Resolution: A Promise

To A_____

You will make good your word,
I know - that’s why it’s you
I asked.

But, to make me write mine
down in black and white, to be
folded and kept in your wallet,
so you’d have it at all times
      with you -
you are oh-so sweet ...
and way too smart for me.

You silly girl!
When I promised not to run away,
do you not trust me?

Why do you think it’s you
I made the promise to?

Because I can never break
one made to you –
however much I want to.
