The Promise

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 awhile
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
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
If you’ll be waiting
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.

  1. Hey David sort of off topic, but just received A Cause Untrue! So far, pretty damn good reading.

    I was quite surprised when I got it too, ordered it out of ‘Off the Shelf’. Because I waited for a couple of weeks for a confirmation email from them about the order but never got it.
    Their system is pretty good for me since I don’t have a credit card now. For Swiss orders they follow the normal Swiss method of sending the bill to the house, and then you can pay them by account transfer or pay it at the post office.
    Haven’t been able to put it down yet,(only to do little annoying things like working at the office or getting off the bus :))
    Keep up the good work man. Hoping to see another from you soon.

    Cheers

  4. David,
    Finally finished your book, great read!

    Got a few questions for you on it,(if they violate OPSEC, feel free to ignore 🙂

    1. In the case of Christofelz, I wondered if his background (military family with European Ancestors also in historic military campaigns) is similar to yours.

    2.The chants of the Sinha Regiment soldiers (on alert for a possible Indian Intervention), do all fighting regiments in SLA have something similar?

    3.For Col Aladeniya, I thought the online citations talk about a fuel dump explosion as what finally destroyed the camp. Was there an official record that he directed artillery fire on his own position? (In any case, what a great Man he was!)

    4. Any clues on what the next book is about?? 😉

  5. Thanks, Asanga.

    1. Well, there’s a bit of me in all the main characters.

    2. Yes, most of the regiments have songs and chants, but obviously in Sinhalese.

    3. At one point Aldeniya (Lt not Col) is “said” to have called in arty on himself, but it was the fuel dump explosion that ended the battle.

    4. You’ll have to wait 😉
