But she said she’d never leave; I’d never be alone. She said she’d be there to see me graduate, stand there like the proudest mom, because it’d be my name read aloud.
She said she’d be right next to me when I’d promise my life in white.
She said she would take the grand kids out to see this world.
She promised all these things. She promised me an eternity with her by my side.
She told me so
and my big eyes believed her.
