The tiny road behind the school
Continued further toward the pool
And along with the summer blue
Your memories begin to fade…
The promise I made with you
along the path home that day…
Now and forever,
Can never be kept…
Someday it will be lost.
But you won’t forget, will you?
You can’t forgive me; that’s why
You look back so many times…
Getting upset over silly little things,
You smiled when we locked our fingers in promise.
The things you stuffed into that small bag
Were ultimately all of my dreams.
After all, you never rose up
Out of that summer blue.
I’ll be waiting by the empty pool
Because I promised you I would
When fog rises as I return home,
I stop these legs of mine…
Today on the usual passage. Did you miss each other?
