A Promise Kept

by Joan Serratelli

They met when she was 4
He was 6
and had no use for her

But they became friends

And the friendship strenghed
as the years went on

She became his conscience

She could keep his dirty little secrets

and he protected her

They saw each other every day

He would ALWAYS be there for her

Best friends

But there came a time when He had to leave

She was the only who knew why

Again, she kept his secret

He disappered
But She knew he'd be back

She kept track of everything that happened
in his abscence

And he did reappear
after all, He promised her
that he always be there for her

She kept his secrets
And he kept his

He was gone 16 years She knew he was alive She would "feel" a certain chill if he died ....one day he would come home and he did The friendship weathered every storm
It was like he NEVER left
Sometimes things work out
He would never leave again
