A PROMISE…

FOUR YEARS AGO YOU WERE TAKEN FROM US,

WE LOVE AND MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH.

WE MISS YOUR GLOW, YOUR WARM EMBRACE.

WE MISS YOUR PRESENCE, YOUR SMILING FACE,

 

AS YOUR BIRTHDAY APPROACHES OUR HEARTS STILL ACHE,

NO MORE PRESENTS OR BIRTHDAY CAKE,

NO MORE GOOD TIMES TO SHARE WITH YOU,

BUT WE STILL HAVE SO MUCH TO DO,

 

TO KEEP OUR PROMISE THAT WE MADE,

FOUR YEARS AGO THAT AUGUST DAY,

OUR EFFORTS FOR JUSTICE WILL NOT CEASE,

UNTIL YOU CAN FINALLY REST IN PEACE,

 

KNOWING THAT THOSE WHO TOOK YOU AWAY,

FOR THIS EVIL DEED THEY WERE MADE TO PAY,

AND THOSE THAT HINDER OUR TRUTHFUL QUEST,

KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER REST,

 

UNTIL BLANCHARD, ARBUCKLE, COREY, UCCI,

STAND IN JUDGEMENT BEFORE A JURY,

LET ROBERT SAND, SORRELL TOO,

KNOW THEY CANNOT HIDE THE TRUTH,

 

OF WHAT THEY’VE DONE, TO HIDE A KILLING,

TO BETRAY AN OATH THEY ARE ALL WILLING,

BUT WE WILL FINISH WHAT WE’VE BEGUN,

AND WE WON’T STOP UNTIL WE’RE DONE,

 

TO SHOW THE CORRUPT AND CROOKED WAYS,

OF ROBERT SAND VERMONT’S DA,

WHO BETRAYED THE SOLEMN OATH HE TOOK,

TO FREE A KILLER, A DIRTY CROOK,

 

AND NOW HE MUST LIVE WITH THAT SHAME,

AS HE ATTEMPTS TO PASS THE BLAME,

BUT THERE’S NOTHING HE CAN DO OR SAY,

TO HIDE HIS ACTS OF THAT FATEFUL DAY,

 

AND THOUGH THEY’VE TRIED THEY CAN’T DESTROY,

OUR LOVE FOR YOU, OUR OLDEST BOY,

THEY’LL NEVER TAKE AWAY THAT PART,

A PROMISE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS!

WE LOVE AND MISS YOU VINNIE,
