Treasure Island

LaTasha Diane Thomas


My Promise To You


I dared to believe with faith that dreams do come true
I was certain of that the first moment I saw you

To patiently wait has never been easy,
However, God knew exactly who would please me

Today I marry my confidant and best-friend
Whom I promise to be loyal and cherish until Heaven begins

You’ve given me a reason to live life with limitless love
Praising God for this priceless gift from Above

Your angelic smile makes my heart dance like Gone with the Wind
Every way about you says you’re the perfect gentleman

I promise to be patient and listen to your wise voice
Allowing God to discern my every thought and every choice

You cover me from danger, allowing no harm to whisper my name
I promise to treat you like royalty my king, all the days that you reign

I will gladly bear your future children as form of honor and tribute
My love for you shall remain consistent whether our means are affluent or destitute

You not only fear God, but you chase Him with unapologetic force
That’s why today, I can make this commitment with no guilt, shame, or remorse

I promise to care for you when you’re strong and even more when you’re weak
I shall honor each and every vow with all of my soul to keep

As your wife, I trade-in words like “me, my, and I” for “we, us, and our” as ultimate sacrifice
Today, tomorrow, and forever with you I plan to spend the rest of my life

I want you to always remember I love you because you first loved me
So, I say, “I do” as Mrs. Anthony Tyrone Terry (Jr.)

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
