Just a really short poem from a really bad poet.

Cross my heart.

I cross my heart and swear to die
That even if I have to shove a needle in my eye.
I'll do everything that I can possibly do.
Only to see you once again.
So, I cross my heart and swear to die.
That even when my time has come and there is no light.
I still have the promise to pull through.
If only to never dissapoint you.

You're not a bad poet. This is your feelings and that is beautiful. I love it.

Sorry for not responding but I've been busy with traveling and the like for a while.
But again thank you!

Yes, it's short—but you're not a bad poet. In fact, you did an amazing job here. The poem was very sincere and direct to the point. I loved it. :) Well done, Gilles!
