My Promise

I promised myself
to buy happiness every day
not to look for it
but to pay
with attention and care
and every time I open a can of food
to nourish myself
and then to bow down with gratitude

I promised myself
to take the stars I have
and place them above the clouds
to know and to remember
that the sun is always there
even if the moon takes its place

I promised myself
to keep my heart open to you
to cherish every your word
and to give you mine
and I canโ€™t do any better
