These I Can Promise – Mark Twain


I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
I cannot promise you riches, wealth or gold;
I cannot promise you an easy pathway
That leads away from change or growing old.

But I can promise all my heart’s devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow.
A love that’s true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in your’s through each tomorrow.

    • Hi Ben,

      Thanks for bringing that to my notice, after reading your comment even I researched further on this but all I find is the same poem published on multiple sites like you mentioned.

      I had read this long back somewhere hence re-posted it on my blog.
