My Promises Mean Something

My promises are not like handshakes
They will not touch your palms briefly
Then leave the rest up to chance
Once parted

My words are not like kisses
They will not caress your lips on a whim
Then leave you only with lingering sensations
Once separated

My deeds are not like embraces 
They will not hold you tightly for a moment
Then leave your body to cool down alone
Once relinquished 

My promises
My words
My deeds

My love

They are a solid foundation
Upon which you and I can stand
Together

Indefinitely
