Here’s the thing with promises

Did I miss that turn off?

The one where life is large

And I am full of it

Did you whisper ‘this way’

And I only heard ‘that way’?

Did you stay in

That job

That country

That home

That relationship

That conversation

And I moved on

Quickly, impatiently

Hurrying, always hurrying

Did you forget about me?

Did you forget what you promised?

You promised!

Here’s the thing

Even if you did all those things

And I did all those things

You’re still one who keeps promises

No matter my wrong steps, or right steps

A promise is only fulfilled by the one who promised it

It’s not dependent on me

Thank God for that
