these promises…

told her I wasn’t goin’ anywhere…said I’d wait for her…these promises made in the night under a shared blanket…keepin’ each other warm with words…an embrace…a kiss…somethin’ holdin’ us together…kept us glued for a long time…

maybe it was magic…some kinda spell cast on both of us…who knows…spells can be broken…

she wanted to leave for a while…go away and spread her wings…try somethin’ on her own…she wanted her freedom…and I gave her that…with blessings…blessings…

waited on her…weeks…months…she sent her love via the U.S. Mail…letters smellin’ of lavender…rose hips…sage…I rubbed my face in the paper…words…her scent was all over ’em…put me to sleep…made me dream…of love…love…

but one day the letters quit comin’…just stopped…like a leaky faucet…’ventually ran out…wondered if I’d ever hear from her again…if I’d ever hold onto her again…I wondered…

told her I wasn’t goin’ anywhere…said I’d wait for her…these promises made in the night under a shared blanket…
