The Harry Potter Pledge

I promise to remember Harry
When someone grows up with no love

I promise to remember Ron
When someone is jealous

I promise to remember Hermione
When I meet someone with wisdom beyond their years

I promise to remember James and Lily
When someone dies before their time

I promise to remember Dumbledore
At the thought of the greater good

I promise to “Solemely Swear That I Am Up To No Good”
for Gred, Forge, and Padfoot of course

I promise to remember Moony
And fight for human rights

I promise to remember Narcissa
When I’d do anything for family

I promise to remember Hedwig,
Who lived and died soaring

I promise to remember Percy
When ambition gets the best of me

I promise to have constant vigilance
For Mad-Eye’s sake, of course

I promise to remember Hagrid
When one is wrongly accused

I promise to remember Neville
When I stand up for what is right

I promise to remember the Marauders
When a friend says, “Call me, and I’ll be there.”

I promise to remember Dobby,
The free elf who served, saved, and saves

I promise to remember Luna
When I don’t care what other people think of me

I promise to remember Seamus
When things go wrong but I still persevere

I promise to remember Oliver
When I soar to great heights

I promise to remember the Dursleys,
When my parents still keep denying that they hid my Hogwarts acceptance letter

I promise to remember Gilderoy Lockheart
Whenever I chance upon narcissistic people

I promise to remember Snape
When my heart fills with remorse

I promise to remember J.K. Rowling
When I value the power of imagination

And when they ask, “After all this time?”
I’ll say, “Always.”

Yes, I promise that I will
Remember Harry Potter
