I made a promise to myself

Not to see you as a wandering soul again,

Not to leave you when you needed me the most,

Not to see you cry silently,

Without letting anyone hear

Those sleepless nights you had,

Nights you cried till your eyes ached,

Only your pillow knew your sorrows,

The pain that was inside your heart,

That you carried every day, as if a stone tied to your neck

I promised that you would be happier

I promised that you would smile everyday

I promised I would give my hand to hold

I promised I would be your shadow

Those promises are not just words, I’m guarding them with my life

Tomorrow would be full of promises and hopes

I would still be your guardian, your friend in need,

Till death play his cruel game with me,

I would be there for you , I will be forever

Till eternity….

    My throat is tight and I’m blinking hard…

  11. This is a very personal poem, I liked your powerful use of the words I and you, because people use them a lot in poetry, but they don’t add much whereas you draw emphasis.

    Nice poem!

    I always keep promises, never break them..

  13. deadpoet88 says:

    Beautiful, that is the kind of promises that should be made. More often than not, people make promises, and later they break them, without giving a second thought to how hurt the person would be.

    I have always felt that promises are meant to be kept and not broken. Why make promises if you cannot keep them? Great poem!

    Are u crying out for something , a poignant feeling that engulfs your mind to a point of desperation that seeks to reconcile with some thoughts/actions/or/deeds in your hitherto wanderings in life. Honestly I cannot comprehend your thoughts at times but I feel that u r trying to explain something u feel inside u which the norms of comprehension defy..I was deeply touched,& perhaps someday u will tell me what u meant? (so many interpretations are possible.Thanks for a truly enlighting verse.
