Forever will I keep, the promise of old
Insisted she said when I made her frown

I remember her tears, as they fell on my heart
I held her tight, while I hushed her goodnight

For a moment just there, she relieved herself right
Her lover was dead, as the angel caressed…

She Was Only Gone for 10 Minutes

A little girl running on a dirt path with green moss along the sides. Her back is to the camera. Her arms are flying out next to her. Her blonde hair hangs to the middle of her back. It has a few curls at the ends. She’s wearing a bright blue dress with white stripes on top and white rainbow unicorns on the bottom. She also has bright pink rubber boots on.
