Love Life Poems Logo

My wife and I we're trying to work through the most difficult time in our lives when I wrote this poem. She had an affair and had fallen out of Love with me. I wrote this poem and bought her a ring that had 3 bands inscribed with the words Faith, Love and Hope. I was going to give her the ring and this poem for Christmas this year but before I could she left. I need to share this with someone because the person it was intended for never got to read it.

A Promise To My Wife

© Sean Short


I promise to have hope when weíve strayed off the path
To know in my heart and accept Godís wrath
That the things that He does are not to be cruel
But to make us realize that weíve acted a fool
Replace all our fear and doubt with hope
When we feel weíre at the end of our rope
Healing takes time, well get back on the right track
I will be waiting for you when youíre ready to come back


I promise to have faith in You, in Us and in God
It has struck my heart and soul like a lightning rod
Faith is the strength that will make our relationship strong
It makes my Love for you forever long
Faith is something we can rely on when we feel that were lost
We must never doubt it whatever the cost
When we find true faith, we can find true Love
All we need to do is trust in the Lord above


I promise to Love you through the good times and bad
Iíll Love you when Iím angry, hurt and mad
Love is a choice Iíve made to devote my life
To making you, Michelle, my world, my wife
Nothing will ever change that choice that Iíve made
Even when we feel our Love start to fade
Itís inside my soul, and nothing can shake
My Love for you, thatís a promise I wonít break
