The Promise

“I did it, Dad!  I got a perfect score on my spelling test.  Can we go?” Tommy asked with a high level of excitement. He handed a piece of paper to his dad with a big grin.

His dad took the paper and looked over the words on it. “That is impressive Tommy.  Yes, we can go, not until you have had dinner though.”

As soon as the family finished their dinner Tommy turned to his dad, “Now Dad?”

“Yes Tommy.”

They arrived at the ice cream parlor and Tommy said, “Can I get a banana split?”

“Sure, you can,”

Let’s Make A Deal

Show me what you have to offer

And I will show you my heart

Bargain with me until

We strike a deal of love

I will pay for your emotions

With the beating of my heart

If the cost becomes too high

We will reconsider our deal

But until that time comes

I will yearn for you each day

And do all that I can

To honor this deal of love
