I Promise - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Take my hand
And walk with me into the sunlight;

We’ll take the poetry of Keats
And the poetry of Yeats,

We’ll pray beside flowers
And walk through sacred gates
Of a new beginning
Where every hurt is healed
And dissipates.

I’ll find child-like innocence
In your eyes,
And I promise to believe
That love will never die.
