my parents selfishly conceived me out of sorrow

I promise to celebrate every birthday with you and bring you breakfast in bed
as my parents left me waiting at school

I promise that I had you tested in the womb to ensure that you're healthy
as my parents didn't, because I'm sick in the head and in the body

I promise to expose you to every continent
as I am confined to this city

I promise to send you to private school only
as my parents sent me to terrible schools

I promise to make sure that you never write a list like this

I promise that I will never break these promises

I promise that your existence means something
as my meaning remains unknown

I promise that you will never feel the daggers I feel, as a result of my parents' negligence

I promise that if you ever feel alone or depressed or left behind or suicidal
I will empathize

Because this pain
is unbearable

And I promise
to NEVER inflict the life I've had
upon an innocent human being
Taboosun Jul 2016
Promise me that you'll never leave. Promise me that you'll remain an inseparable part of my life. Promise me we'll play at the beach on Sundays.
Promise me you'll brighten my day with your graceful movements, weaving their way into memories replayed on rainy days. Promise me that you care. Promise me that I'll never have to worry, about the day of your death. Promise me that I'll be your one and only lover, on this path we share, walking hand in hand. Promise me you'll remember my promise. Promise me that you'll entertain the joyous reminders I nag you with, while eating ice cream at the beach. Promise me that while we sleep, we dream together and build tall skyscrapers, reaching to the stars, shining fourth and blinding the magnificence of our love. Promise me that I'm going to be the only person, that holds the key to unlocking your hearts content.
Jenna Vaitkunas Apr 2016
The uncertainty of the first moment.
The hesitant step forward and your lips against mine.
The awkward laugh and shifting of weight
I promise  I promise
a silent contract shared between two energies,
moving in harmony together, dancing at the thought
I promise  I promise
I traced the goosebumps on your skin with my lips,
reading the braille your body sent out to me,
going over it with my fingertips to seal the deal.
I promise  I promise
I'm a bandaid, you'll toss me once you stop bleeding
or maybe if you bleed too much
I promise  I promise
you're not that temporary
this means so much more
I don't want you to go
I promise  *I promise
What did we even promise?
Mark Lecuona Feb 2012
I gave you my love
But you wanted a promise
I know how it makes you feel
I'm just trying to be honest

I gave you today
But you wanted tomorrow
You had my feelings
All you felt was sorrow

Love without the promise
Love without the promise
I'm sorry baby... I'm sorry...

We had our moments
But you wanted forever
You said it's not enough
Now it sounds like never

Love without the promise
Love without the promise
I'm sorry baby... I'm sorry...

I can give you my love
And in my heart you will stay
I guess that won't do
The promise is in the way

The promise
The promise
It's the one thing I can't give
The promise
The promise
Without it our love won't live

Love without the promise
Love without the promise
I'm sorry baby... I'm sorry...

Song lyrics.....
Gavin Barnard Feb 2015
I promise I'll stay by your side,
I promise everything will be alright.
I promise I'll find you and your ocean
And I'll pull you out or drown with you.

I promise I'll keep you warm,
I promise I'll keep you safe.
I promise that someday
Everything will feel okay.

I promise that this sharpie on my arm
Will become real ink, engraved,
Your name and my promises to you,
Everything I say that I'd do.

I need reminders so that I don't lose sight
Of why I stay here and fight.
What's better than seeing my reasons
Every day of the week,
Every time I twist my arm?

I know that sometimes
We may feel like we're nothing.
Call ourselves a negative something
And lie and say that we're okay,
Curled up and crying on the floor.

But still,
I promise to never leave your side.
I promise I'll make everything be alright,
I promise to hide you from all the fights.

