A Parents Promise


I promise to always love you
Even when liking you is hard
I promise to support your ambitions
No matter what they are
I promise to always listen
Even when I don't agree
I promise to let you be yourself
And not try to make you like me
I promise I'll never abandon you
Regardless of the choices you make
I promise to do my best as your parent
But please forgive my mistakes
I promise my problems will affect you in some way
I'll do my best not to let them
I promise to let you express your emotions
Though I'll always try to protect them
I promise to let you live your life
I'll nudge you if you start to stray
I promise to do the things I think are best
No matter what others might say
I promise you'll have heartache and pain
My shoulder will be there to cry on
I promise to never break a promise
That I'm someone you can always rely on

    Adolescent offsprings will no doubt cherish such promises from their parents.
    Sincerity too is obvious in giving the promises. Good write-up. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
