I can­not promise nev­er to be angry;
I can­not promise al­ways to be kind.
You know what you are tak­ing on, my darling –
It’s on­ly at the start that love is blind.
And yet I’m still the one you want to be with
And you’re the one for me – of that I’m sure.
You are my clos­est friend, my favourite person,
The lover and the home I’ve wait­ed for.
I can­not promise that I will de­serve you
From this day on. I hope to pass that test.
I love you and I want to make you happy.
I promise I will do my very best.
