Promise

Into the darkness of your past and the uncertainty of your future,
Into the blessing of your help and the misery of your helplessness, I put my promise:
I am there.

Into the playfulness of your feelings and the sobriety of your thoughts,
Into the wealth of your silence and the poverty of your words, I put my promise:
I am there.

Into the fullness of your tasks and into the emptiness of your bustle,
Into the multitude of your skills and into the limits of your talents, I put my promise:
I am there.

Into the success of your talks and the boredom of your praying,
Into the joy of your success and into the pain of your failure, I put my promise:
I am there.

Into the narrowness of your daily routine and the vastness of your dreams,
Into the weakness of your failure and into the strength of your heart, I put my promise:
I am there.
