A Promise


You showed me warmth
When the world was cold.
You brought me light
When my road was dark.

Because of you,
I experienced joy.
I endured pain.
I felt love.
I appreciated life.

Loving you is hard.
Waiting for you is harder.
But you're the reason that I am alive.
But you're the reason that I feel alive.

I am willing to wait for you.
A hundred years,
A thousand years,
And many thousands more.

I'm afraid I might forget your face, your voice.
But I'll remember the rhythm of your heart,
The warmth of your embrace.

The endless maze of time,
The harshest cold of winters,
Won't keep me from you.

I am willing to wait for you.
A hundred years,
A thousand years,
And many thousands more.
