Promises--100 Words


Promises are made.

Promises are broken.

Promises are kept.

John Lennon sang, “Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.”

The breaking of and keeping of promises are closely tied together.

I don’t think most people make promises to break them; but, if great care isn’t given, that’s exactly what we do.

And, when that happens, hearts are also broken; lives are changed; and, futures are rewritten.

“I will love you forever” quickly rings hallow when a promise isn’t kept.

Let’s focus not so much on making promises as keeping them.


  1. There are so many promises made that do not count the costs and obligations of those promises and THAT is why many are broken. A promise not kept is a promise broken.

  2. the I will love you forever promise is a hard one but deep down even when it doesn't work out there is still that love though well hidden.
    A lot of people on there death bed remembers the forever loves of theie lives though time, distance or something else has kept them apart.
    This was good. thanks
