The Promise

As the moon shone on to its full delight,
She held on to him, hands clasped tight…
They walked on and on as time flew by,
Tears streaming, he wished she didn’t die,
Fighting her emotions, she wiped his eyes…
“I’ll be there, twinkling up in the skies…”
Braving a smile, she assured her love,
Heart aching yet she pretended tough!

“Baby, promise me you’ll find a new love…”
“You are leaving me alone, isn’t the pain enough?!”
Life was small yet she felt truly blessed…
For a guy, who loved her to pieces and shreds,
If given a choice, besides him, she would forever lie.
But more then often life hardly does comply!
One day, when she finally lay on her deathbed,
She brought up the request, his hand on her head…
“Baby, swear upon me, you’ll find a new love…”
“Its OK sweets, your memories are enough…”
“Wouldn’t you fulfill my last dying wish?”

Her words did make his tears unleash…
Days later, when her body, besides him, lay…
His heart broke a million pieces, that day!
Years later, as he caressed ‘her’ hair…
Remembering the promise, he was made to swear,
He kept his promise as she had said,
Sitting besides his ‘girl’, he kissed her head…
“Which is mom?” she asked munching a pie…
“The brightest star, twinkling up in the sky!!”

Life is often a hard choice…
Love appears fake…
But among a dozen cheaters there’s that one guy
Who’ll make you believe that true love exists…
Just like this guy who adopted a child and
Decided to share his love with her… his daughter!
