Veteran Poet - 1,611 Points (17 June / south africa)


I'll remember you in my days of honour
For you held my hand in my darkest hour
This is my promise
By you I'll do right

In the crowds that hails my name
With words that wish me well
I'll never forget your words
They pulled me out of shame

This is my promise I swear
Never to let fame blind my reason
Nor let its flames be my prison
I'll stay true in all seasons

I'll remember you in my glory
In the tall plains that towers
I'll hold you with high regard
For you knew me when I was nothing

Yes this is my promise
Made in earnest
Without forceful fear
I'll never forget you
