The Promise - Poem by Melissa Keen

You made me a promise
you said 'I'll Keep It'
today you said 'I can't'

You made me a promise
you said 'I'll Quit'
today you lit one up.

You made me a promise
you said 'I'll Go'
But you not here

You made me a promise
you said 'I'll Keep It'
today you let me down
