A Broken Promise

"May we meet again?" he asked, clutching her hand.
"Can you wait?" she replied.
"I can wait forever for you," he said with tears forming.
"Very well," she said, "Can you be here on this day next year. Can you wait that long?"
"I can. For you I can," he answered in a trembling voice.
"Very good," she said. "If you are here, I will be too. Goodbye for now."

She did not break her promise. He broke his which broke his heart - though nothing else was pressing. He was attracted to the unlikely and then the impossible.
