I Promise

I promise I’ll wipe your tears
I promise I’ll clean food off your soft round face
I promise I’ll hold you close when the pain feels too real
I promise to tie your shoes, and wash your clothes until you learn how
And I’ll hold your hand tight when you find your feet’s first steps
I promise I’ll pick you up when your arms reach for me
And I’ll sing you small lullabies.
I promise to show you your colors and letters and seasons and animals
I promise I’ll drop you off on time, and pick you up on time
And cheer for you win or loss
I promise I’ll help you through the tough times
I promise I won’t break you the way you’ll break me
I promise I’ll wait for you to come back
I promise I’ll wipe your tears
