My Promise to Evan

I love you more than life.
I can’t say what I would do
if something stopped life for you.
If the cause was at your own hands
I would be frozen with guilt for what I couldn’t
make you believe.
I’m shouting this to you now,
so I don’t regret what I didn’t do.
You are the best thing in my world.
You make me laugh.
You open me up to “new” music.
You have such a bright string of lights.
I can’t lose you over
an eclipse of the sun.
we made a promise
swear on our lives.
That I won’t be burying you at
the next sunrise
