Promise Me

Promise Me

A Chapter by Wondering Mind

If I say forever

I’m sure you know I lie


I’m mortal for sure

one day I’ll simply die


And if I say always

It means all my days

no more

after that, I can’t be sure


But I promise this

I will give and give and give

for as long as I live

until the day I die


and for my promise now

I want you to promise then


I hate the thought

of hurting you, 

you see


Please promise me


That you’ll smile my memory


Don’t cry

the day I die

. wow! ... you have four grown up children ? ... super awesome ... :) ... i'm sure you are a spectacular dad ... about the poem ... well ... it's beautifully written ... but impossible to implement ... on a slightly different note ... there's big time war in my family about which photo of ours to be displayed in the living room when we die ... and the person who is dying ... is never satisfied with the choice of the others ... this morbid discussion takes place once a year ... and each year ... there's a war ... and finally the alive side says ... to the dying side ... we get to choose which picture we see every day because we're still alive ...

forever - one of my least favorite words.

“God is mighty, but despises no one;
he is mighty, and firm in his purpose.
6 He does not keep the wicked alive
but gives the afflicted their rights.
7 He does not take his eyes off the righteous;
he enthrones them with kings
and exalts them forever. "

Job 36 5-7
