Listen to Promise (Reprise) by Akira Yamaoka


You have my word
for Always
No matter what
to forevermore remain

When creatures stir
in the hallways
Not to stop
less every devilment be slain

This will be my promise
to the grave
This will be my honour
for the horrors you have faced

Life and some way longer
to remain
Forevermore a scholar
of corroborating faith

Tears of the Madonna
in your veins
Weeping an infinity
of dignity and grace

Fittingly you flit through
light and shade
Peeking through the blinds
to another time and place

Whispering affinity
to play
Skipping to the mirror
where we’re visibly the same

Nigh on inexplicably
Sincere
True Real Clear
unequivocally brave

Nevermore defeat
be entertained
Never mourned the years
of necessitated pain

Fearless in the way
you overcame
Peerless in the courage
which encouraged love to reign

Nourishing
on flourishing terrain
Stunning in the sun
and as becoming in the rain

Tears of the Madonna
in your veins
Weeping an infinity
of dignity and grace

You have my word
for Always
No matter what
to forevermore remain

When creatures stir
in the hallways
Not to stop
less every devilment be slain

This will be my promise
to the grave
This will be my honour
for the horrors you have faced

Life and some way longer
to remain
Riddling tomorrows
out of yesterday’s refrain

It would be my honour
To remain

Take this sacred promise
To the grave

Forevermore a scholar
to the faith

That in your eyes
the tide will rise again
