PROMISE…a poem

Image Credit

Yesterday, I made a promise,

And today it won’t come true.

Why does it always work this way,

When it comes to you!

——————

I realize these things take time,

But my patience is at an end.

How can I fulfill the promise

When I never did begin?

——————

Tides, they don’t procrastinate.

When the ebb is spent they flow.

The proffered words that left my mouth

Had but one way to go.

——————-

Please, won’t you forgive this fool,

He didn’t mean to lie?

Caught up in the yesterday

While time keeps creeping by.
