"Life is a broken promise."





That Promise



A promise made, a promise broken

I made that promise not so very long ago,

I made a promise that said I wouldn't leave, that I wouldn't go.

I made that promise not so very long ago

I made a promise to ease your pain, to quell your worry.

I made a promise I shouldn't have made.

I promised you something I shouldn't have promised.

A promise that I made not so long ago,

Will soon be a promise broken.

I'm sorry but it wasn't mine to pledge

A promise made, a promise broken.
