 I Promise You This...

 

The sun was setting

That cold winter day.

I was shivering inside

As you looked into my eyes.

 

We made small talk

Trying not to cry.

You paused for a moment

I felt your heart sigh.

 

Won’t be back, you whispered

Holding me tight.

Too young to understand

Dear Lord, it wasn’t right.

 

After all of these years

I will never let go.

I promise you this

My Bro’.
