My commitment

Innocence In the Making

Watching nature change
Watching nature change | Source

A promise to a child


I was there when you took your first breath

Opened your eyes big and bright

Filling my heart with love and delight


For this little being was part of me

All ten fingers and all ten toes

Proud of you as I could be


As the sands of time come and go

I will pick u up when u fall

As I stand by and watch you grow


Seasons pass and fade

I will share my knowledge with you

Now and every decade


I was sure showing you my love would be a test

As you grow and mature

Hoping you become the best


Becuz in your heart of hearts

And in your mind of minds

I know you are very smart


Wanting you to know no matter how big or small

The task at hand may be

Just set your mind to it u can conquer all


No matter what your dreams are

Nor where life takes you

I am never far


No matter how grown up u are

Nor the choices you make

You will always be my shining star

I will always be here for you.

I liked this, it conveys well the thoughts and feelings we as parents have as the apron strings are gradually loosened and we watch our babies go from children to adults. It's an amazing thing, yet a bit hard on us, it's never easy letting go.
