The Silent Vow was inspired by words that a friend once said to me :) He is very dear to me, but I'm not sure if he will ever know just how I feel...

His breath in my ear, whispering words of beauty,

Always positive and sure,

For even when our love was put to the test,

I knew everything would endure.


His hand in mine, tracing patterns,

An inscribed promise to always stay,

I know that with him, this love is pure,

Opening the gateways of a new day.


Overwhelming my heart,

What is this feeling?

Surely it can’t come from me?

For I’ve been hurt in the past, torn and broken,

A tattered heart no one else could see.


“Keep your chin up,” he says. “It’ll be alright,”

And I can see now that his words are true,

For as long as he is here, my heart will stay pure,

Because I know that he loves me too.


For when all is dark the sun will rise,

Opening the brightened paths of tomorrow.

And when all hope may be lost, never fret,

A holy miracle will come upon this day,

Breathing the silent vow for all eternity.
