I shall not scale mountains
Or swim nautical miles;
My heart will not seek to
Endear or beguile.
I shall not wallow in pain and tears,
Nor the flame of love burn in my heart;
My love shall not bide or adhere,
Like a transient rainbow it shall depart.
I promise not to bring you to the moon
Nor pluck the infinite stars.
I shall remain sincerely
