You Promised

I waited

For you

But you never



I watched the sunrise

I cried as it set

The moonlight

Engulfed me

The stars

Spelled out you name


I stood in the ocean

Frozen in time

The wind took me back

To when you said

You would always be mine


I rode the white horses

I sailed over clouds

My heart was aching

But my hope

Never gave out


My voice got lost

In the thunder

It smothered my calls

So you never heard me

That’s why you never came


I am still waiting

Like I promised I would

I’ll wait here


I know

You will come

If I wait


I’ll wait til

You are ready

Because you promised

You would
