I promised you. I wish I didn't, I wish I could say something for you. I want to be your voice, But I know you don't want anything said. And I want to respect you, I just hope your voice is around the corner, But until then I'll fight for you in silence.
I promised, and I won't break my promise. (March 4, 2019)
It's only a few months ago never once had I written a poem ever before In my life, but being Inspired to write through the very sad loss of my dearest wife In order to keep her memory alive And keeping a promise made to myself began to write poetry, but learned by so much the review's that I got and reading poetry of other's That they all help me so much In keeping my dear wife Helen's memory alive Thanks to all, for you'll know who you are for keeping the memory of Helen so much alive God Bless Her Soul Helen Mary Walker 1955 July 22nd - 2017 December 23rd R.I.P
Thanks to all for help keeping the memory of Helen so much you'll know who you are thank you so very much for keeping her memory and my dreams very much alive bless you all
Today I took a good look Inside my heart and now I no for sure, If I dont move from this time that I'm In I'll will die a sad and lonely old man for I've done all I can, and can't do any more but to keep your memory alive My promise too you for that's what I'll do and never let go, you're hear In my heart I swear to you that's where you'll always remain But my darling I have to move on for If I dont and stay all alone I'll surely will die that of broken old man so Helen please I beg find a place In your heart To forgive your sad old man for I have too live on but cant live entirely alone
Helen forgive me I beg you I can't live my life entirely alone But will keep my promise to I will keep you memory alive I'll never let go, but will die if I dont move on
Will this pain ever release Its hold me, and let me try live again for I've done all that I promised and kept all the memory of you so much alive And the world now know of you Helen and the twenty years we spent together through the poems that I write and all who read of you everyone now Helen love's too
A promise kept to Helen made to myself Is being fulfilled and keeping your memory alive and always will
Why are you so afraid? Who takes the courage out of us and leaves empty pages on our doorsteps?
If you'd ask me nicely I gladly lend you my aid In return just be as good as you allow yourself to be and thus I promise silently to instead of one I'll make two beds
Inside of these four sides and many scriptless lines My love's never quite sure how to call itself I call her by the only name that I know but know that it's not enough, not quite
If I wouldn't know better I would beg for your trust in these strong-rooted vines All I want is to let me be me for the sake of myself And hold closely and in full daylight my beloved stranger, reflected in fresh-fallen snow For I'd never want to be ashamed of keeping a feeling whole and tight
Please don't ever let me lose my hope in a strangers mind, it's all I got left in a world full of shallow familiars and quiet pretenders Don't let me go stray and leave the path less traveled
Let me have one hand that's tender that isn't my own trying hard to hold on to slippery simplicity
