Promise
by Kevin Mercurio

Make me a promise that you can fulfill
Love should always sparkle and be profound
Find the compromise that evades us still

Novel brings the smile against our will
Predict the other’s action and sound
Make me a promise that you can fulfill

Spend time to develop the romance skill
Sweet memories record the voyage bound
Find the compromise that evades us still

Eventual gloom peaks atop the hill
We turn our heads to past light on the ground
Make me a promise that you can fulfill

Consecutive dark nights destroy and kill
Selfish pride and anger come round
Find the compromise that evades us still

Dear love, I hold close to what brought us thrill
Before the events that have led us frowned
Make me a promise that you can fulfill
Find the compromise that evades us still
