The Vow
Sapphire waves besieged the shore,
with fury calling at my door,
for me to join them in retreat.
But not yet ready for defeat,
I spurned their request
and went onwards with my quest:
to live and love with you.

With my life at last fulfilled,
I have succumbed to natures will.
Now tranquil as the ocean’s depths,
I feel a peace here after death.
My spirit’s strong and remains whole,
for I vowed this vow within my soul:
to live and love with you.
