Lost Promise-Song

Ever have someone in your life you love beyond all reason and doubt not just because you're related, but because you're just that close, and when they fail to live up to their promises, it hurts that much more?

My father has been promising me 1 thing, since I was 8 years old. I'm now 29. I can see what it does to him, and it's why he doesn't often get my hugs. He stinks. Smoking doesn't just kill, it makes you smell horrible. He knows he should quit, he even tries, saying This should be easy, I'll be smoke free by the end of the month. That was in November. So, this is his song.

Lost Promise

I won't hold your promise anymore
The validity has vanished with your strength
It's been 21 long years
Waiting for your truth to come forward
With the rest of you

I didn't expect this from you
Of all the people in my life
I think of you the most

You're my rock
You're my island
And I'm loosing you every day

I won't hold your promise anymore
I held it so long it feels like a lie
I still love you and I know
You're strong enough to let go
And turn this around

I didn't expect this from you
Of all the people in my life
I think of you the most

You're my rock
You're my island
And I'm loosing you every day

I won't hold your promise anymore
I let it go with years of cried tears
That you've never seen me cry
Or didn't care to see
Even when I know you love me too

I didn't expect this from you
Of all the people in my life
I think of you the most

You're my rock
You're my island
And I'm loosing you every day

I won't hold your promise anymore
I let it go with years of cried tears
That you've never seen me cry
Or didn't care to see
Even when I know you love me too

And I'm losing you every day

depends on how many years he smoked for but it can take 3 months just to get over the withdrawls .....wave
Don't give up on him hug
I promise you, he could do with a hug anyway...writing
Your father is a smoker? I thought it was a crime you were referring to.

I don't smoke and I never will. But it doesn't keep me from hugging a smoker. You will never be able to change him. And you just have to accept that. Just make sure that the only time you stay away is when he lights up because 2nd hand smoke, as you probably well know, is still dangerous. But don't stop hugging him!
My father has been gone since 1983......I miss him....but, he quit smoking many years before...never told me he loved me till I was 25 years old....the people closest to us can wound us the most. I was in a relationship awhile ago to a very nice man...but when I told him he had to quit smoking or I could never kiss him...he quit calling me...what a strong hold tobacco has on people....be lonely or smoke??? live or die....healthy or sickness...we all make our own choices.....

I've given up on dating. I'm too old to care about it now, with what I want in life. A lot of men take decades to decide if they want marriage and children, and before said time they won't bother to actually talk to me. So I intend to have children o [read more]
