Pledge

"The Valkyrie Brunhilde Seeks Out Wotan" - Arthur Rackham, c. 1910s
“The Valkyrie Brunhilde Seeks Out Wotan” – Arthur Rackham, c. 1910s

i don’t make

promises

i cannot

keep:

i do

what

i can

to get

everything

done – and done

well.

 

so, listen –

listen,

my love,

my lodestone,

my heart:

i will do

what i can,

what i will,

what i would

for you.

turn dreams

into full-blown

reality;

banish your

nightmares;

bring you peace,

bring you joy,

bring you love

to shield you

from the

harshest blows.

 

i will do

what i can

and see

that no

harm

befalls you,

that your

steps

never falter,

that you

claim

your place,

your pride,

your glory

on this

earth.

 

this i

pledge;

this i

promise;

this i

keep.
