A Promise

Written by: Trudy Diane Rider

I don’t remember the day I almost died
but they tell me that I did
now here I am to tell the tale
and the hopefulness it gives
for I made a promise to myself
to live as never before
cause life is all too frail my friend
to live behind closed doors
Be strong and happy everyday
let those you love know no bounds
for it may end too soon for you
to share what you have found
hold tight that love within your heart
and tend the seeds with care
for in the end that’s all we have
the love we’ve nurtured here
