Pledging My Love

Forever my darling
Our love will be true
Always and forever
I’ll love just you

Just promise me darling
Your love in return
May this fire in my soul dear
Forever burn

My heart’s at your command dear
To keep love and to hold
Making you happy is my desire dear
Keeping you is my goal

I’ll forever love you
The rest of my days
I’ll never part from you
And your loving ways

My heart’s at your command dear
To keep love and to hold
Making you happy is my desire dear
Keeping you is everything of my goal

I’ll forever love you
For the rest of my days
I’ll never part from you
And your loving ways
