Sometimes you capture the most lovely phrases in conversations around you, and they beg to be put into a poem…

.

You are the promise I made to myself,

A gift worth the challenges faced.

You are the promise I dream in faith,

A gift worth the challenges raced.

You are the promise I made to myself.

.

I will fulfil your specific yearning, 

A gift of my heart and my time.

I will fulfil the goals unfurling,

A gift of my love and my rhyme.

I will fulfil your specific yearning.

.

You are the promise I made to myself.
