Take My Hand and Promise Me

Take my hand and promise me

You won’t ever let go of me

Never ever let my skin erode

Or ever let my head explode

Never let my heart skip a beat

Or let my eyes grow obsolete

Never let me feel a pain

In my knees or in my brain

Let my neck endure no ache

Or ever let my backbone break

Just ensure that there’s no sign

In my body of decline

Still if He sends the Angel of Death

To break my nerves and take my breath

Rip apart my bones and skin

Grab hold of all my love within

Keep it in your heart and preserve

There, for eternity, I will serve

  1. Hello, Mr. Frank! Have you ever fallen for someone who still has feelings for someone no longer there? How should one deal with that? Move on?
