Promise Me

Promise me you’ll not forget anything we’ve shared
Promise me that you’ll reach out even when you’re scared
Promise me you’ll not regret anything you’ve said
Promise me that you’ll learn from every path we tread

Promise me you’ll not give up until you’re flying free
Promise me that you’ll explore wondrous worlds with me
Promise me you’ll not forsake your faith in Neverland
Promise me you’ll dream of us walking hand in hand

Promise me you’ll not destroy fragile bonds of trust
Promise me you’ll always speak the honest truth you must
Promise me you’ll not believe in stereotypes that scar
Promise me that you’ll perceive how beautiful you are

Promise me you’ll not desert the passion of love’s way
Promise that you’ll fly with me forever come what may
Promise me all of these things, but be always aware
My biggest fear remains that I will damage what is rare

Seize the Day: Favourite Inspirational Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together favourite inspirational poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of life, celebrating the indomitable human spirit.. It includes many old favourites like “Poets Must Be” and “Chasing the Blue”, as well as brand new poems like “The Writer” and “Making Ripples”. Sages through the ages wisely say: / Carpe Diem – seize the dawning day / Oh, would that I could assuage that thirst / But the day conspires to seize me first! / With the hurry and scurry / Of home’s frantic flurry / And the hustle and bustle / Of work’s tangled tussle. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
