Promises


The promises made,
To give you the stars,
To give you the moon,
They say,

To paint you like Mona Lisa,
To sculpt you like Aphrodite,
To immortalize you they say,

I will not promise such hollow words,
Such words that cannot be met,
I cannot sculpt,
I cannot paint,
Nor will ever be able to fly one day,

I promise we shall have fights,
I promise to argue,
I promise to be blunt,
I promise at times to disagree,

I promise I will motivate you,
I promise to encourage your dreams,
I promise to take care of you in sickness and in health,
I promise to ease your life the best way I can,

I promise to dress you up like prom queen,
Make love to you like I’m your slave,
Be the inspiring dad for you kids,
Be the flirty, proud, ugly man I will be.
