My Promise
Photo by Aarón Blanco Tejedor on Unsplash

When the sky turns green

And birds won’t fly,

When wind doesn’t blow

And hurt doesn’t make you cry

When love doesn’t hurt

And my eyes have no sight,

My ears cannot hear

And the sun is not bright

When trees do not grow

And flowers fade away,

When all hope is gone

And the ladies don’t pray

When night does not come

And the stars don’t shine,

The moon disappears

And home is not mine

If this ever happens

If it ever comes true,

That’s when I promise

I will give up on you.
