You said you’d love me forever.
You promised your heart would be mine.
And yet, when we fought
I just somehow thought
That you might be changing your mind.
I spoke some words out of anger,
Not meaning to hurt you so.
The sight of your tears
Awakened my fears,
And darling, I just have to know.
Do you still believe in forever?
Do you believe dreams can come true?
For darling, no matter whatever
You say, I promise I’ll always love you.
I cried as you gave me your answer,
And I could feel you crying, too.
You spoke with a kiss.
“I promise you this,
That I will forever love you.”
