Promissum haiku

Quodcumque facis
Ibi tecum adero
Ubicumque vadis

Harry Wells

I am not too happy with my last line here because it has six syllables where it should have only five. In writing haiku the syllable count can be difficult. In a Latin haiku it’s even harder.
Can anybody improve this line without altering its meaning?
