A promise

Rainbows and birds

Darkness fills the colors

As the sky begins to clear

I hear the birds

And know the town is near

I shall play my concertina

With some luck

I will eat tonight

As the butterfly whispers

Like the promise in the sky

And the beauty that surrounds me

On this bank

I will someday see.

Hold my hand

And together we’ll walk

Towards  life

A promise.
