I Promise


United States


I promise to love you to your dying day

Even if I have to pay 

I promise you I'll never leave

Even with your annoying pet peeves

I promise to give you gifts

Especially after a long night shift

I promise to never give up on you

Even if you love Jack Hughes

I promise to give you kisses

Under the mistletoe at Christmas

I  promise to give you hugs

Even if I'm being a slug

I promise to put a ring on that finger

Because I will always linger

I promise to be true

Especially with you

I Promise
