The Promise

The Promise..by Chris Cornell

 

My sons tattoo sleeve for his daughter❤

If I had nothing to my name
But photographs of you
Rescued from the flame
That is all I would ever need
As long as I can read
What’s written on your face
The strength that shines behind your eyes
The hope and light that will never die
And one promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
And fill the world with life
As we’ve always done.
Now my soul is stretching through the roots
To memories of you
Back through time and space
To carry home
The faces and the names
And photographs of you, rescued from the flames
