Make Me a Promise

Make me a promise

Share with me 
your dreams 
your words 
and your heart 

Promise that 
you'll see me 
as I am 
as you hope me to be  

you'll hold my hand 
and my heart 

That you'll kiss me 
as you do today 

Promise that our nights 
on the riverbank 
will cool our skin 
but not our fervor 

Promise to be mine 

Make me a promise
