Your Promise

Land with me
Atop the sea
And wait for hope
To pour down

Another day has
Come and gone
Taking us closer
To our forever

Over the mountain
And around the pines
Down the path
A brilliant green

Shadowed light leads
The way, our
Footsteps make soft
Impressions in the ground

Continually running,
That is what
We do, over
And over again

With the promise
Of a thousand
Years to come
We keep pace


They wait to
Welcome us
At last, under
A brightened sky

We stop.
We look up.
We breathe.


We made it.
We are home.