And most importantly,
*I promise to never stop loving you.
Jamie Stevenson Dec 2013
I promise robe your eyes  
when you can't see.
I promise you tobe your
Ears when you can't hear.
I promise to always tell you
What's real when you won't to here the truth.
I promise to life you up when your down.
I promise to wipe your tears
When you feel you need to cry.
I promise tobe your
Strength when ever your weak.
I promise tobe your voice
When you can't find the words.
I promise to never hurt you
And never brack your heart.
I promise that I will always love you with all
My heart no matter what happens
Baby Ill aways promise to give
You Faith when your down.
I promise to lead u a shouder for
You need to cry on.
I promise to love you
Until the end of
Time
Ignatius Hosiana Mar 2016
I am going to promise you nothing
I can't promise to walk with you forever, everyday
because life's too short, can't be certain I'll always be there
I won't promise you paradise when
I don't even know how that place looks like
I won't promise you comfort, it's not something we often find
It can't be all smiles,no, there'll be a tear
I won't promise to always face the monsters,sometimes I will fear
I can't promise I will never let go of us
even if you are in too deep and too dear
I can't promise I'll always hold you tight
Before I retire,how can I be so sure that I won't lose a fight
I won't promise you an umbrella each time it'll rain
some things we can't predict, they happen time and again
I can't promise I won't drive you crazy
there's a **** along the road I will be too distracted to see
and hit the breaks too late and you'll madly scream
"OMFG we could have died", you'll hate the bumpy ride
I can't promise I'll never break your Heart
what the Hell would I be thinking while promising you that
where would I find the guts to think you'll never get hurt?
I can't promise the road will always be straight
even rivers bend and you're not some fish I'm trying to bait
I can't promise it will always feel this awesome and perfect
we won't forever be together from Sunrise to Sunset
things will change, time is a continuum
I'm just stating facts,stuff that happens, don't be upset
Romance is a trip,we won't always have the money
that makes beginnings entertaining
we're now focused and looking forward to the adventure
imagining how colourful the ends of the promising rainbow are
wondering what awaits at every stop on our map
we've spined the globe, made up our minds and changed them
at the moment we're flexible, life's just a game
we can kick the ball this way and that way, we can afford to kiss all day
we're having a good time and it's tempting us to think we have control
I'm on the driving seat and I guide the wheels as you laugh
the car is filled with gasoline of faith and amour
crazy but I think you could kick Angels out of a beauty contest,
your heartbeat is loud enough, especially since I'm listening
and my ears are still vibrant because the centrepiece is still in place
they haven't been deafened by the many love songs we're going to play
and the wax of doubt that will collect in them overtime
the centrepiece will be eaten by termites of familiarity
and guess what, things will start falling apart
our feet are still clean,we cannot predict the dust they shall gather
the perfumes are still fresh on our Suits like the antiperspirants.
the elevators will always work, we think,
not knowing someday we will even fail to find a ladder,how sad
the wings of now, the hot *** that sends us sky high
comes with the chains of tomorrow,the responsibilities
the kids who'll make us careful while rolling in the hay and exasperated
and we'll forget the pleasures, thinking romance is exaggerated
when our minds are blocked by their wrangles and cry
that's the perspiration, that's when the muscles will start aching
that's when our freshness will be lost and we'll stink
the adventure will **** and the love left will all be but faking
Love is just a song, yes let's enjoy it while it's still hitting the waves
time comes when it'll be like the desolate Dead in their cracking graves
I'm not saying we shouldn't enjoy the moment, no
all I'm saying is we shouldn't count on the moment lasting forever
and forget the challenges awaiting at the end of the honeymoon
the burning sun at noon, the dark side of the moon
I'm not saying we shouldn't kiss violently till our young lips bleed
we should,we should feast on the moment with greed
after all nothing can stop karma from taking the lead
let's fulfill all our youthful adventurous need
let's smell the flowers before they wilt and lose their scent
explore the jungles and know how it feels like spending a night in a tent
Let's dangerously walk along the edge of the world, on the fringes
let's vigorously open new doors whilst many still bear rustless hinges
let's drink till we can not remember our names
wines and even the millet brew while our youth carries its fatal flames
for a time will come when these smooth skins shall be tucked
and these two magnetic Hearts will be ******
I just can't promise simply because now feels worth forever
happily ever after is a sugar coated and tasking endeavour
I am going to promise nothing, nothing is enough
nothing will ever be,my dear, nothing lasts forever
But I Love you forever,in case forever's a metaphor for now
Dreams and fantasy keep us intact
but if they're the centrepiece
and reality sets in
Things definitely Fall Apart

— The End —
