Poetry/Short Stories


1999 was our year….

A year when our hearts made promises of love

Our hearts were tangled to never be untangled

You and me kissed for the first time

We held hands and promised to make it last

We carved our hearts’ promises into that tree

That willow tree was our witness

That tree became our spot;our promise was stamped there

We made a promise to come back some day…

A promise we never got to keep..

Our promise of 1999….

    1. Thank you Deborah. Leading up to valentines day, my mind tends to wonder about romance at different stages. This poem points at a young love; clueless but sure of what they feel at the time.
