A Promise

if I give you a penny
what do you offer in return
do you hand to me your heart
to heat the passions of my soul
if I give you a penny
is there more to you I owe
an offering of my fidelity
that a mere lifetime cannot hold
and from the depth of my being
gift to you love, honor and kindness
with sweetness the cornerstone to our home
promise to me and I to you
violence our children will never see
nor feel…
nor hear…
and in your certitude
can you always protect them from fear
if I give you a penny
do you promise all this to me?
