[Poetry] A Promise

He promised to show me the sunrise.
We would drive to the beach,
Chasing the dawn,
And wiggle our toes in the sand.

Holding on to his promise
Was like waking up from a dream,
Like reaching out next to me,
And feeling the ghost of his hand.

Today, I promised to remember
As I basked in the dawn,
That even if I watch it alone,
The sunrise is still as grand.

Written for a poetry prompt on Instagram. Stretching out those writing muscles. How’s everyone’s Monday so far?

P.S. If you’re on Instagram, give me a shout! Always happy to follow my fellow writers.
