About the Poem

I promised an old love I hadn't talked to in many years that I would send him one of my poems. I looked through them all, but eventually decided to write this for him instead.

I Promised You A Poem

I promised you a poem
so I went through my book
I couldn't find anything
so I took another look
This time I looked
within my heart
that is where I found
the words to start

I promised you a poem
but where do I begin
there are so many years
we need to fill in
We had lost touch
for such a long time
so many things have happened
in this life of mine
but through all that's gone on
and all the years passed by
I've never forgotten you
and even though we've grown apart
you will always have
a special place in my heart
I promised you a poem
not knowing where to begin
now I write you this poem
not knowing where to end.
