Promised

Promised you a treasure
Little child
Promised you a secret
Running wild
Locked away is all
That I could tell
Down within the caves
Where none may dwell

Promised you perfection
In a day
Promised you the tender
Things to say
Turn the key to open
All that’s light
Let this be your guardian
Through the night

Promised you a treasure
Little friend
Promised to protect you
To the end
Take this light to guide you
All the way
Even in the night-time
You’ll find day

And if you should ever
Lose your way
Know that I’m beside you
All the way

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
