The Promise

This is the promise you made to me

under the lilac tree

you promised that you’d marry me

and be my darling wife.

O such a promise is worth to me my life, 

to share it with thee through happiness and strife.

And when some day from me you’re called away

On heaven above we’ll meet again to stay. 

Where there’s no sorrow and grief, 

And both our hearts will find contentment and relief

For there we’ll never more have to part

And we’ll be locked forever heart to heart.

Carl Stahl, June 19, 1892


A hand written love letter from my Gr-Great Grandfather.

I photographed a very special engagement session two weekends ago. The gorgeous ring photo above is a preview of things to come 🙂
