A Lovers' Pact

Written by: Roy Keith

The snow,so peaceful and serene,
Caressed by  the soft moonlight,
Gave magical feelings to the night

The soft blue glow
The lovers’ words that then did flow,
Their lips closer and  closer
Until,locked in the throes
Of a passionate embrace,
He decided to express his feelings,
To keep her safe.

He whisped softly,
His words like music to her ears,
“I Love You,”
And her response the same,
Heard like the gentle breeze,
“And I,love you,forever.”

That was the night they promised
To be together through everything,
Each to care for the other when old and gray.
A lovers’ pact
The Most likely to last
