My Vow

I am not perfect,  nor do I pretend to be.
I am not easy,  and I never will be.
I have done things that were hurtful,  shameful  and regretful and that is my cross to bare.

Never have I meant to hurt you,  although I’m sure I have.
Never have I wanted to anger you,  yet I’ve felt your ire rise.
Never have my transgressions been out of malice,  regardless of what you think.

Forever do I promise to try to make you smile.
Forever will hold you in my heart and soul.
Forever will I love you.

These things I offer you as my solemn vow.
