Promise.

Remember that dress you used to wear?
Leopard shift and it made you so pretty
Now it hangs alone, gathering dust
Never again will you wear it aged twenty

Things have changed now, that life’s gone
For an illness has stolen your world
An illness without a drug or a pill
It has stolen that smiling young girl

You look in your stained bedroom mirror
See a broken and unrepaired wreck
But you fake a smile with falsified pride
You have learnt about pulling that trick

You walk the streets that supply your home
See the shadows of your short-lived life
Replaced now with happier people
A man with a child, a dog and a wife

One day you decide this must be the end
Guilt and regret is too much to bear
So you brush yourself down and lift yourself up
Because there’s a wonderful world out there
