I Gave Her My Word

I gave her my word
I’d be here in the morning

That didn’t stop me from uttering
My prayer not to wake up again

Because that wouldn’t be like breaking my promise

What I’ve learned is that those prayers
Don’t work any better

Than the ones I whispered as a child
To wake up as a girl
