Peanuts And Promises


You promised me the world, the sun and stars.
You promised me a journey straight to Mars.
You promised me you'd catch the moon,
And present it to me on a spoon.
You promised me a mansion large
With numerous cars in the huge garage.
As our minds surveyed the rolling fields,
You promised me that they would yield
Equine, Canine, Feline friends,
To walk beside us to the end.
When you saw your promises turn to snow
In summer sun to melt and go,
In rivulets along life's lane
Despairingly you spoke my name.
In torment did you turn and say
"I promised you all beauteous days.
All my promises did through our lives wend.
And I gave you just "peanuts" in the end"
I smiled at you so tenderly
As we sat together knee to knee.
I told you what you did not know
That promises are so; just so.
Our wishes for our loved ones true,
But all I need, is you; just you.
