    “The Promise”

    If I had nothing to my name
    But photographs of you
    Rescued from the flames
    That is all I would ever need
    As long as I can read
    What’s written on your face
    The strength that shines
    Behind your eyes
    The hope and light
    That will never dieAnd one promise you made
    One promise that always remains
    No matter the price
    A promise to survive
    Persevere and thrive
    As we’ve always done

    And you said
    “The poison in a kiss
    Is the lie upon the lips”
    Truer words were never shared
    When I feel
    Like lies are all I hear
    I pull my memories near
    The one thing they can’t take

    And one promise you made
    One promise that always remains
    No matter the price
    A promise to survive
    Persevere and thrive
    As we’ve always done

    The books still open on the table
    The bells still ringing in the air
    The dreams still clinging to the pillow
    The songs still singing in a prayer

    Now my soul
    Is stretching through the roots
    To memories of you
    Back through time and space
    To carry home
    The faces and the names
    And these photographs of you
    Rescued from the flames

    And one promise you made
    One promise that always remains
    No matter the price
    A promise to survive
    Persevere and thrive
    And dare to rise once more
    A promise to survive
    Persevere and thrive
    And fill the world with life
    As we’ve always done
