I have made a promise to You.
And like many of my promises, I wasn't able to keep it,
Time and again, I would fail You,
But time and again, You would believe in me.
Accepting me, as if I never hurt You, would never ever do.
With open arms, with all your heart, You would take me.
There is nothing that i would do or say, more or less
Would amount to what You have done
And would still do for me.
The kindness, the understanding and the patience,
That You, so generously give me all the time.
The Greatness of Your love is too much
Compare to my little soul.
But you're always being there for me
Simply tells me that I deserve You.
You give all of You to me
But in return I know,
I wasn't able to do the same.
Yet You, still stayed with me.
To give me the peace and quiet that I wanted,
The security and comfort that I longed for,
To always take care of me.
To listen to my weaknesses.
To believe in my dreams,
To take away the pain and the hurt in my being,
To be the Truest Friend.
These and all wonderful things
That only You could make possible.
I know in time more than just saying 'Thank You',
I would be able to really be of worth
To the Greatness of Your Love.
I would be able to keep the promises I made to You.
I would be able to stop hurting You,
And failing You.
I know that I need not tell You to stay with me
And be with me all throughout my life,
For You will be.
You have never left, and never will You.
But I would still ask you to be forever present in my life,
Through the sad and mad seasons,
For every imaginable situations.
I would like to thank You for everything that has been,
That is, and that will be.
And for all that I have become, and would still become.
Just for the simple reason that
You are in my life and that You love me.
With all my heart, thank You, Almighty God
For Your undying and unconditional Love.
