When we were 8 and 9 respectively,
S and I promised to always sit next to each other in class.
When we were 11 and 12 and I moved away again,
A and I promised to write to each other every week.
When we were 14 and 15, and I moved back,
L and I promised we would always be best friends, even if we never met again.
When we are both 16 and life yawned out ahead of us,
another S and I promised to make it work.
When we were 18 and madly in love,
I and I promised to wait forever.
When we were 24 and 22 and so very grown up,
A and I promised to always love each other, no matter what.
When we were 28 and 26,
K and I promised to spend the rest of our lives together.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
