Promises

The only girl in the world see says forever.
I ask forever
Forever is such a long time,
But we've already lived a million years.
And she's so wonderful.

All soft eyes and sweet laughter.
Countless kisses and exactly ten interlaced fingers.

Is it possible to count an impossible number,
To name every burning star in the sky?
Forever is such a long time
And who knows what happens even tomorrow?
Tomorrow is so soon.

Forever is such a long time.
This is a promise I can keep.
