I Promise. . .

To love you unconditionally,
To help you find your way.
To listen to your thoughts and dreams
And guide you when you stray.


To teach respect and gratitude
And give the same to you.
To help you find the beauty in

Yourself and others too.

To let you spread your wings and fly

Although I'll want you near
I promise not to hold you back
Because of my own fear.

And so each day I promise you

I’ll always do my best

Although at times I’m sure to fail

I’ll love you none the less.

I'll give you space and build a trust
Between us that is strong
But let you break it now and then
So you learn right from wrong.

I promise to be kind.

I promise to be true.

I promise to be patient

In all I say and do.

I thought I knew humility

I thought that I was strong

I thought I knew a lot of things

And then you came along.

You see, you are a part of me

And so, till I depart

This ring I wear will always be

This promise from my heart.
