Promise

"If I promise to love you,"
I said with a smile, 
"What would you give me?
And make it worthwhile,"

"Would you give me a star,
straight from the night sky?
A celestial body,
to please my own eye?"

"Would you give me the ocean,
filled of the angels' tears?
A big salty pool,
to treasure for years?"

"Would you hand me the forests,
all green with life?
A leafy terrain,
to end all my strife?"

"But wait,"
I say, rethinking my query,
"Nevermind my love!"
I exclaimed, quite merry

"Don't answer that question,"
I explained to my dear,
"I will promise you that, no matter,
just promise the same, and I shan't shed a tear"
