Promise Shared

Another romantic poem...
Last night we were lovers,
Stung by Cupid's darts,
And the moon sipped the sunset,
Turned around and sprayed the stars,
And their glitter fell like raindrops,
Upon our shoulders as we kissed,
And you promised me forever,
That I'd be your only guest.

I woke up this morning,
Got the fire burning well,
It burned away the dampness,
Of a dreary winter chill,
I gave you breakfast in bed,
And slipped back beneath the quilt,
And I promised you forever...
And I promise you it still.

Tomorrow, we're still lovers,
With our memories to share,
And although we're getting older,
Toward the twilight of our years,
I still promise you forever,
And if forever comes to be,
Then I'll gladly share it with you,
Like your promise shared to me.
