She said she'll think of whitty jokes
just to show that it's not all smoke.
She said she'll think of interesting facts
but the fact is that the pact was supposed to be
that she would go on a date with me.
She said she'll wear a nice dress
to make the date wait worth it.
I am worth the effort.
And it is for her own benefit.
She tells me, 'Goodnight my darling.'
Maybe one day I might hear her
whisper that in my ear.
When words are clear.
There will be no fear.
