My Promise

From the very first day
I had to have you
You looked my way
And I just knew

Your smile caught my attention
Your words drew me in
You left me in suspension
Now I’m happier than I’ve ever been

I’ll never leave your side
I’ll never hide away
Even if you died
I would never betray

I’m here for good
I’ll never leave
Like a good wife should
I won’t deceive

Take this as a dedication
Of my love to you
I have no hesitation
When I promise my love to you
