The Promise

It has been so many years

since that moment of truth

when finally you were truly alone


It has been so many years

since you flew with the flames

as the organ played


and I looked out at the distant horizon

seeing you there drifting away

into finality


It has been so many years

since I made you a promise

I could not keep


You said

Do not be alone.


I am not alone
