A Promise Kept

I can't promise that the sun will rise, Or that I'll still be here tomorrow I can't promise who I'll be tonight Be it glee, or deepest sorrow. I can't promise that we'll never mourn, And feel pain inside our hearts I can't promise that we'll last forever But my love shall never part. I can't promise that the sun will set; That this day will die in peace, I can't promise that you'll feel for me And your love will never cease. I can't promise that the stars will shine, 'Cause they don't shine for you and me, But I promise that my words were true And my love will always be. * For my dear friend Brett *
