Below is a masterpiece by a classmate and a good friend of mine way back in high school. I consider it a privilege that he shared this piece here in Enzo's Point. Let's all fall in love again. Read on.

Promise of Love
by: Jordan B. Bandojo 

Lend me your heart my darling,
        And I will whisper softly the breezes
        Of the magical words I'd kept langsyne.
        I will give to you the roses that bring
        The perfume of sweet embrace,
        Hidden in Shakespeare's promises.

Out of the darkness of the night,
        I will let the moon of my solar system
        Shine and illuminate your perfect beauty,
        And you will become my only star,
        Glistening in my constellation.

Verses I will write for you,
        So that when you read the glowing words,
        I could smell the scent of the lilacs
        Coming out from your mouth.

Eros will then wake up from his deific repose,
        And I will bestow to you the amulet of love
        That would cling us to the horizon of forever.
        Let me embrace you...
        And kiss you...
        Amid this Elysian daylight
        As I give you this promise of love.
