A Promise

If I promised you

to wait

until all the leaves are off the tree

until the frost is on the ground

if I promised you

to wait

until you are certain

autumn is over

and winter is howling in

on the next cloud

If I promised to wait

just long enough for you

to say goodbye

then I would never leave

so I will not promise

you know this cold

hurts my bones

I will go

when I feel the ache

set in again

my love

is bigger than all the miles

between us

I will go

and sing I love you

into the warm winds

and you will hear my whispers

on the summer breeze
