A Promise

September 1, 2007

Take this as a promise That I won't see you Any differently Except to see the good. This embrace, This kiss, Is as good as my word That I won't leave Or turn away Even if you ask me to. That I will stand by you. That you can cry, Or scream, And I will still love you afterwards. Take this is a promise That I will protect you When you need protecting, Hold you When you feel scared, Love you Forever, As long as you still want me. This embrace, This kiss, Is as good as my word That you can trust me. That I'll trust you Even if you don't trust yourself. Take this as a promise That I will see you, Not like they do, But as something beautiful. This embrace, This kiss, Is as good as my word That I won't leave you, So, Please, Don't Ask Me To Go.
