Broken Promise. Five Years Ago by Yolanda Beukes

by William Holman Hunt

Five years

Five years ago we made promises

Made a beginning

Made two into one

I gave you my being

My protector you promised

To hold me and never let me go

Through ups and downs

The highs and lows

I remain forever to you

Always kept the memories

Of how we walked to see each other

The tears shed to be near

Distances that never part

The love I have for you

My heart belonged to you

When I said I do

Five years ago

You said it too.
