I promise to wake up with you, when you cry at night.
I’ll feed you, change you, rock you - hold, and hug you tight.
I promise to chase after you when you start to crawl
And I promise not to “army up” all of your favorite dolls.
I promise I’ll play dress up, even wear a pink tutu
I’ll dance with you around the house, and laugh and joke with you
I promise to be present, at all of your tea parties.
And I’ll fight the urge to limp and moan, and pretend to be a zombie.
I promise I’ll come back for you when I drop you off at school
I know first days can be so scary, learning new class rules.
I promise not to let it show, if money’s ever tight.
I might say no to some things – but I promise it’ll be alright.
I promise when you’re flustered, I’ll help you build that ship
I promise to stop what I’m doing, at least for a little bit.
I promise to help you up, when you tumble down
I’ll make the pain disappear, and remove that little frown.
I promise I’ll pick flowers with you, on bright and sunny days.
We’ll smell the scent of each last one, and I’ll chase those bees away.
I promise to sit down with you, and make these arts and crafts.
I’ll wear these beaded bracelets – but you must promise not to laugh.
I promise we’ll tour zoos, ride trains, and look at cheetahs.
And I promise when its my turn to cook, we’ll just call and order pizza.
I promise I will root for you, and always hope that you win
But if you lose, it’s no big deal - still hold up that little chin.
I promise to stay with you and watch your favorite movies,
When you’re sick, stuck at home, and feeling kind of dreary.
I promise I won’t read emails while we’re playing with your dolls.
I promise they can wait a bit – even for just a while
I promise to help with homework, I know it can be hard.
Lets get it done together, and then go play in the yard
I promise not to talk too much, when I drive your friends to games.
You know it wasn’t that long ago, when my parents did the same.
I promise I’ll take pictures of you growing in front of my eyes
I want to capture each small bit, time so quickly passes by.
I promise when you grow up, and move away from daily sight.
I’ll talk to you each bright day, and pray for you each night.
Now, I can’t promise I’ll be perfect – this I admit is true.
But I can promise this, little girl, I will always love you.
