A Little Son's Promise

As i was wheeled to the operating room
His little voice still lingered in my ears
The anesthesia was successfully done
And before i went into a deep sleep
I can still see his face in the waiting room
Worried, with tears in his eyes
But showed his bravery for me

We were alone in my hospital bed
Waiting for the doctors to come
I was having a miscarriage
Nervous and fear painted my face

My little boy was holding my hands
Touching my head, stroking my hair
With his soft voice, he whispered
'Don't be afraid, I am here,
I will take care of you, Mama

This promise of a little boy
Kept me going throughout my ordeal
He did touch my heart
And i was moved to tears
Knowing that in his innocent ways
He showed his bravery that night
And promised me
That everything will be alright

    Elegant and touching. It seems that the kindness of your father echoes in the voice of your son by way of your own.
