I Promise

‘Will you return

Ever?

Or is this time the last time

That I touch

Your wings, light as death,

Before you soar

Again

Into the sky?’

/

‘I will return¬†

Always:

As long as you remember me,

I’ll cross

The endless

Expanse of space,

And sit with you,

And dream – ‘

/

‘I promise to return!’

/

‘And if you promise to return,

Then, I will wait

For you

Forever’
