Setting of Beneath the White Willow – Novel by Maria Fokas

Promise me, you will do the things we dreamt of doing together 
Promise me, and if we ever meet again –
I promise to make things right.

. . .

Darkness has taken hold of me; there is no plea for my weakness 
But I will not forget:
The times you held my hand, when I was far above the ground
The times you held on, when I disappeared into the underworld
And if by chance, you ever trip and fall;
For doubt has a funny way of twisting certainty; Remember this:
I never knew a braver man than you; Noble to your promises, and generous with your soul
It will always be you; my love –

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)
