A Promise

Scale Lily

Promises, Promises, words but no reward
I told her a long, long time ago I would
But time gave way to  procrastination
And the words stopped sounding like they should
When I father says, I will
It is expected the child
The letters put away
Not forgotten, but just filed
But five years had long since past
When she opened up the drawer
And handed back my words to me
She did not believe them anymore
So I stopped what I was doing
And held the paper in my palm
My priorities now shifted
Welcome, to
