The Promise
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


If you wait for me
Then I'll come for you
Although I've traveled far
I always hold a place for you in my heart

If you think of me
If you miss me once in a while
Then I'll return to you
I'll return and fill that space in your heart
Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting

If you dream of me
Like I dream of you
In a place that's warm and dark
In a place where I can feel the beating of your heart

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting

Oh, I've longed for you
And I have desired
To see your face, your smile
To be with you wherever you are

Remembering
Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
Please say you'll be waiting

Together again
It would feel so good to be
In your arms
Where all my journeys end
If you can make a promise
If it's one that you can keep
I vow to come for you
If you wait for me

And say you'll hold
A place for me
In your heart

A place for me in your heart
A place for me in your heart
A place for me in your heart

Darren, like my father before me

I'm 44 and I have recently been diagnosed with a grade 2 inoperable oligodendroglioma (brain tumor) and have been told that I have perhaps 1 year left on this earth, I think this is the saddest song I've ever heard, I love this song so much and want it to be played at my funeral but I worry it will upset my daughter to much, it scares me to think of my daughter on her own and that I won't be here to comfort and support her through the trails and challenges that await her through out her life and it breaks my heart that I will never see my daughter graduate university or that I won't be there to walk her down the Isle on her wedding day or meet my grand children, I love you Esmee to the moon and back and want to make as many happy memories with you as possible and I am so very proud of the beautiful, intelligent and courageous young woman you have become, I know that one day (many many) years from now we will meet again, Esmee those day's will be truly glorious fore we shall walk hand in hand through the fields of paradise as we listen to the heavenly choir of angels having shed the sins and the struggles that we carried for all our years, but until that time I will miss you so so much, with all my heart and soul.
All my love, your dad.
may god bless you all, please be kind to one another and cherish your loved ones because life is just to short and far to precious to waste on bitterness and hate "gather ye rosebuds while ye may"

Darren, I hope you are still here. I know miracles do happen. My friend with glioblastoma has far exceeded what doctors predicted for his life expectation. I pray that you have been given more time as well, to be with your beautiful daughter, Esmee. How precious she must be to you. I pray for both of you tonight before I sleep. Holding a place for you both...in my heart. Peace be the journey ❤

I don't steal...🙃
Though I am indeed in love. .. the weird thing that I don't understand is that I think I loose.... I am in love with two really great and amazingly beautiful and strong men for different reasons and its not fair to me going through what I'm going through all by myself without either one of them helping me what so ever.... they are honestly the only two people I have ever given my heart to.... due to whatever the reasons are... I have nothing No one because of people, places, and things

This and the wedding song...still in love.
