I Promise - A Poem

I promise

I shall glisten in your presence

I shall join our hands and stand 

Even if I stand alone for both

 

I promise 

I will live in your memories 

I will relish in the starlight

When you dazzle the sky 

With your sparkle

 

I promise 

I will remember your essence 

I will not cry in your absence 

 

I promise 

I will live

Even if you’re gone 

I won’t burn inside

 

I promise 

I won’t carry sorrow 

I will laugh with grace 

I will raise my head and live

 

I promise

I won’t be lost in the abyss of your memories

I won’t live in the what ifs  

I wish our story hadn’t ended 

 

I promise 

To live without you 

I question why should I live without you

And I will always question.

 

I promise

I won’t carry anger 

I won’t carry burden 

 

I promise

If I am not yours 

I won’t be any other’s 

I promise
