"The Promise" ©?Jim Aitken

1
We promised each other, when one of us, went on
We'd say in a quiet prayer, how each day had gone
Out the blue, it caught you cold; no time to say, goodbye
Hope, you can hear me now, With heavy heart, I'll try
Your presence is around me, small things here and there
Though I cannot hold your hand, your touch is everywhere

Ch
Rest now my love
Let your spirit go free
There's a timeless place somewhere
You will be waiting for me
I love you still
I always will

2
I miss the twinkle in your eye, the love you shared with me
Your Hand in mine, along the sand, our favourite place to be.
Told someone the other day, "I've lost my rock and strength"
Wiped a tender moments tear, "I miss my closest friend!"
I think back, to the day we met, when first I saw your face,
Then forward to that bitter sweet, warm, but last embrace

Ch
Rest now my love
Let your spirit go free
There's a timeless place somewhere
You will be waiting for me
I love you still
I always will

Br
As you drift away, my heart will follow
To show my love is true.
When our moment comes I will call your name
Place your hand in mine, till end of time

Ch
Rest now my love
Let your spirit go free
There's a timeless place somewhere
You will be waiting for me
I love you still
I always will
I always will
